September 10, 2016
(Washington, DC) -- U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), a member of the Senate Armed Services and Foreign Relations committees, ‎released the following statement on the successful relocation to Albania of the last members of the Iranian dissident group, the Mujahedeen e-Khalq, who were being housed at Camp Liberty, Iraq.
 
"The United States had an obligation to find a safe sanctuary for these individuals, and I'm very relieved we've upheld our promise," said Shaheen. "Members of this Iranian opposition group have been stuck 
in limbo for years in an insecure environment with deadly consequences. I'm grateful to the Albanian government for working with the United States to find an overdue solution for relocation."
