Alireza Amiri defected MKO Cult in Albania and returned to his homeland

After long years of captivity behind the physical and psychological bars of the Mujahedin-e Khalq Cult, Mr. Amiri managed to release himself from the Cult and returned to his family.

Amiri family did their utmost efforts to liberate their beloved son. Amiri family who are members of Nejat Society West Azarbaijan,Iran branch, wrote several letters to the human rights bodies such as Amnesty International, HRW, etc. They also met the Red Crescent representatives and emphasized on the release of their beloved son; Alireza.

The cult leaders eventually were forced to transfer Alireza to Albania along with some other residents of Camp Liberty.

In Tirana, far from the closed affaires of the MKO Cult, Mr. Alireza Amiri parted away with the group and contacted his family.

Open Letter of the Iranian Pen Club to Mr. Edi Rama Prime Minister of Albania

With most respectful greetings to Mr. Edi Rama Prime Minister of Albania

Your honor

With all due respect, we would like to inform you that Iranian Pen club ( Kanon Iran Galam) consists of dissident senior ex-members of PMOI with more than 20 years of history with the PMOI whom are now Human rights activists and pursuing to save the lives of the rest of the members entangled in Camp Liberty in Iraq.

Our goal is to help the other members who have not yet been able to release themselves from the above said Cult to be able to join their family in the free world and start a new life. On this reason, we thank you and the government of Albania for your humanitarian efforts in accepting some of the members of People’s Mojahedin Organization which has removed these people away from the dangers of remaining in Iraq.

We believe that you and your government has demonstrated its commitment to human rights by taking this important step to save to lives of these unfortunate people. Unfortunately, but what we hear from Ex members of Mojahedin in Tirana is somehow disturbing. We hear that Maryam Rajavi is sending her top known agents from Paris and these agents, who are from her ‘Leadership Council’, are now trying to control the lives of the recently arrived people as they did in the Iraqi camps. Also, the Mojahedin Organization has taken advantage of this opportunity and has placed some of its commanders among the ordinary PMOI members who have been sent to Albania, in order to supervise and control them.

Once they arrive in Albania one of the first things all the new arrivals do is to contact their families and seek out other forms of support.

The refugees are given time limited support by the UN refugee agency accommodation and a small living allowance which is deemed sufficient for them to settle in their new country and make new lives for themselves.

And the MEK does not easily relinquish its control over these former members and has made every effort to prevent them from living independently. But more importantly, these new arrivals are desperate to tell their stories. They want to speak out about the suffering they endured, some for many, many years.

In this respect we would like to bring to your respectful attention the International Human’s Right Watch report in 2005. The report titled “‘No Exit’ – Human Rights Abuses inside the Mujahidin Khalq Camps Human Rights Watch, May 2005” reflects extensive violation of the human rights, although it was a drop out of the ocean. The report is based on the direct testimonies of a dozen former MKO members, including five who were turned over to Iraqi security forces and held in Abu Ghraib prison under Saddam Hussein’s government. The report details how dissident members of the shadowy Mujahidin Khalq Organization (MKO) were tortured, beaten and held in solitary confinement for years at military camps in Iraq after they criticized the group’s policies and undemocratic practices, or indicated that they planned to leave the organization. Amongst them Mr. Mohammad Hussein Sobhani a dissident member of the MKO after 20 years of activity in the Organization was jailed for eight years which was later handed over to Saddam Hussein being jailed in Abu Ghorab Prison and experiences severe tortures and psychological and physical mistreatments.

http://www.hrw.org/legacy/backgrounder/mena/iran0505/

We also would like to point at the reports of Mr. Alibakhsh Afarinandeh which has recently been released from this Mujahidin Cult and published in the Pejwak website. Mr. Afarinandeh explaines his and other dissident members’ imprisonment and tortures in 1994 in great detail.

http://www.pezhvakeiran.com/maghaleh-67274.html

Surely, The Family of refugees and Iranian people will not forget your great and humanitarian act of harboring their children in Albania. We are prepared to hand over the names and particulars of the discontented members and those who wish to defect from the organization as well as necessary files and documents.

With many thanks and regards

Iranian Pen club

Rajavi cult abuse – Albania must protect human rights of Iranian refugees from MEK

Albania’s efforts to improve its human rights and bring them into line with European and international standards could be seriously undermined if it does not take action to curtail the activities of the terrorist Mojahedin Khalq cult organisation in that country. There is strong evidence that the MEK has bought land and property just outside Tirana in order to create a closed cult enclave similar to ones in Iraq, and that it is using coercion to keep refugees captive there where they are subject to systematic human rights abuses outside the supervision of the Albanian authorities.

The MEK is a terrorist organisation. It is being dismantled in Iraq because its presence and its activities there are illegal under Iraq’s constitutional law. UN officials have made high level efforts to persuade third countries to accept these individuals, in particular those with previous connections to those countries. Understandably, most Western countries have been extremely reluctant to allow trained terrorists into their countries even as refugees. Albania has, however, generously accepted to receive some of the Iranians as refugees. Since 2013, over four hundred of these former MEK combatants have been transferred from Camp Liberty in Iraq to Tirana by the UNHCR as refugees.

Unfortunately UN officials responsible for undertaking to transfer the residents of Camp Liberty have been hindered further in their task by the cult nature of the group. The MEK leaders have effectively imprisoned and isolated the residents of Camp Liberty just outside Baghdad, and refuse to allow them to leave independently or have contact with the outside world. This has meant that families wishing to help their loved ones have been unable to do so. MEK treatment of these people involves the violation of nearly all their internationally recognised human rights; including the right to form a family, to enjoy citizenship, freedom of belief and many more.

Once they arrive in Albania one of the first things all the new arrivals do is to contact their families and seek out other forms of support. The refugees are given time limited support by the UN refugee agency – accommodation and a small living allowance – which is deemed sufficient for them to settle in their new country and make new lives for themselves.

But the MEK does not easily relinquish its control over these former members and has made every effort to prevent them from living independently. One obvious reason is that the MEK want to maintain numbers so they can advertise to Western sponsors as an opposition group. But more importantly, these new arrivals are desperate to tell their stories. They want to speak out about the suffering they endured, some for many, many years. Their stories are of terrible internal human rights abuses committed by the MEK leaders over a period of thirty years (documented by HRW and RAND) and which are still ongoing. They are also witnesses to the MEK’s war crimes while the leaders Massoud and Maryam Rajavi collaborated with Saddam Hussein. The MEK is desperate to silence them.

As the first group arrived, the MEK dispatched senior members from Paris to intimidate them and re-create the cult hierarchy in Tirana. Although unable to physically contain these people, the MEK first offered money and then issued threats to coerce them into compliance. Even so, over half of them rejected the MEK.

The MEK has now created a physical space in which the cult can continue to impose the same strict controls that exist in all its bases. Albanian authorities overseeing the resettlement of these refugees may choose to believe the MEK’s deceptive arguments that this is a humanitarian act because this appears to fulfil the obligations the government has toward the refugees. But former MEK members and cult experts know that already this inaccessible enclave hides systematic human rights abuses.

A country’s commitment to improve human rights for its citizens must not be allowed to exclude the most vulnerable people, including refugees. If Albania is serious about ratifying international human rights conventions and harmonising existing legislation to comply with European standards this issue must be addressed as a matter of urgency before conditions for these vulnerable refugees become intractable.

Open letter to Ambassador Dritan Tola of Albania

Dear Excellency,

I am Mohammad Razaghi. I have been a member of the Mojahedin Khalq (Rajavi cult) for about 20 years, spending the best years of my life in the military camps of Saddam Hussein and Massoud Rajavi under conditions of brainwashing and physical abuse. I can say from first-hand experience that Massoud Ramavi an Maryam Rajavi have created a new version of slavery in the camps which were gifted to them by Saddam Hussain, and have used the enslaved members for purely personal benefit.

We were imprisoned at their hands in their camps. Massoud and Maryam Rajavi were personally responsible for creating the rules and regulations, and these ‘laws’ were implemented by their henchmen against us. Unfortunately now even after the fall of the dictator of Iraq, Saddam, this practice is still ongoing. The enslaved hostages are not allowed to move freely and walk out of the camp (now Camp Liberty). They are not allowed to send or receive mails or emails to and from their families and friends.

The so-called ‘members’ are not allowed to talk about their problems. All they are allowed to say is what has been dictated by the leaders. They are forced to repeat this and not to say anything else.

Inside the cult, men and women are not allowed to have any normal human relationship with each other. On the other hand, private conversations between even two men or two women are forbidden and can be seen as “plotting” by the leaders and hence punishable.

Members have no right to decide for their own future and the leaders choose everything, even things like what they should eat, drink or wear, etc.

Dear Ambassador Tola,

I thank you and the government of Albania for your humanitarian efforts in accepting some of the members of this organisation which has removed these people away from the dangers of remaining in Iraq. You government has demonstrated its commitment to human rights by taking this important step to save to lives of these unfortunate people.

But what we hear from Tirana is somehow disturbing. We hear that that Maryam Rajavi is sending her top known agents from Paris and these agents, who are from her ‘Leadership Council’, are now trying to control the lives of the recently arrived people as they did in the Iraqi camps. The pressure on these survivors of Camp Liberty camp who are now in your country is constant.

The Rajavi cult leaders threaten the newly arrived people and do not let them come out of the camp so they are now still fully under cult control in Albania. People have to ask for permission and with acceptable reasons to get exit visas from the commanders.

Some of the well-known torturers of Saddam’s Private Army (MKO) like Hassan Ezati (aka Nariman) or Mokhtar Janat Sadeghi (aka Mokhtar) or Hooshang Doodkani, have now been sent to Albania. These people are trained by Saddam’s forces and are now using their expertise to make the newly arrived people to submit the leaders’ demands.

The names of some of the people who have lost their lives under torture in the prisons of Saddam and Rajavi at the hands of these henchmen are:

Gharban ali Torabi Killed under torture

Jalil Bozorgmehr killed under torture

Parviz Ahmadin killed under torture

Dear Ambassador Tola,

I am not the only victim of torture carried out on the direct order of Massoud and Maryam Rajavi in Saddam’s camps and at the hands of these torturers who are now stationed in Albania. I am asking you to allow us to attend a court of law in your country to present our claims and allow us to seek justice.

While I was imprisoned on the direct order of Rajavi, I also witnessed the torture and murder of others in these cells. I would like to have the opportunity to provide witness statements about these crimes.

I would also like to warn your government that this cult is certainly capable of ordering its members under the influence of drugs as well as brainwashing to carry out self-immolation or to burn others – as they demonstrated clearly in the streets of European capitals in 2003 where some of the lost their lives and several others were left permanently scarred and disabled.

I would also like to wan you that some of these people now in your county have received high level training in explosives from Saddam’s Republican Guards.

Dear Ambassador Tola,

I believe that the only solution to these threats is not to allow the cult leaders to continue keeping their hold on these people. (At the simplest level they keeping control of them by paying 500 dollars per month in exchange for their cooperation.) Otherwise you will face having a dangerous cult take root in your country.

I would like to say that I and my other friends with similar experiences are ready to give evidence in a court of law.

Yours sincerely,

Mohammad Razaghi

Rajavi’s lobbyists demand Mojahedin Khalq terrorist cult in Iraq be re-armed rather than removed

Anne Khodabandeh (Singleton), Iran Interlink, January 14 2015:…  Whether delusional or corrupt, this gang – listed below and now posing as the International Committee in Search of Justice (ISJ) – says the residents of Camp Liberty should have their “personal protection weapons returned to them for self-defence following serious threats and attacks [sic] as the …

Rajavi’s lobbyists demand Mojahedin Khalq terrorist cult in Iraq be re-armed rather than removed

It is surely ironic that the same bunch of people who lobbied hard and at great expense to have the Mojahedin Khalq terrorist cult removed from European and American terrorist lists (the flimsy claim they had renounced terrorism was only possible because in 2003 the US army captured, disarmed and confined them to a single camp in Iraq), is now lobbying to have them re-armed.

Whether delusional or corrupt, this gang – listed below and now posing as the International Committee in Search of Justice (ISJ) – says the residents of Camp Liberty should have their “personal protection weapons returned to them for self-defence following serious threats and attacks [sic] as the Iranian regime’s intervention in Iraq grows”. But has neglected to inform their English speaking audience that the MEK leader, Massoud Rajavi, has demanded the MEK be re-armed with heavy weapons as well as small arms.

In any case, anyone who knows anything about the situation of Camp Liberty knows that the residents are deliberately imprisoned incommunicado inside the camp by the MEK leaders, that the greatest danger these residents face is from these MEK leaders, and that small arms are wanted in order to impose greater control over these captives as they become more and more desperate to escape the tyranny of the cult.

The ISJ statement should certainly not be read without context: Since attaining sovereignty in 2009, each successive government of Iraq has designated the MEK as a terrorist entity which must, under the Constitution, be entirely removed from Iraqi territory. The demand for re-arming rather than removing this group is doubly insulting for a country still swarming with Western spawned terrorist groups.

Perhaps the most ironic ‘complaint’ of the Committee is that the government of Iraq is not investigating the September 1, 2013 attack on Camp Ashraf in which fifty three people died. How is this possible when forty two key eye witnesses – survivors of the attack – have been incarcerated by the MEK inside Camp Liberty so that no investigator in the world has access to them?

Instead of demanding the MEK be re-armed ready to utilize violence again – the raison d’etre of the terrorist cult – this gang should be demanding from Massoud and Maryam Rajavi that each resident of Camp Liberty be given the opportunity to make contact with their families in privacy and to freely leave the camp if they desire. Then we would see how quickly and efficiently these people can be resettled.

List of members of the ISJ according to the MEK:

Alejo Vidal-Quadras, former MEP; Patrick Kennedy, former Congressman; Günter Verheugen, former member of the EU Commission; Nicole Fontaine, former MEP; General Hugh Shelton former US military; David Kilgour, former Canadian Secretary of State; Ingrid Betancourt; Raymond Tanter; Horst Teltschik; Colonel Wesley Martin, former US military; Senator Lucio Malan, Italian Senate; Alessandro Pagano MP; Antonio Razzi, Italian Senate; Gérard Deprez MEP; Ryszard Czarnecki, MEP; Tunne Kelam MEP; Lord Carlile, UK; Lord Clarke, UK; Lord Maginnis, UK; Lord Dholakia, UK
