Female defectors expose the MKO cult at the European Parliament (Mojahedin Khalq, MEK, Rajavi cult)
On the occasion of the International Women’s Day, three female defectors of the Mujahedin Khalq Organiation (the MKO) stated their steadiness in their efforts to liberate their friends who are still taken as hostages in the group.
Today, about 1000 women are kept in the MKO under the cult-like control of Maryam Rajavi.
Batoul Soltani, Homeira Mohammad Nejhad and Zahra Moieni are the disassociated members of the MKO who attended the European Parliament in Bruxel, Belgium on the Int. Women’s Day, March 8th.
During their visit with the EU representatives, they spoke of grieves and sufferings of a thousand Iranian women who are deprived from their basic rights under the rule of Maryam Rajavi.
Despite the propaganda launched by the MKO, these women could manage to bring the EU parliamentarian to hear the voice of the suffering women imprisoned behind the bars of the Cult of Rajavi.
The three female ex-members of the cult stressed their determination to keep on their work and support to fulfill the rights of their friends in the cult.
The women of the cult of Rajavi are enduring constant physical and mental pressure under the command of Maryam Rajavi. Modern slavery has made robots out of these women. According to the rules of the cult of Rajavi, female members are not allowed to marry and have children. They are not even allowed to contact their family. They are forced to wear hijab. Breaking the rules of the cult results in solitary confinement and mental and physical torture.
Massoud Rajavi has evidently told the five hundred members of the so-called Elite-Council of the cult that they are “maids” of Maryam Rajavi. A large number of these women have been serving Maryam in her headquarters in Paris for decades. Maryam Rajavi the co-leader of the cult is actually the executors of Massoud’s irrational and ambitious orders.
A list of women who have been physically and mentally tortured by the cult of Rajavi was submitted to human rights bodies and feminist movements.
Female members who are still captured in the cult of Rajavi are so horrified of torture that they cannot protest against the authorities of the cult. Some of these women are even in harder situation; they are imprisoned and isolated inside the cult; they are organizationally jailed.
Members of Women Association cult call on all justice and women’s rights movements and international bodies to investigate the case of women inside the MKO bases.
They probed the trial of Maryam and Massoud Rajavi in an international Court.

Open letter to PM Edi Rama. Who is in charge of the saft transferred Mojahedin Khalq (Rajavi cult) members in to your country?
Your Excellency Edi RAMA , the prime minister of Albania
I am Mrs. Zahra MOEINI, the separated member of people’s mojahedin organization of Iran ( Rajavi cult) , the terrorist cult which is residing in your country . Once I wrote a letter to you in 25.02.2016 and in that letter I warned you and your government that you and your government should be vigilant and careful about the operatives of this cult in your country. In that letter I emphasized that the only hope for those middle aged and old members of this cult who have been stuck in Rajavi cult under severe and harsh condition , is to be free of all those organizational barriers and obstacles in your country and in that letter I explained to you about the crimes of those cult operatives in your country , for that reason I urge you not to allow that this notorious and criminal cult take advantage of your country like they did in Iraq during Saddam HUSSEIN’s government and peace and tranquility be taken away from your country and your people .
In recent weeks we have received some information about those stranded and stuck members in your country that Mr. Mehdi ABRISHAMCHI , one of the high ranking officers of this cult , and some other operatives by the direct order of Mrs. Maryam RAJAVI , the cult leader , have been sent from Paris to Albania and he specially has been ordered to stay and work in this notorious cult in your country . His duty in that cult in your country is to yell and threaten the members who are dissident and want to separate from this cult , some of his threats against those members are as follows:
Albania is in our control and just with a simple phone call to internal minister and immigration office in Albania , we can do whatever we want .
The Albanian government is in our control and we can do whatever we want .
Do not think and give this hope to yourself that the UNHCR based in Albania support you , no the value and the power of UNHCR in Albania is like the value and the power of one ordinary person and they do nothing for you.
We have enough power and ability in Albania to destroy your refugee cases in Albania like we did against those separated members in Europe and in here , like Ehsan BIDI and Siyavosh RASTAR. The ones who want to separate from us , they should know that if they talk against our organization or if they get in touch with other separated members , we will block and destroy their refugee cases .
The question is how does Mr. Mehdi ABRISHAMCHI , claim that he and his cult has the upper hand in dealing with those members in Albania ? Do another Saddam Hussein support them, so he can talk and threaten like that ? This is a question that the Albanian government should respond and they should answer this question as well , how do Mr. Abrishamchi and other cult operatives threaten the cult members to death and destruction of their refugee cases in Albania?
Have you and your government given such a permission to the cult operatives in your country like Mr. Abrishamchi and others, to talk and threaten freely and publicly against those stranded and stuck members who have not been able to see their relatives and loved ones and been separated from the free world for long time because of this terrorist cult?
All the best
Iranian resistance group MKO to move to Albania (aka Mojahedin Khalq, MEK, NCRI, …)

Iranian resistance group MKO to move to Albania (aka Mojahedin Khalq, MEK, NCRI, …)
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The Iranian resistance and political group People’s Mujahedin of Iran, or Mojahedin-e-Khalq (MKO), which been operating from Iraq since 1986, is moving its members to a new base in Albania to continue the struggle against the Iranian government, according to Albanian media.
In past years, the MKO, led from Paris by Maryam Rajavi, has sent groups of members from their present location near Baghdad to Albania, where the group has acquired land and properties.
A group of 15 of the group’s leaders reportedly went there recently to set up a base.
The Iraqi newspaper Assabah Aljadeed is citing sources in Paris who claim the alleged plans are leading to a political storm in the Albanian capital, Tirana.
“The Albanian government fears that the camp will turn into something like Ashraf Camp previously. A base for military training, planning and preparation for military operations in Iran and abroad,” the paper reported.
Ashraf Camp, in Diyala province, was MKO’s main base in Iraq. In the 1980s, thousands of MKO members joined former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to fight in the Iran-Iraq War against their follow Iranians. They were given weapons and bases, notably Ashraf Camp.
After the Gulf War in 1991, the MKO helped Saddam put down the Kurdish uprising just north of the group’s main base.
The US invasion in 2003 led to the group being disarmed, and hundreds of disenchanted members defected. The remainder stayed at Ashraf Camp and forged close ties to the militant Sunni tribes of Diyala province, some of which were working with Al-Qaida in Iraq against the Americans and the Shiite-majority Iraqi government.
After repeated threats from the Iraqi government to forcefully evict the group from Iraq, and a number of incidents between MKO-members and Iraqi military, the United Nations intervened. The 1,000 or so remaining members were relocated to the former US base Camp Liberty near Baghdad airport.
From there, a new home would be sought for the aged members, most of whom now are in their 50s and 60s.
In 2013, at the request of the then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Albania agreed to take in over 200 of MKO members on humanitarian grounds. Since then, some 400 members have moved from Iraq to Albania. The total number of MKO members in Albania is expected to reach an estimated 500 members.
Interlink, an organisation of former MKO-members in London, warned against the plans for the camp in Albania.
“MKO will make a new enclave there that is outside the law, where they will be rearmed and invite people in for training,” said Massoud Khodabandeh, director of Interlink.
Part of the deal arranged by Clinton was the removal of MKO from the US list of terrorist organisations.
Now, with politics changing after the nuclear deal between Iran and the US, the MKO is scrambling to find new friends, according to Khodabandeh.
He said there have been reports that the MKO even offered the Saudis to help fight against the Shiites in Yemen.
Khodabandeh said that while various routes to Turkey, Syria and Iraq are under scrutiny, “terrorist commanders from any mercenary group can slip beneath the radar and seek training and logistical support in Tirana.”
“What better location to establish a clandestine terrorist training camp than in Albania? It is in Europe, but not in the EU and therefore not so open to scrutiny by the international community. It is a Muslim country but is also notorious for corruption and mafia-like gangs,” he said.
“The message is [that] the MKO have branched out and are open to do business with any terrorist group.”
At the same time, the situation for MKO in Iraq is getting increasingly precarious due to the Iran-linked militias that Baghdad has allowed to take up arms against ISIS.
To add to this potential crisis, the families of some MKO members have protested outside Camp Liberty, claiming the group’s leadership is stealing their spouse by moving them to Albania.
A group of these spouses said the MKO told its members to make Molotov cocktails for fear of attacks by the Iranian militias.
According to the spouses, MKO fears an attack would come under the cover of a visit by families members.
Even though the Iraqi Ministry of Human Rights and the Red Cross have requested that MKO allow family members to visit, they have so far not been allowed in.
Some of these spouses have reportedly not seen their loved ones since they joined the MKO.
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
Holly Dagres, Huffington Post, December 12 2014:… Maryam Rajavi’s marriage to one of the original founders of the MEK symbolized the transformation from an organization to a “cult of personality.” With the money provided by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein–they formed an alliance due to a deep disdain for the Iranian regime–to “construct self-sufficient camps” …
