A number of defectors of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO/ MEK/ PMIO/ the Cult of Rajavi) attended the annual conference of Geneva Summit for human rights and democracy on February 20, 2018.
According to a report by Peyvand-e Rahaiee –an association founded by the defectors– Ghorban Ali hosseinnejad, Batul Soltani, Davoud Baghervand and Amir Movasaghi met various human rights activists, authorities of the Summit and politicians in order to express the voice of victims of the MKO as a cult-like system that isolates its victims in the outskirt of Tirana Albania forbidding any contact with the outside world even with their families.
The annual conference of democracy and human rights is an opportunity for revelations on violation of human rights in different countries, organizations and establishments. Therefore, the MKO former members revealed facts on human rights violations in the modern slavery system of the Cult of Rajavi that manipulates the victims changing them into robots.
The survivors of the Cult of Rajavi introduced themselves to the authorities giving testimonies on the abuses they underwent during their membership in the cult.
As a woman who was sexually abuse by the leader of the cult, Massoud Rjavi, Batul Soltani testified in the event.
The defectors asked the authorities to be the voice of the victims of terrorist extremist groups such as the MKO, ISIS and Boko Haram in the human rights bodies and the United Nations, reported Peyvand-e Rahaiee. They warned that focusing on human rights violations by the states should not distract the human rights bodies from severe human rights violation that is taking place in the extremist cults on daily basis.

Appreciation for monthly payments to MKO defectors in Albania
Two former members of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO/ MEK/ PMOI/ the Cult of Rajavi) visited the officials of the UN High Commissioners for Refugees.
On Tuesday February 20, Ghorban Ali Hosseinnezhad and Davoud Baghervand as founders of “NO to Terrorism and Cults” association visited the UNHCR authorities in the central office of the commissioners in Geneva. The two MKO defectors discussed the situation of the refugees who have recently left the MKO in Tirana, Albania.

They appreciated the UNHCR’s taking action to pay the refugees’ monthly payment independently excluding the MKO authorities from confiscating the defectors’ money.
As former high ranking members of the MKO cult, Hossseinnejad and Baghervand gave testimonies on what they underwent and witnessed in the oppressive system ruling the MKO and warned the authorities about the critical situation of those who are still in the group. They described the physical, mental and financial pressure that the MKO leaders impose on their member as if they are their hostages.
Hosseinnejad asserted that the actions of the human rights bodies will not be effective unless the hostages of the MKO’s cult-like system are informed of their basic human rights and are able to decide for their future with their own free will. So the HCR authorities should visit the MKO hostages regularly and ensure them that HCR supports them in any case. ”they are bombarded with disinformation about the UNHCR and the free world as the world of capitalism and bourgeoisie,” Hosseinnejad told the authorities.
The authorities of the UNHCR promised to inquire the situation of the current members of the MKO as well as the defectors of the group.
Testimony of three Mojahedin: The truth about the MEK (Mojahedin Khalq, MKO, NCRI, Maryam Rajavi cult)
Top Channel TV, February 13 2018:… In October 2017, the National Land Council approved a construction permit for the special camp, which had already begun construction in Manzë in Durres. The transfer of Mojahedin to the new premises is already well underway. This camp is being built by ‘FARA’ association.

Fiks Fare / Testimony of three Mojahedin: The truth about the MEK (Mojahedin Khalq, MKO, NCRI, Maryam Rajavi cult)
Fiks Fare addresses the problem of 200 members who escaped from the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI aka MEK, Rajavi cult), three thousand of whom were transferred here from Camp Liberty in Baghdad, Iraq.
These Mojahedin, disillusioned with their organization, have left the camp and now live without any economic aid or social support. Without immigration status, without any ID and no income, they cannot return to their country or to the MEK camp.
With their testimony to Fiks Fare, they shed light on what is actually happening in the Mojahedin camp, which is being built in Manzë in Durres under a decision by the National Land Council.
Albania accommodated about 3,000 Iranian Mojahedin in Albania between March 2013 until September 2016, when the last 280 arrived from Camp Liberty in Iraq.
In September 2014, Prime Minister Rama met with Secretary of State John Kerry at the NATO Summit in Wales and discussed the hosting of the Mojahedin. In April 2015, this issue was revised again in Washington between Bushati and Secretary Kerry.
At the beginning of 2016, Prime Minister Rama agreed to accommodate all of the 1,970 Mojahedin still in Baghdad. This agreement was made during the visit of Secretary of State John Kerry to Albania in February 2016. On 10 September 2016, the UN said it had completed the transfer of all Mojahedin from Iraq to Albania. At that time, US Senator John McCain welcomed completion of the mission to transfer the Mojahedin to Albania.
In the agreement it was decided that the Iranian Mojahedin would be housed in a special camp built by the Albanian government in co-operation with the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
Initially, the Mojahedin were given residences in two areas of Kashar.
They were seen together for the first time in March 2017, when a super organization of three thousand members of the Iranian opposition MEK, under conditions of total secrecy, celebrated the Persian New Year, otherwise known as Nowruz, at the Palace of Congresses in Tirana.
The leader of the Iranian resistance, Maryam Rajavi, who lives in France, was engaged in this organizational activity. She stayed in Albania for several days, where she met with not only her supporters, but also with some Albanian politicians.
In October 2017, the National Land Council approved a construction permit for the special camp, which had already begun construction in Manzë in Durres. The transfer of Mojahedin to the new premises is already well underway. This camp is being built by ‘FARA’ association.
Fiks Fare approached the Court of Tirana to inquire about this association which turns out to have been registered by court decision No. 5538 on 08.02.2017.
What is the Mojahedin organisation?
The Iranian Mojahedin is an opposition movement in exile, aimed at overthrowing the Islamic Republic of Iran. It is also known as MEK. The movement was founded in 1965 by a group of left-wing students and the goal was to overthrow the Shah of Iran. When the Shah fell, another clash began: between the Mojahedin and fundamentalist supporters of Ayatollah Khomeini, who took power.
By the end of 1981, many of its members and supporters fled abroad and their main location of residence was France.
In 1986, the movement moved its base of operations to eastern Iraq, but the situation changed with the American invasion of Iraq in 2003. US forces attacked them as targets but reached a ceasefire agreement with them and afterwards came disarmament. It was decided the MEK would be held in Camp Ashraf, the former Iraqi military base.
But after the American withdrawal from Camp Ashraf in 2011, acts of violence erupted between the MEK and Iraqi soldiers. Then later that year they were moved to Camp Liberty, outside Baghdad. Because of lack of security for the MEK, the need for their relocation from Iraq to other countries, including Albania, was born.
Testimony: MEK is an organization comprising many highly trained war-ready soldiers
The Fiks Fare show has managed to find some former members of this organization – 3 of the 200 defectors from MEK. All three respondents claim that the Mojahedin hiding in Manzë camp are warriors very well-prepared for battle.
According to them, the MEK imposes very stringent conditions on members, whereby any communication with families is strictly forbidden. Today the three live in some UNCHR-paid flats, but they will soon reach a crossroads because they do not have any identification documents, neither migrant status nor political refugee status.
Interview with Sadollah Seifi, former MEK member, who left the organization 8 months ago
I am Sadollah Seifi, I was born in Iran in 1969. I become part of the Mojahedin organization aged 21.
Why did you become part of this organization?
When I lived in Iran there were many problems in the country, especially economic problems. For this reason, I joined this organization hoping to bring a better future for my people.
How did you become acquainted with this organization?
They have a radio and spread propaganda in Iran. I heard on the radio that they had some bases in other countries such as Turkey and that they were preparing to fight against Iran. I connected with this base in Turkey and went there.
When you were part of the MEK, what happened inside?
In the early days when I was there, they talked about freeing the people, about freedom. But then I realized that everything was a lie.
Why do you think they were lies?
Because they are a frightening organization, they have a lot of agents who force you to do what they want. And you have to do what they say. I went there of my own free will, but they forced me to do what they said.
Did you receive ideological lessons and what was said to you?
We were constantly undergoing ideological teaching. ‘You should not create a family. You do not have a family. You must do what the leader of your organization says’.
When you came here to Tirana, how long did you stay in the organization and when did you leave?
I’ve been here for 8 months and it’s been three months since I left the organization.
Why did you decide to leave the organization?
Because they told us only lies, and when we were in Iraq I was not able to leave. It was just like a prison there.
Is Manzë similar to Camp Ashraf?
From what others have told me it is like in Ashraf. When I came here I thought here is my chance for freedom and I was gone from there.
With what money do you live here?
During these three months some friends have helped me live and my family sent me money.
Your friends are with the Mojahedin?
No, they have left the organization.
You do not get the [MEK] money?
No, they have never given me any since they accused me of having links with other defectors and they have called me a traitor.
Where you live now?
The UNHCR pays for the house where I live and gives me a food package per month. Here there is no future for us, all is darkness. The MEK, the Albanian government, UNHCR and the US government brought us here on the basis of an agreement, but we have no status. We do not have residence permits, the right to work. I’ve been to many of your country’s organizations, but no one helped me because they told me you have no status here and we do not accept refugees here. I do not know what I can do here …
Are there many who left this organization?
As far as I know, there are about 200 people who have left. If you are part of this organization, they impose some rules to keep people inside. Here in Albania, the rules changed so they cannot force people as they did in Iraq. But there are some rules that make it difficult for people to leave. One is this situation, that if you leave you do not have money to live, since you have no status here, you cannot work. So, the situation is such that people find it difficult to escape.
Do you fear for the future? What are you going to do here? You have no documents and have no status.
I want to leave this place, but I cannot get any documents to escape. Here I have no future. Your Government, the Interior Ministry, does not give us any opportunity for me to stay here. When I’m in the street, the police can stop me and ask, ‘who you are?’ During these three months, I tried to get a residency permit, but your government tells us that they lost our documents. While only a few days ago they said they were going to create our documents to give us residential citizenship, but we have not received anything so far. Our demands are at least to allow our families to come here to help us.
Interview with Ehsan Bidi, former member of the MEK
There was war between Iran and Iraq. The MEK gave information about Iran to the Iraqi government and the government of Saudi Arabia. They are paid by them. They worked for Saddam Hussein’s intelligence and Saudi Arabia.
Do you have family, wife, children?
No, I do not. It was not my choice but because this organization is a sect (cult). When you are their victim you cannot have a wife, you cannot have children, you have to be alone.
Why did you make this sacrifice?
It was not my choice and it was not my sacrifice because they forced me to choose between life and death. If I wanted to be alive I had to give up everything, it was not my choice. During all these 15 years I was a victim. I was not allowed to have contact with my family and call them. Everything was forbidden to us.
At what age did you join this organization and why did you become part of it?
At age 24. I was a long-time sympathizer in Iran. When I realized that they were lying to me and that they were terrorists, I didn’t want any further connection to them. I left and started working as a mechanic in a private business. They sent some sympathizers to visit me who told me that ‘the government is asking after you, many of your friends are in prison. You have to leave the country immediately because the Iranian government will kill or imprison you’. I left, not for myself but for my family and I went with this organization. After I left Iran I went to Turkey; I did not have a passport to travel with. The organization took me in and gave me a fake document to go to Iraq.
What role did you have in this organization?
I did not give them any kind of information after I realized they were lying to me. They did not lie to me alone, but they lied to everyone. Many people were in Turkey. They came and told us you have to go back to Iraq and stay for 3 months, and then we will take you to whatever place they want in Europe. But everything was a lie because you see that everyone is now in Albania. If you go to that organization with their documents, you are as a prisoner because you have no other choice, no way to leave.
How does this organization work?
We have lived armed. We are separated into groups and classes to take theoretical ideological lessons. They told us how we were better than the Iranian government.
You have an Albanian driving license, but do not have a passport?
Yes, but it is in the process. First. I will be given an identity card then the passport. This organization has made this place a prison for us. No one supports us.
What did you do in practice, who ordered you to do attacks?
The Organization. It created special groups and sent them into Iran to attack by setting off bombs.
In the organization I learned everything about weapons and how to kill people. Many of these people that you see here are not people, they are war machines.
Interview with Manouchehr Abdi, expelled by the MEK
When I was 42 I became part of this organization and I’m now 55 years old. So, I’ve been a victim of this organization for 13 consecutive years. When I was living in my country of Iran, there were many problems and the situation was not good in both the political as well as the economic sense. I had many dreams about the freedom of my country and I joined this organization. But then I realized that this organization was a big lie. They lied to us, they are a sect (cult), I could not immerse myself in it.
What did you do in the camp, did you learn to use weapons, did you have military training?
At the beginning, we did ordinary work just as all people do. During those years Iran had many problems, especially economic. The MEK organization had many cells and sympathizers in Iran and they promised many young people that if they went to Iraq and became part of it they would benefit from a lot of money.
Was it hard to escape from the MEK?
Yes, it was very difficult. Because we had no connection with the life outside. We did not know anything about it. We had no phone or internet knowledge, we had no contact with our family. I came here afterwards with this organization because it had an agreement between the government of Albania and the US government. The UNHCR brought me here and now for 8 months I’m out of the MEK and live alone.
Why did you decide to leave when you came here?
Because when I was in Iraq I tried to make contact with my daughter, but they did not allow me to. There were many families who came to Camp Ashraf to meet their family members, but this organization forced the members to reject being their children and actually attacked those families.
Is the camp in Albania the same as in Iraq?
They are creating something similar.
I asked to see my daughter, but they have made an agreement with your government not to allow our families to come and see us. So, if you are a part of this organization you cannot have any connection with your family, it is forbidden to you.
Here some groups of MEK are linked to people, with young people in Iran, via the internet, social media, and they teach them how to fight, how to kill others in Iran.
When I was part of the organization I was part of a group that virtually connected with a group of young people in Iran and taught them how to fight. Because you should know that everyone in this organization knows how to fight to kill. So, we are prepared militarily, we know everything about weapons. We teach young people in Iran through Skype. I did not need to undertake military training because before I joined the organization I had been in the Iranian army.
You do not have any status here, you are not allowed to work. On what income do you live now?
Some friends, who have also escaped from this organization, help me. Many of them receive money from the organization. I did not because they declared me an agent of Iran [because I contacted my family and they expelled me]. But others receive money based on an agreement between your government and the organization so that whoever leaves the organization, the latter pays for them to live in Albania. Maryam Rajavi, the leader of this organization, lives in France and often comes here and holds meetings. At one of these meetings, she said those who have left the organization in Albania are traitors and they should be killed.
What will you do now?
I cannot do anything. I do not have a passport because this organization does not allow your government to give us one. I have no status. It’s just like a prison. For the past three months I have lived in an apartment paid for by the UNHCR. So, I came here to tell you about this situation. My family cannot send money because they are under economic hardship. My friends do not have the means to help me. This is not just my problem. Even the people who received the MEK money already have been contacted and told that if you leave, we will pay you for three months and then you have to sign a document to say that you agree to refund the money again and that you no longer need any money. This is the problem for all those who leave.
Why are you in Fiks Fare today?
You know that every political refugee has that status in every country in the world. We do not. We are simply residing in Albania without status. We have all been brought here with no documents or status. I have suffered a lot as a victim of this organization. Now that I have left, do I not have the right as a human being to live like everyone else. I cannot work. This is the problem for all of us.
Fiks Fare/ Dëshmia e tre muxhahedinëve: E vërteta e organizatës MEK
Fiks Fare sjell sot problemin e 200 anëtarëve të larguar nga Organizata Popullore e Muxhahedinëve të Iranit, tre mijë anëtarë të së cilës u transferuan nga kampi “Liria” në Bagdad.
Këta muxhahedinë të zhgënjyer nga organizata e tyre janë larguar nga kampi dhe jetojnë pa asnjë ndihmë ekonomike apo përkrahje sociale. Pa statusin e emigrantit, pa asnjë dokument identifikues, pa të ardhura, ata nuk mund të kthehen as në vendin e tyre dhe as më në kamp
Me dëshminë e tyre për Fiks Fare, ata hedhin dritë mbi atë që ndodh realisht në kampin e muxhahedinëve, i cili po ndërtohet në Manzë të Durrësit me një vendim të Këshillit Kombëtar të Territorit
Shqipëria ka strehuar rreth 3000 muxhahedinë iranianë në Shqipëri që nga marsi i vitit 2013 deri në shtator të vitit 2016, kur mbërritën 280 të fundit nga kampi “Liria” në Irak.
Në shtator të vitit 2014, Kryeministri Rama u takua me Sekretarin e Shtetit John Kerry, në samitin e Uellsit të NATO-s, dhe diskutuan për strehimin e muxhahedinëve të tjerë. Në prill të vitit 2015, kjo çështje u ridiskutua përsëri në Uashington mes Ministrit Bushati dhe Sekretarit Kerry.
Në fillim të vitit 2016, Kryeministri Rama pranoi të strehojë të gjithë 1970 muxhahedinët e mbetur ende në Bagdad. Kjo marrëveshje u përfundua gjatë vizitës së Sekretari të Shtetit John Kerry në Shqipëri në shkurt 2016. Më 10 shtator 2016, OKB tha se ka përfunduar zhvendosja e muxhahedinëve nga Iraku drejt Shqipërisë. Në atë kohë, senatori amerikan John Mcain, përshëndeti përfundimin e misionit të ardhjes së muxhahedinëve në Shqipëri.
Në marrëveshje ishte vendosur që muxhahedinët iranianë do të strehohen në një kamp të posaçëm të ndërtuar nga qeveria shqiptare në bashkëpunim me Agjensinë e Kombeve të Bashkuara për Refugjatët (UNHCR).
Fillimisht, muxhahedinët u strehuan në dy zona të Kasharit.
Ata u panë të bashkuar për herë të parë në mars të vitit 2017, kur me një super organizim, në kushtet e sekretit total, tremijë anëtarë të opozitës iraniane MEK, festuan në Pallatin e Kongreseve në Tiranë vitin e ri Persian, i njohur ndryshe si Novruzi.
Për këtë organizim u angazhua vetë liderja e rezistencës iraniane, Maryam Rajavi, e cila jeton në Francë. Ajo qëndroi për disa ditë në Shqipëri, ku pati takime, jo vetëm me mbështetësit e saj, por edhe me disa politikanë shqiptarë.
Ndërsa në tetor 2017, Këshilli Kombëtar i Territorit miratoi edhe lejen për ndërtimin e kampit të posaçëm, i cili ka nisur ndërtimin në Manzë të Durrësit dhe aktualisht ka filluar transferimi i muxhahedinëve pranë ambienteve të reja. Këtë kamp po e ndërton shoqata F.A.R.A.
Fiks Fare ju drejtua gjykatës së Tiranës për t’u intersuar lidhur me këtë shoqatë e cila rezulton të jetë e regjistruar me vendim gjykate, nr 5538, në datën 08.02.2017.
Çfarë janë muxhahedinët?
Muxhahedinët iraniane është një lëvizje opozitare në mërgim, që synon rrëzimin e republikës islamike të Iranit. Ajo njihet ndryshe me emrin MEK. Lëvizja u themelua në vitin 1965 nga një grup studentësh të majtë dhe qëllimi ishte të rrëzonin Shahun e Iranit. Kur Shahu u rrëzua, nisi një përplasje tjetër: mes muxhahedinëve dhe fondamentalistëve të Ajatollah Khomeinit që morën pushtetin.
Ne fund te vitit 1981 shume anëtare dhe mbështetës te saj u larguan jashtë vendit dhe qendra e tyre kryesore e strehimit u be Franca.
Ne vitin 1986 lëvizja e zhvendosi bazën e operacioneve ne lindje te Irakut, por situata ndryshoi me pushtimin amerikan te Irakut. Forcat amerikane sulmuan objektivat e tyre por arritën armëpushim dhe pas çarmatosjes, u vendos qe ata te mbaheshin ne kampin Ashraf, ish-baze ushtarake irakene.
Por me tërheqjen e amerikaneve nga Ashrafi ne 2011-en nisen aktet e dhunes mes tyre dhe ushtareve irakiane. Me pas atë vit ata u zhvendosen ne kampin Liria, jashtë Bagdadit. Për shkak te pasigurisë për jetën lindi edhe nevoja e zhvendosjes se tyre nga Iraku drejt vendeve te tjera, mes te cilave ishte edhe Shqipëria.
Dëshmia: MEK një organizatë me ushtarakë shumë të përgatitur për luftë
Emisioni Fiks Fare ka arritur të gjejë disa ish anëtarë të kësaj organizate, 3 prej 200 të larguarve nga MEK. Të tre të intervistuarit pohojnë se muxhahedinët e strehuar në kampin e Manzës, janë ushtarakë të përgatitur shumë mirë për luftë.
Sipas tyre, MEK ka kushte shumë të rënda, ku u ndalohet rreptësishtë komunikimi me familjet. Sot ata jetojnë në disa banesa që ua ka paguar UNCHR, por që shumë shpejt do mbeten në mes të 4 rrugëve, pasi nuk kanë asnjë dokument identifikimi, as status emigrant dhe as atë të emigrantit politik
Intervistë me Sadala Sefi, ish anëtar I MEK, larguar nga organizata 8 muaj më parë
Unë jam Sadala Sefi, kam lindur në Iran në vitin 1969 . Unë jam bërë pjesë e organizatës së muxhahedinëve në moshën 21 vjeçare.
Pse u bëtë pjesë e kësaj organizate?
Kur unë jetoja në Iran kishte shumë probleme në vend sidomos ekonomike. Për këtë arsye shkova në këtë organizatë për të sjellë një të ardhme më të mirë për njerëzit.
Si jeni njohur me këtë organizatë?
Ata kanë radio dhe bëjnë propagandë në Iran. Unë dëgjova në radio se ata kishin disa baza në vende të tjera si në Turqi dhe se ata po përgatiteshin për të luftuar në Iran. Unë u lidha me këtë bazë në Turqi dhe shkova atje.
Kur ju u bëtë pjesë e MEK, çfarë ndodhte aty brenda?
Në ditët e para kur unë isha atje, ata flisnin për njerëzit e lirë, për lirinë. Por më pas unë kuptova se gjithçka ishte gënjeshtër.
Pse mendoni se ishin gënjeshtra?
Sepse ata janë një organizatë e frikshme ata kanë shumë agjentë, të cilët të detyrojnë të bësh atë që ata duan. Dhe ti duhet të bësh atë që thonë ata. Unë shkova atje me vullnetin tim të lirë, por ata më detyruan të bëja atë që
Vazhdonit të merrnit mësime ideologjike dhe çfarë ju thuhej?
Po vazhdimisht bënim mësim ideologjik. Ju nuk duhet të ndërtoni familje. Ju nuk keni familje. Ju duhet të bëni atë që ju thotë liderja e organizatës.
Kur ju erdhët këtu në Tiranë, sa kohë qëndrove në organizatë dhe kur u largove?
Kam 8 muaj që jam këtu dhe që prej tre muajsh jam larguar nga organizata.
Pse vendosët të largoheni nga organizata?
Sepse ata na kanë thënë ne vetëm gënjeshtra dhe kur ishim në Irak unë nuk kisha mundësi të largohesha, aty ishte tamam si burg .
Manza është e ngjashme me ASHRAF?
Po nga ato që më kanë thënë të tjerët është si në ASHRAF. Kur unë erdha këtu mendova se këtu ishte liri dhe ndaj ika.
Me çfarë parash jeton këtu?
Gjatë këtyre tre muajëve disa miq më kanë ndihmuar të jetoj si dhe familja ime më ka dërguar para.
Miqtë e tu janë muxhahedinë?
Jo, edha ata janë larguar nga organizata.
Ju nuk merrni para?
Jo ata nuk më kanë dhënë asnjëherë, pasi më kanë akuzuar se unë kam pasur lidhje me të larguarit ndaj më kanë quajtur tradhtar.
Ku jetoni tani?
UNCHR më paguan shtëpinë ku jetoj dhe më jep një paketë ushqimesh në muaj. Këtu nuk ka asnjë të ardhme për ne çdo që është errësirë MEK , qeveria shqiptare , UNCHR dhe qeveria amerikane në bazë të një marrëveshjeje na sollën këtu ,por ne nuk kemi asnjë status. Nuk kemi leje qëndrimi, të drejtë punësimi. Kam shkuar këtu në shumë organizata të vendit tuaj, por askush s’më ka ndihmuar pasi më kanë thënë që ju nuk keni status këtu dhe ne nuk pranojmë refugjatë këtu. Unë nuk e di se çfarë mund të bëj këtu…
A ka shumë të larguar nga kjo organizatë?
Sa jam në dijeni unë, janë rreth 200 vetë që janë larguar. Nëse bëhesh pjesë e kësaj organizate ata krijojnë disa rregulla që t’i mbajnë njerëzi brenda. Këtu në Shqipëri rregullat ndryshojnë ata s’mund t’i mbajnë me forcë njerëzit siç bënin në Irak. Por kanë disa rregulla që ta bëjnë situatën e vështirë që njerëzit të mos largohen dot. Një është kjo situatë, që nëse largohesh ti nuk ke para për të jetuar, duke qenë se këtu nuk ke as status, nuk ke mundësi qe të punosh. Pra situata është e tillë që njerëzit e kanë të vështirë të ikin.
A keni frikë për të ardhmen, çfarë do të bëni këtu?Ju s’keni dokumente s’keni status?
Unë dua të iki nga ky vend, por nuk mundem nuk kam asnjë dokument për të ikur. Këtu nuk kam asnjë të ardhme. Qeveria juaj, Ministria e Brendshme nuk na jep asnjë mundësi që unë të rri këtu. Kur unë jam në rrugë, policët mund të më ndalojnë dhe të më pyesin kush je ti?Gjatë këtyre tre muajve jam munduar të marr lejen si një person rezident por qeveria juaj më thotë që kemi humbur letrat tuaja. Ndërsa vetëm pak ditë më parë më thanë ne po përgatisim letrat e tuaja si shtetas rezident,por asgjë s’kam marrë deri tani. Kërkesat tona janë të paktën, të na lënë familjet tona të vijnë këtu të na ndihmojnë.
Intervistë me HAsan Bidi, ish-anëtar I MEK
MEK i jepte informacion për Iranin qeverisë së Irakut dhe për qeverinë e Arabisë Saudite. Ata paguhen nga këta. Ata punojnë për Sadam Husenin dhe inteligjencën e Arabisë Saudite. Kishte luftë midis Iranit dhe Irakut .
Keni familje, grua, fëmijë?
Jo nuk kam . Nuk ka qenë zgjidhja ime, sepse kjo organizatë është si një sekt. Kur ti je pjesë viktimë e saj ti nuk mund të kesh grua, nuk mund të kesh fëmijë,ti duhet të jesh vetëm.
Pse e keni bërë këtë sakrificë?
Nuk ishte zgjidhja ime dhe nuk ishte sakrifica ime, sepse ata më detyruan me jetë a vdekje. Nëse unë doja të isha i gjallë duhet të lija gjithçka, nuk ishte zgjedhja ime. Gjatë gjithë këtyre 15 viteve unë isha viktimë nuk më lejuan të kisha kontakt me familjen time dhe t’i telefonoja ata. Çdo gjë ishte e ndaluar për ne.
Në cilën moshë jeni futur në këtë organizatë dhe pse u bëtë pjesë e saj?
Në moshën 24 vjeçare. Unë isha simpatizant i tyre prej shume kohësh në Iran. Kur unë e kuptova që ata po më gënjenin mua dhe se ishin terroriste, nuk doja më të kisha lidhje me ta. Kur unë ika dhe fillova të punoja si mekanik në një aktivitet privat ata më dërguan mua disa simpatizantë të cilët më thanë se qeveria po të kërkon ty, shumë nga miqtë e tu janë në burg. Ti duhet të ikësh nga ky vend shumë shpejt sepse qeveria iraniane do të vrasë ose do të burgosë . Unë ika,jo për veten por për familjen time dhe shkova në këtë organizatë. Pasi lashë Iranin shkova në Turqi. Nuk kisha pasaportë për të udhëtuar. Ajo organizatë m’i mori të gjitha dhe më dha një dokument fallco për të shkuar në Irak.
Cili ishte roli që ke pasur në këtë organizate?
Nuk ju kam dhënë asnjë lloj informacioni, pasi e kuptova që ata po më gënjenin. Nuk më gënjenin vetëm mua, por të gjithë i kanë gënjyer .Shumë prej njerëzve janë në Turqi. Ata erdhën dhe na thanë duhet të ktheheni në Irak dhe të qëndroni 3 muaj, e me pas ne do t’ju çojmë në çfarë vendi të dëshironin në Europë. Por çdo gjë ishte gënjeshtër pasi ju e shihni që të gjithë janë tani në Shqipëri. Nëse ti shkon tek ajo organizatë me këtë dokument, ti je si i burgosur sepse ti nuk ke asnjë zgjidhje tjetër, asnjë rrugë për t’i lënë.
Si funksionon kjo organizatë?
Ne kemi jetuar të armatosur. Të ndarë në grupe dhe në klasa ku merrnim leksione teorike ideologjike .Ata na mësonin ne se si të ishim më të mirë se qeveria Iraniane
Ju keni një leje drejtimi shqiptare, por nuk keni pasaporte?
Po, por është në proces. Në fillim do marr kartën e identitetit pastaj pasaportën. Kjo organizatë e ka bërë këtë vend për ne si një burg . Asnjë nuk na mbështet ne.
Çfarë bënit ju në praktikë, kush ju urdhëronte të bënit sulme?
Organizata. Ajo krijonte grupe speciale dhe i çonte ato në Iran për të vendosur bomba duke krijuar atake.
Në organizatë kam mësuar gjithçka për armët si dhe për të vrarë njerëzit. Shumë nga këta njerëz qe ju i shihni këtu nuk janë njerëz janë makina lufte.
Intervistë me MANUCER Habdi, i larguar nga MEK
Kur unë isha 42 vjeç u bëra pjesë e kësaj organizate dhe tani unë jam 55 vjeç . Pra kam qenë viktimë e kësaj organizate për 13 vjet rresht. Kur unë jetoja në vendin tim në Iran, kishte shumë probleme dhe situata nuk ishte shumë e mirë si ajo politike ashtu edhe ajo ekonomike. Unë kisha shumë ëndrra lidhur me lirinë e vendit tim ndaj dhe unë u bashkova në këtë organizatë, por më pas unë kuptova se kjo organizatë ishte një gënjeshtër e madhe. Ata na gënjenin, ata janë sekt ,unë nuk mund ta shihja më veten brenda saj.
Çfarë bëjë në kamp, ke mësuar të përdorësh armët, ke bërë stërvitje ushtarake?
Në fillim aty bënim punë të zakonshme ashtu siç bëjnë të gjithë njerëzit. Gjatë atyre viteve Irani kishte shumë probleme sidomos ekonomike. Ajo organizatë kishte shumë lobe dhe simpatizantë në Iran dhe ata i premtonin shumë të rinjve se nëse shkonin në Irak dhe bëheshin pjesë e saj do të përfitonin shumë para
Ishte e vështirë të largoheshe prej saj?
Po ishte shumë e vështirë. Sepse ne nuk kishim lidhje me jetën që bëhej jashtë saj. Nuk dinim asgjë se çfarë ndodhte. Ne nuk kishim as telefon as njohuri për internetin, pra asgjë nuk kishim lidhje as me familjen tonë. Unë erdha këtu më pas me këtë organizatë pasi kishte një marrëveshje midis saj e qeverisë shqiptare dhe qeverisë amerikane . UNHCR më solli mua këtu dhe tani prej 8 muajsh unë jam jashtë saj dhe jetoj vetë.
Pse vendose të largohesh pikërisht kur erdhe këtu?
Sepse kur unë isha në Irak, unë u përpoqa të lidhesha me vajzën time dhe ata nuk më lejuan mua. Kishte shumë familje që erdhën në ASHRAF për të takuar familjarët e tyre por kjo organizatë i detyroi ata të mos i takonin fëmijët e tyre dhe i sulmuan ata njerëz .
Kampi në Shqipëri është njësoj si në Irak ?
Ata po krijojnë diçka të ngjashme
Unë kërkova të shihja vajzën time, por ata kanë bërë një marrëveshje me qeverinë tuaj që të mos lejojnë familjet tona të vijnë të na shohin ne. Pra nëse je pjesë e kësaj organizate ti nuk mund të kesh asnjë lidhje me familjen është e ndaluar për ju.
Këtu disa grupe lidhen me njerëz , me të rinj në Iran nëpërmjet internetit , mediave sociale dhe i mësojnë ata si duhet të luftojnë si të vrasin të tjerët në Iran.
Kur unë isha pjesë e organizatës unë isha pjesë e një grupi që lidhej virtualisht me një grup të rinjsh në Iran dhe i mësonim si të luftonin. Sepse ju duhet ta dini që çdo kush në këtë organizatë di sesi të luftojë të vrasë pra jemi të përgatitur ushtarakisht, dimë gjithçka për armët. Ne mësojmë të rinjtë në Iran nëpërmjetë skype. Unë nuk kam marrë leksione lufte sepse përpara se të isha pjesë e organizatës kam qenë pjesë e ushtrisë iraniane.
Tani ju me çfarë të ardhurash jetoni, nuk keni një status këtu, nuk ju lejohet të punoni ?
Disa miq më ndihmojnë të cilët edhe ata kanë ikur nga kjo organizatë. Shumë prej atyre marrin para nga organizata . Unë jo sepse ata më kanë shpallur spiun të Iranit . Por të tjerët marrin para në bazë të një marrëveshje midis qeverise tuaj dhe organizatës çdokush që ikën nga organizata , kjo e fundit e paguan për të që ai të jetojë në Shqipëri. Marjam Raxhavi liderja e kësaj organizate jeton në Francë dhe shpesh vjen këtu dhe bën takime. Në një nga këto takime ajo ka thënë ata që i janë larguar organizatës në Shqipëri janë tradhtarë dhe duhet që ata t’i vrasim.
Çfarë bëni tani ?
Nuk mund të bëj asgjë , nuk kam pasaportë sepse kjo organizatë nuk e lejon të na i japë qeveria juaj, nuk kam asnjë status. Është tamam si një burg. Prej tre muaj jetoj në një apartament të paguar nga UNHCR. Prandaj erdha këtu të tregoj këtë situatë . Familja nuk mund të më dërgoj para sepse situata e tyre ekonomike e tyre s’është e mirë. Miqtë nuk kanë të më ndihmojnë . Ky nuk është vetëm problemi im. Pasi edhe personat që merrnin para tashmë i ka kontaktuar dhe ju ka thënë që nëse largoheni ju paguajmë tre muaj dhe më pas ju duhet të firmosni një dokument që duhet të na i ktheni paratë sërish dhe se nuk keni më nevojë për para. Ky është problemi i të gjithë të larguarve.
Pse jeni sot në Fiks Fare?
Ju e dini që çdo refugjat politik ka një status në çdo vend të botës, ne nuk e kemi. Ne jemi thjesht rezident që rrimë në Shqipëri pra pa status. Na kanë sjellë të gjithë këtu s’kemi asnjë dokument e as status. Unë kam vuajtur shumë kam qenë viktimë e kësaj organizate, tani që u largova a kam të drejtë unë si qënie njerëzore të jetoj si gjithë të tjerët. Nuk kam mundësi të punoj. Ky është problemi për të gjithë ne.
Mojahedin Khalq (MEK) terrorist training camp in Albania impacts whole Balkan region
Anne Khodabandeh (Singleton), Balkans Post, January 09 2018:… The MEK, led by Maryam Rajavi from France, keeps its members behind closed doors in a state of modern slavery which neither the UNHCR nor the UN-IOM appear able or willing to deal with. Significantly the camp is named ‘Ashraf Three’ after the MEK’s original military base in Iraq, gifted to them by Saddam Hussein to …
Mojahedin Khalq (MEK) terrorist training camp in Albania impacts whole Balkan region
Maryam Rajavi grooms Albanian politicians
Residents of Tirana no doubt welcomed news that members of the terrorist Mojahedin Khalq organisation (MEK) have moved out of the capital to a closed camp in Manëz, Durres a few kilometers from Tirana. Citizens had been disturbed by the bizarre, anti-social behaviour of the group’s members and puzzled by their lifestyle.
However, they might not be so pleased if predictions come into play. That is, the arrival of widows and orphans of killed Daesh fighters to occupy the apartment blocks and university campus recently deserted by the MEK.
There is every possibility this will not happen though. The agreement brokered between Prime Minister Sali Berisha’s government and the Obama Administration in 2013 to bring the MEK there included the establishment of an Institute for De-Radicalisation which would have made sure the 3000 radicalized MEK fighters were rehabilitated safely back into normal society.
This did not happen. There is, therefore, no American funded Institute to de-radicalise incoming Daesh members. Instead, the MEK locked down on its control over its own members and has further managed to groom Albanian politicians, officials and mafia heads into cooperating with and supporting them. This latest move to a new base is part of the MEK’s overall survival strategy – hold on to members and promote the MEK’s brand as instigators of regime change against Iran.The building of a new base was first exposed when investigative journalist Gjergji Thanasi uncovered shipments of cement which were not linked to tax or import documents. Further investigation revealed plans to build a terrorist training camp in the Manëz area. The camp has a small-arms firing range, reinforced concrete armoury, 3.5-meter-high walls with lookout turrets to guard the entrance. The entrance is guarded by MEK personnel. Albanian authorities have no jurisdiction inside the camp. It is a de facto extra-judicial enclave.
The MEK, led by Maryam Rajavi from France, keeps its members behind closed doors in a state of modern slavery which neither the UNHCR nor the UN-IOM appear able or willing to deal with. Significantly the camp is named ‘Ashraf Three’ after the MEK’s original military base in Iraq, gifted to them by Saddam Hussein to help his war effort against Iran (1980-88). The newest camp has also been gifted to the MEK by its backers.
With this backing, the MEK feel secure enough in Albania to have conducted several open acts of violence. Two in Tirana and one in the European Parliament. But it is events in Iran which are a greater cause for concern.
Now that the protests and unrest in Iran have been quelled, some facts are emerging which could have serious repercussions throughout the Balkans region. What began as working-class protests against economic hardship and government corruption were quickly politicised by agitators who introduced violence. Security authorities arrested hundreds of protesters who were alleged to have taken part in this violence. Most have since been released pending further investigation. These investigations will look closely into interference by external forces behind the violence. A state of affairs acknowledgedin a Security Council meeting on Friday 5th January when the isolated Trump Administration was warned by other members against interfering in Iran’s internal affairs.
Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) announced that a number of people involved in the violence had been trained by the terrorist MEK. Iran’s Intelligence service in the western Iranian province of Lorestan also said it had disbanded and arrested four members of a terrorist cell linked to the MEK in Boroujerd city. According to Iran, Intelligence services have uncovered a network of agitators organised from Afghanistan and Arbil in Iraqi Kurdistan. This network had been making preparations for several months and had planned to launch violent actions later in 2018. It appears that the spontaneous working-class protests against high prices and corruption triggered the network to jump on this bandwagon ahead of schedule.
If the plan was to provoke Iran’s security services into a harsh crackdown on the protesters which would be spun in western media as human rights violations, this did not work. Instead the establishment brought out its supporters in massive counter demonstrations. But above all, when the protests turned violent, ordinary people went home. They wanted no part in manufactured regime change.
The discovery of MEK involvement is not surprising. The group has been a favourite tool for anti-Iran regime change pundits for decades when it was based in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. In an interview with Serbian Sputnik, political analyst Aleksandar Paviç warned that “Trump, along with Israel, has a clear plan and this is being activated today by Albania. The CIA and Israeli services are preparing soldiers to send them to war in Iran to overthrow the regime”.
Although the MEK has lobbying offices in nearly every major western capital, there is only one MEK terrorist training camp. It is in Albania – Ashraf Three. The camp may look innocuous and may be far away from civilian eyes. But Albania and thereby the greater Balkan region – a kind of frontline between Russia and America – will pay a high price for hosting this group.
The MEK is not only calling for violent regime change from inside Albania, it is actively training terrorist agents to deploy for this mission. This means that Iran, a Russian ally, now has a direct interest in this region. Albania can now be considered a frontline country in Iran’s fight against terrorism.
At the same time, no wonder that the European Union regards Albania not as a friendly neighbour but as a security risk right on its doorstep. There is no chance whatsoever of Albania joining the European Union while it hosts the MEK terrorist group.
The Gordian Knot of Balkan states which neither the Americans, Russians nor the EU have been able to unpick would be best served if these countries found common cause in ridding this sensitive area of the one group which serves none of their interests. Nobody wants it cut by an Iranian sword.

Fact-Finding Mission to Rescue Separated MEK Unearths Profound Security Issues
Anne Khodabandeh of Iran-Interlink visited Albania twice for a fact-finding mission in November and December. The fact-finding mission was to investigate the situation of separated members of the MEK and to see what needed to be done to help them and others who will be separating in future. Anne was also invited to speak in a workshop about her work as an expert in prevention and de-radicalisation of violent extremism and terrorism. Khodabandeh works as ‘Open Minds’under the UK government’s Prevent Duty programme.
During her humanitarian mission during which she spoke to many separated members about their experiences and difficulties, Khodabandeh also discovered a great deal of disconcerting information in regard to the MEK’s activities in Albania. Some of this information has already been made public through various written pieces and media interviews and television reportsfrom Tirana. This concerns the MEK actively recruiting Albanian youth [also], links with theAlbanian mafia and plans to move the members to an isolated camp.
However, Anne Khodabandeh went on to brief British and American security services about the various security issues which have arisen as a direct result of the MEK’s presence in Albania.
On Tuesday, following a meeting on Monday between the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the EU Parliament on Monday and Ditmir Bushati, Albania’s foreign affairs minister, Khodabandeh was able to brief officials in European Parliament buildings who have direct concern for Albanian affairs. They acknowledged that this information would be helpful in appraising Albania’s efforts to join the European Union.

Warning: MEK moving members to a remote and isolated camp in Albania (aka Mojahedin Khalq Rajavi cult)
Sahar Family Foundation, Tirana, Albania, November 19 2017:… For three days now, the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, Rajavi cult) in Albania has been relocating its members to a remote and isolated camp in Albania which they have called the ‘Ashraf Three’ base after Camp Ashraf, the main MEK garrison in Iraq. The new base is surrounded by high walls and barbed wire to prevent the members from escaping. Since a long time ago …
Warning: MEK moving members to a remote and isolated camp in Albania (aka Mojahedin Khalq Rajavi cult)
For three days now, the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, Rajavi cult) in Albania has been relocating its members to a remote and isolated camp in Albania which they have called the ‘Ashraf Three’ base after Camp Ashraf, the main MEK garrison in Iraq. The new base is surrounded by high walls and barbed wire to prevent the members from escaping.
Since a long time ago the Rajavi cult has been covertly establishing facilities far away from Tirana, or any other town or city, to which it can move its members and separate them from the outside world. The aim is to exert maximum control over them to enable further brainwashing them without interference. A remote and isolated place similar to Camp Ashraf in Iraq is an ideal place for coercive psychological manipulation because it allows the leaders to control the followers both physically and mentally.
At present, the MEK members in Tirana enjoy some limited access to the outside world. This is not tolerable for the cult. The cult leader Maryam Rajavi wants her followers captive all the time. If they have free access to the outside world they will realize they are continually being told lies and they will discover that there is a way out.
The method of controlling the members inside the MEK is mind manipulation which requires an isolated area from which the members cannot escape and gradually people forget about the free world and accept their lives in there.
Cults like the MEK do not allow their members access to uncensored news or information. If they are moved to this new base the situation will be even worse than it was for them in Iraq since they now know a lot more than they did before about the outside world and therefore the internal pressure and suppression will be more severe.
The cult has also forced members to sign documents to swear that they wish to move to the new place willingly and voluntarily and they have no right to leave the place ever. They are told that this is for their own safety and security which is not correct. In this way they are giving away their rights and freedom for the rest of their lives.
The members have also been given promises of excellent facilities and services which are all lies and even if any such privileges existed these do not replace family relations and contact with the outside world which the cult is denying.
For instance, is it not worse that the members will not have access to the internet and will not be able to contact their families? In Rajavi’s world one has to live isolated from the world and only listen to the cult leaders.
Sahar Family Foundation urges all humanitarian activists and organizations around the world to prevent this human catastrophe from happening and rescue these people from being deceived into a lifelong prison.

National Geographic, March 04 2017:… Leading MEK members squirm under the knowing gaze of Michael Ware. Watch the shifty looks and glances as the MEK representatives try to lie about their true intentions. They admit to wanting regime change, but claim to be pacifists. Ware asks ‘Why does a political organization still need to have a para-military organization?’ He then cleverly gets them to …
Associated Press, February 16 2017:… The group at one point successfully infiltrated the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, according to a State Department report. And a series of bombings attributed to the MEK accompanied visits by presidents Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter to Iran, including one to target an American cultural center. In 1973, MEK assailants wearing motorcycle helmets shot dead U.S. Army Lt. …
Iran Interlink, February 15 2017:… The following OpEd by MEK advocate Col. Wes Martin was published first in The Hill, followed by Mojahedin Khalq’s “Iran Probe” and the “NCRI” websites. Iran Interlink has published it here as indication of how hysteria has become the new normal in American published writing. A form of madness appears to have infected US politics and now all and sundry are dancing …
Massoud Khodabandeh, Huffington Post, February 07 2017:… He also signals that his war is not with ISIS but with the country Iran. Donald Trump rose to victory in part on the promise to take on ISIS and defeat the group. Yet ISIS cannot be defeated except by a coalition of forces that includes Iran. The facts on the ground in Syria and Iraq demonstrate unequivocally that ISIS forces in Aleppo and Mosul have been defeated largely due to the involvement
Gazeta Impakt, Albania, Translated by Iran Interlink, January 01 2017:… According to Fatos Klosi, former director of the National Intelligence Service, the American CIA chief has warned Albania that Donald Trump will renounce support for the MEK terrorists and it will be the Albanian Government itself which must deal with internal security and must confront a group trained militarily from the time of Saddam Hussein …
Massoud Khodabandeh, Huffington Post, December 24 2016:… That can only happen if journalists and investigatory bodies (human rights, nuclear experts, war crimes, etc) are able to base their work on facts and not the fake and fictionalised fantasies of stooges like the MEK, which are clearly designed to misinform on these issues. The information laundry cycle is not difficult to follow – the Washington Times takes its report …
Massoud Khodabandeh, Huffington Post, November 12 2016:… In particular, Rudi Giuliani, John Bolton and Newt Gingrich. Putting aside their weak personalities as well as their individual neoconservative agendas, the common thread which links these names together is their decade long support for the Mojahedin Khalq terrorist organisation (also known as Saddam’s Private Army or Rajavi cult). It is certain that …
Iran Interlink, October 30 2016:… Local observers in Tirana are reporting that the Mojahedin Khalq cultic terror group (MEK) is buying and creating several sandwich and kebab shops in the city and is using the MEK members to work in these fast-food businesses. On the surface this may look like a positive move. In an article titled ‘Albania: What would a de-radicalization program for the Mojahedin Khalq involve’, it was …
Anne and Massoud Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, October 16 2016:… In spite of American promises, no de-radicalisation programme is in place to deal with over 2500 members of the Mojahedin Khalq terrorist group who have relocated to Tirana from Iraq. The MEK has a long history of violent and criminal activity. This has not stopped now they are in Tirana. Unless the Albanian government introduces its own programme, it must accept …
Anne and Massoud Khodabandeh, Huffington post (and Top Topic), October 09 2016:… For the local citizens, mystery surrounds their arrival and their lifestyle. Should these secretive and covert neighbours be treated with suspicion or kindness? At a local level, the first thing neighbouring families need to be aware of is that among all MEK members, sexual relations have been banned for over 25 years. This means there are no marriages or children or young people in the organisation. More troubling …
Massoud & Anne Khodabandeh, Huffington Post, July 14 2016:… Whether Rajavi is already dead or now killable is not known – only he can answer this – but he and his whole organisation are certainly now, body and soul, in the capable hands of the Saudi Prince. If he is still alive, Rajavi’s only role is to act as go-between to instruct his wife what she must do on behalf of the Saudis. If he is dead
Massoud Khodabandeh, Huffington Post, July 08 2016:… Clearly this message is not aimed at Iranians. The clamour for regime change in Iran does not emanate from inside the country in spite of its many social, civic and political problems. Who then is Maryam Rajavi’s constituency? Fro
