Researcher at University of Cambridge: The MEK lost a friend by the execution of Saddam
An Iranian professor and researcher specializing in Middle East affairs at the University of Cambridge, Britain, Boya Ali Maqam, confirmed, Thursday, that the MEK is a group hated by the Iranian people because of its alliance with Saddam Hussein's regime.
Ashraf News quoted for Boya Ali Maqam in a tweet on his official account on the occasion of the anniversary of the execution of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, saying, "On this day 14 years ago, the MEK lost its friend, ally, sponsor and host, Saddam Hussein. ".
Ali Maqam added, "The MEK justifies its alliance with Saddam by using the old saying that (the end justifies the means), but they do not do so, and they are hated by the Iranians for their alliance with Iran's archenemy," referring to Saddam Hussein and the Iraqi Baath Party.
On December 30, 2006, Saddam Hussein was executed in the capital, Baghdad, after he was convicted of crimes. At the time, the order to execute him was signed by the former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.
