MEK Families Petition Albanian Embassy in Paris

On the afternoon of Thursday September 10, 2020, a delegation of former members and officials of the Mojahedin-e Khalq (Rajavi Cult, MEK), including Alireza Nasrollahi, Mohammad Razaghi, Ghorbanali Hossein Nejad, Ghafoor Fattahian and a group of ex member in France, joined together in the Albanian Embassy in Paris.

The 11,000 signatures and letters directed at the PM, President, and officials of the Albanian government from the families were presented in a book submitted to officials in the Embassy.

Families are being refused entry visa to Albania by the direct request of leaders of Rajavi Cult. This denial of access to family members is a direct abuse of the UN Human Right Charter as well as International Laws. Families demand a stop to such behaviours which only support Modern Slavery, and demand access to their children and loved ones. Some of the families have not met with their loved ones for decades, as Saddam Hussein would not allow access either when the MEK were based in Iraq.

The officials in the Embassy welcomed the delegation, registering their demand and promised that the message and the documents will be presented to the Presidential Office as well as the PM and other relevant officials in Albania.

We will publish in due course a full report and interviews with the media.

Hoping for the day that the families will be allowed to see their children.

Text of the letter:

To Prime Minister Edi Rama and the Albanian Government – Demanding MEK members basic human rights

Albanian Embassy in Paris

Former members of the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK) and families of MEK members in Albania have gathered in Paris to issue this message, through the Albanian embassy, to Edi Rama and his government.

Four months ago, a petition was signed by over eleven thousand people. The petition asked the Albanian government to let the families of MEK members in Albania have contact with their loved ones.

“For over three decades, the leaders of the MEK have refused to allow the families of these members to have any sort of contact with their loved ones in the MEK camps (in Iraq and in Albania).”

The emergence of the coronavirus pandemic raised the fears of these families about the health and welfare of their loved ones. Many worried they might not be able to have contact with them before it was too late. Elderly parents are desperate for a last, loving conversation with their children.

In spite of this petition and many individual appeals, neither Edi Rama nor any official or authority answered this petition nor addressed the concerns raised in it.

The inference for observers and experts alike is that a foreign terrorist cult, which operates an extra-territorial, extra-judicial camp in your country, is able to impose its will on your country. Otherwise, what objection do you have to allowing relatives to speak with one another. This is a basic human right.

The MEK has a long history of human rights abuses against its own members. The leader Maryam Rajavi presides over a dangerous mind control cult which keeps the members in a state of modern slavery. These members do not have any legal status in your country. They do not have identity documents, residence, work or travel permits. They do not have health insurance and do not receive payment for the work they are obliged to perform for Maryam Rajavi and her benefactors. This state of affairs was exposed by the revelations about the click farm in Manez.

The MEK has a long history of terrorism, violence, murder, crime, money laundry, people trafficking, human rights abuses, deception, duplicity and hypocrisy. Since arriving in Albania, the MEK has shown that it believes it is above the law – a belief bolstered by the lack of state control over the group. MEK appears to be holding the government of Albania to ransom, interfering in the internal affairs and foreign policy of the country with impunity.

With such impunity comes much danger.

The recent scandalous case of Ehsan Bidi – a registered UNHCR political refugee who sought refuge in your country and was issued ten-year residence and work permits – is an example. Bidi was the subject to a conspiracy to have him illegally and forcibly removed from Albania. This came about due to collusion between the criminal MEK, some corrupt security service officials and some corrupt members of parliament. The plot was exposed and thwarted by Bidi’s friends and supporters. But Bidi was right to fear for his life. The suspicious death of Malik Sharai was a reminder to everyone that MEK has killed many of its own members and former members to silence them.

There can be no doubt that those Albanians – lawyers, journalists, academics and others – who helped in this prevent and rescue intervention are true patriots who defended their country’s interests as well as those of a vulnerable individual.

Maryam Rajavi and her followers were expelled from Iraq and have now been expelled from the EU. The assessment of the EU security services is based on fact, not political expediency or corruption. It is difficult to believe therefore that the European Union would welcome the accession of a country which not only hosts such a group but offers it material and political support to continue its nefarious and illegal activities.

In this respect it is clear, Albania must choose – continue supporting the MEK’s criminal and unpatriotic activities or curtail the group so that Albania can be accepted as a member of the EU.

As for the families of MEK members and former members who have exposed and continue to expose the terrible abuses committed by Maryam Rajavi and her gang, we demand that all MEK members:

  • Have their full human rights observed according to the articles of the UN Declaration of Human Rights
  • Are given ID papers, residence, work and travel permits and national insurance benefits
  • Are allowed to freely choose where and how they live and who they associate with

In addition, there has been a blanket ban on issuing visas to families of MEK members – which Saddam also did when MEK were in Iraq. The Interior Ministry of Albania does not have any trace of names of MEK members in your country, yet every Albanian embassy has a list of names of the families who are subject to this ban. The eleven thousand plus signatories to the petition demand that visas are granted to enable families to travel to Albania where they can directly help their loved ones.

We will continue our campaigns and activities as long as these demands are not met.

Families Write to Albanian PM Adviser Endri Fuga

The text of the letter is as follows:

Mr. Endri Fuga, Advisor to the Prime Minister and Director of Communications for the government of the Republic of Albania

Dear Sir,
GreetingsAs you may already know, an ongoing petition titled “Urging the Albanian government to allow the families to contact their loved ones in the MEK camp” has been signed inside and outside Iran to support the families’ right to have contact with their loved ones in the concentration camp of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK) in Albania.

http://chng.it/GCPbBfFPGr

The petition gained 10,000 signatures and was shared 1,500 times after two weeks, news of which was published in the media inside and outside Albania. This of course made the MEK leaders react fiercely, which undoubtedly shows how frightened they are of the presence of the families in Albania.
The MEK is a destructive mind control cult which with Massoud Rajavi, the cult leader, moved to Iraq from Paris in 1986 in cooperation with Iran’s enemy Saddam Hussein and with his help prepared an army to participate in the war against Iran. When the Iraqi dictator was toppled in 2003 the situation of the MEK dramatically changed.

The MEK were disarmed by the US forces, Massoud Rajavi went into hiding and his wife Maryam moved back to Paris. The members were eventually deported to Albania since the Iraqi government found them a national security threat. They were relocated to a remote isolated camp in Albania which is completely ruled by the cult leaders and your Albanian authorities have no control over it.

This is a human rights issue. Elderly mothers and fathers as well as other family members wish to have contact with their loved ones after decades. This is not too much to ask – except for cults which indoctrinate their members and fear family attachments and emotions more than anything.

I would like to request that you respond to the petition and explain to the families how this humanitarian problem can be tackled, and ask that you offer a solution for it. I am anxiously waiting to hear from you.
I wish you and your country every success, particularly your government’s efforts to become a member state of the European Union.

Regards,
Ebrahim Khodabandeh
Nejat Society CEO

The text of the message is as follows:

Mr. Edi Rama
Prime Minister of the Republic of Albania

As you are aware, a petition addressed to your government and the ministry of foreign affairs is ongoing. After 12 days this petition has already gained more than 8000 signatures from all over the world and has been shared over 1000 times.

The Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, Rajavi cult) is an invitee in your country and under your government’s protection. But our innocent children are captives inside this terrorist cult and because of your government’s support, they have no access to the outside world particularly their family and friends.

We the suffering families would like to ask for how long you wish to prolong this situation? For how long do you wish to deprive elderly mothers and fathers from contacting their children? For how long do you wish to preserve intact this security threat for your country as well as Europe against the best interests of your people? For how long do you wish to have no control over the MEK camp and have no information about what is going on inside there? Are you aware about the extent of the spread of Covid-19 disease inside the camp which is a potential threat for your people? For whose interests should our children be captives in the hand of those terrorists?
The petition will be ongoing until we receive a response from you. If you have authority over your country’s executive affairs, it’s not a bad idea for you to go to the link below and react to the demands of the families.

A petition was launched by Nejat Society of Iran on behalf of the suffering families of Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, Rajavi cult) members urging the Albanian government to allow these families to contact their loved ones trapped in the MEK camp. Link below:

http://chng.it/GCPbBfFPGr

This petition concludes:

“We urge the Albanian government and the ministry of foreign affairs to issue visas to the suffering families on humanitarian grounds to allow them to travel to Albania and help them visit their loved ones in the MEK camp.”

Signatures on the petition have well exceeded 1500 after just 9 days and are rapidly increasing. The daily list of signatories and their locations is forwarded to the Albanian authorities.

This has, of course, alarmed the MEK since like all other destructive mind control cults, the leaders are scared to death of the families of the cult’s members. They know that familial emotions will counter their brainwashing practices on the members.

A few days after the campaign was launched, the MEK fearfully reacted on April 23, 2020 in its website ‘Iran Probe’ with a lengthy article titled: “Iranian regime is campaigning for Albanian entry visas for its terrorists”.

The article is a stream of fabricated lies trying to persuade the Albanians not to issue visas for the families.

This shows how much the presence of the families is a nightmare for Massoud and Maryam Rajavi, the cult leaders.

Terrorists Don't Need Albanian Visas ; Petition Signatures reach 6000

MEK terrorist cult was expelled from Iraq and admitted into their country by the Albanian government in 2016 and located in a remote, isolated camp. Security experts have always considered this a security threat for Albania as well as for Europe. The MEK presence has also been regarded a negative point for Albania as it tries to become a member of the EU.

Ebrahim Khodabandeh

Ebrahim Khodabandeh . CEO Nejat Society

The MEK camp, which holds the terrorists imported from Iraq, is entirely and secretly run by the cult’s leaders. Albanian officials have no jurisdiction over it. The inhabitants have no access to, or contact with, the outside world, particularly with their friends and families.

The truth is that the genuine terrorists are already welcomed and living in Albania and they do not need visas.

Those who are denied entry and deprived of contacting their loved ones are old mothers and fathers who have not seen or had any contact with their children for decades.

The Albanian government should pay attention to the just request of the families and enable them to contact their loved ones.

Over 800 MEK Families Petition Albanian PM Edi Rama For Access

Mr. Edi Rama, Prime Minister of the Republic of Albania

I am writing on behalf of hundreds of suffering families of the members of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, Rajavi cult) who have settled in your country. I would like to remind you that the families’ letters to the President’s Office have remained completely unanswered so far.

You are aware that the members of this organization are billeted in a camp in Manëz in Durrës County, western Albania. The camp is completely controlled by the organization’s leader – Albanian officials have no authority over it. The MEK organization is run as a destructive mind control cult which prevents its members from communicating with the outside world, especially with friends and relatives.

One week ago, a petition was created for the families, addressing the Albanian government, and by the time I write this letter to you, more than 800 of them have signed it. Link below:
http://chng.it/GCPbBfFPGr

The text of the petition, which calls on the Albanian government to provide conditions for families to communicate with their loved ones in the MEK camp in Albania, as well as the list of more than 800 signatories to the petition are attached.

Please answer why the Albanian authorities, in cooperation with the Rajavi cult, are preventing families from communicating with their loved ones? Why has the Albanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs ordered all its embassies not to issue visas to Iranians so that families would not be able to travel to your country?

The level of cooperation of the Albanian government – which aspires to join the European Union – with a terrorist cult, is shocking.

I look forward to hearing from you and, of course, I am sending this open letter to international, European and Albanian authorities, as well as to the human rights bodies and the media.

Many thanks, in anticipation, for your kind reply to this letter.
