"Today's decision marks the end of this intolerable probe," said William Bourdon، a lawyer for the NCRI and some of its members targeted by the probe. "The honor and legitimacy of the NCRI has been finally restored."
Through lawyers، NCRI members have denied the embezzlement charges.


The Paris prosecutor’s office confirmed Wednesday the case against the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq was closed. The group’s leader Maryam Rajavi said in a statement the decision was a “victory of justice and resistance over collaboration” between France and Iran




Rajavi, "The real criminals, who were involved in this dirty deal, those who ordered the arrests and ridiculed French justice for their political and economic interests, will have to face justice," One of the PMOI's lawyers, William Bourdon, told Reuters, "The scrupulous action of (anti-terrorism judge) Trevidic put an end to this serious failing, if not compliance, of the French justice with the manipulation of the Mullahs,"



Rajavi was among more than 150 detained in a sweep in 2003 around the group's headquarters in Auvers-Sur-Oise, outside Paris. She and 16 others were charged on suspicion of planning terrorist acts and terror financing. Rajavi was later released, and some charges were dropped as the probe progressed.
