This week, residents of the town protested that a piece of land which had already been designated for expansion of the cemetery for their community had been sold to the MEK. The cemetery in Manez is already close to capacity so this piece of land was of vital importance to the residents.

As the number of deaths in the MEK camp at Manez in Albania due to COVID-19 continues to rise, the MEK have appropriated a section of the local cemetery to bury their dead. This week, residents of the town protested that a piece of land which had already been designated for expansion of the cemetery for their community had been sold to the MEK. The cemetery in Manez is already close to capacity so this piece of land was of vital importance to the residents. Residents protested that they are already forced to bury two family members in one grave due to lack of space. This is not fair or dignified.

Residents point out that there is land available to the MEK for burials near their camp and that locals are willing to sell that land to them. There is no justification for using land dedicated for expanding the town cemetery. This total disregard for the rights, feelings and needs of others is a horrible characteristic of the MEK.

In Iraq, the MEK graveyard was a tragic mess. When investigators opened graves to locate lost relatives, they found graves where the interned body did not match the name of the headstone, some graves were empty, some graves had a single named headstone but contained two or three bodies. In Paris, a MEK member stole flowers from a local cemetery to adorn Maryam Rajavi’s camp. It should come as no surprise to those familiar with the MEK. The cult leaders regard the dead as commodities to be exploited.

After arriving in Albania, the MEK used the cemetery in Tirana for some members. But after building their extrajudicial, extraterritorial camp in Manez, the MEK buried one of their dead in the local cemetery without permission. The residents were outraged, pointing out that they barely had enough space to bury their own families. They were angered that a foreign group could do this. The MEK was made to exhume the body and intern it elsewhere. Residents complain that recent burials have caused disruption as the MEK block roads for hours for their processions, disregarding local needs and rights.

The MEK response to such sensitive issues has always been to lie and obfuscate, ultimately blaming the innocent victims of their crimes and misdemeanours. In this recent case, the MEK accused the residents – whom they condescendingly referred to as ‘peasants’ – of being organised by “elements working for the Iranian regime”. MEK issued a press release saying, ‘This is a false accusation, and this small rally was provoked and organized by some elements working for the Iranian regime’. Surely the residents of Manez would be amazed and angered by claims that they are a “security threat” to the MEK members there. The fact is, the MEK poses a severe security and health threat to the residents themselves.

This kind of gaslighting and misdirection practiced by the MEK is not new. It is their modus operandi; to deflect investigation, criticism, and prosecution. But this reaction over such a sensitive issue as a cemetery only shows there is no bottom to the depths the MEK will go.

They analyze the transformation of MEK from an asylum seeking group to a potential terrorist monster in Albania, its illegal activities and the shameful support that the Albanian government gives to them while it jails and persecutes Albanian Muslims for any simple insult that they make against Israel on their Facebook postings. The discussion tries to understand future scenarios and false flag terrorist attacks that MEK might do in the future in order to help Trump administration and Israel to produce a war with Iran. They analyze the possible changes that the Joe Biden administration will bring to the USA policies towards Iran and towards the jihadi activities of MEK from Albania – if #MEK and Israel do not do any surprise against the American democracy in the coming weeks. Examples are given how MEK has created fake terrorist news against Iran from Albania and how the MEK military command might do a false flag terrorist attack in Albania or Europe if they will be asked to by their sponsors.

Covid-19 In MEK Camp – Needs Urgent Intervention

Albanians shocked at MEK disregard for their dead 

Honourable Director of Albania’s Immigration Office

We would like to inform you that we, a group of former members of the MEK Organization, are concerned about the situation of our former friends who are currently members of the MEK.

During the outbreak of COVID-19, the organization keeps its members in a closed area, which makes the conditions more dangerous for the spread of this disease among people.

You are aware that this organization has closed relations, a has all the characteristics of a mind control cult.

The people who live in this cult collective do not have access to the free world and medical centres. This raises our concerns about the health and wellbeing of the people living in the Manez camp.

In the current situation, with the threat of COVID-19, the lives of these people are in danger. Unfortunately, this organization does not care about the lives of these people.

Due to the dangerous conditions inside the camp and the irresponsible behaviour of the cult leaders towards the lives of the members, we issue this warning, and we call for the prompt intervention of the relevant authorities of your country and Albanian human rights organizations to take control in order to save the lives of these people.

Respectfully:  A group of former MEK members

COVID Infects MEK Camp Ashraf 3 – Iran Interlink Weekly Digest – Dec 11, 2020

COVID Infects MEK Camp Ashraf 3 Iran Interlink, December 11 2020:… From the start of the pandemic, the MEK have refused to allow local health officials into the camp to help; there are no licenced medical staff in the camp. It is unclear how the virus was introduced into the camp, but leading members have used their Laissez-passer documents to move around Albania without hindrance, crossing road blocks with impunity. This week two of the MEK’s Albanian lawyers failed to attend court in a libel case against Behzad Saffari, brought by journalist Gjergji Thanasi, saying they have contracted COVID-19.

COVID Infects MEK Camp Ashraf 3 – Iran Interlink Weekly Digest – Dec 11, 2020

COVID Infects MEK Camp Ashraf 3 - Iran Interlink Weekly Digest++ The trial of Asadollah Assadi is underway in Brussels. The Austrian based Iranian diplomat was arrested in Germany and accused of passing a bomb to an Iranian couple who planned to attack an MEK rally in Paris in 2018. During the trial the MEK have tried their utmost to make themselves relevant. MEK representatives were not allowed inside the court room. Instead, they sent three high level, highly paid lawyers from France alongside Farzin Hashemi as Maryam Rajavi’s representative to stand outside court and give interviews etc. On the back of this the MEK placed paid articles in French and Belgian media. Maryam Rajavi, of course, is not allowed in the European Union. The MEK’s desperate efforts to make the trial about them has exposed their real role in the plot. The more they put themselves forward, the more it shows as a false flag operation. The sponsors of the plot did their job in 2018 to meddle in relations between Iran and Europe to prevent rapprochement. The MEK were paid at the time but are apparently now trying to get more out of this, even though their actions are against the interests of Israel. This is being done while the MEK were obviously involved in the assassination of Iran’s nuclear expert Dr Fakhrizadeh as the Farsi speaking part of the equation. This puts Albania in a difficult position as hosts to the MEK.

++ This week marks the Day of Students in Iran. This goes back to the time of the Shah when on the 16th Azar, the Shah’s troops killed three students during an anti-Shah, anti-imperialist demonstration. Today the MEK – famously anti-imperialist at that time – are still trying to celebrate the Day of Students and its anti-American martyrs, completely oblivious to the contradiction with their newly pro-American position. Commentators point out the irony. The MEK are now pro-American but can’t give up the past. They can’t let go of either position to the point that Maryam Rajavi presented the MEK’s book of anti-imperialist martyrs to Senator John McCain. It couldn’t get more ridiculous than this.

In English:

++ Reports reveal that ten MEK members have died of COVID-19 in Albania since the first week of November. This indicates an outbreak of the coronavirus in Camp Ashraf 3. In 2016, as they were given refuge on humanitarian grounds, the Albanian government gave assurances that the MEK would receive full medical care. Since then, the MEK leaders have imprisoned the members in the closed camp and do not allow Albanian authorities to enter. From the start of the pandemic, the MEK have refused to allow local health officials into the camp to help; there are no licenced medical staff in the camp. It is unclear how the virus was introduced into the camp, but leading members have used their Laissez-passer documents to move around Albania without hindrance, crossing road blocks with impunity. This week two of the MEK’s Albanian lawyers failed to attend court in a libel case against Behzad Saffari, brought by journalist Gjergji Thanasi, saying they have contracted COVID-19. This could be coincidental, but it has also been reported that the defendant Behzad Safari has also gone missing and has not been seen recently. Whether the virus could have been transmitted either way, from lawyers to the camp or the camp to the lawyers, it is clear from the number of deaths in Camp Ashraf 3 that there are many others suffering the illness.

++ After being ousted from Iraq and now the EU, the MEK could hope that they are safe in Albania. However, as the presidency of the US shifts in the next weeks, questions are being asked as to what the new Biden administration’s foreign policy will be and how this might affect the MEK. In an interview with Jacobin Magazine, Daniel Benaim – senior fellow at American Progress, researcher for US policy in the Middle East and visiting lecturer at New York University – gave his analysis of the pivotal topics of Biden’s foreign policy. In regard to the JCPOA, Benaim said, “My friends and I are of the view that a reduction in US support for MEK could be absorbing to Tehran. Albanian officials in bilateral meetings have expressed their concerns over the group’s illegal activities in human, drug, and arms trafficking. The Settlement of MEK in Albania and the coast of Adriatic Sea, along the European border is not necessary for a long period of time, and the group’s relocation to Ethiopia or Red Sea coasts such as Eritrea should be considered.” This raised two opposing views among observers. One view says ‘good riddance’ from Europe and let Saudi Arabia and the UAE use them in the conflict with Yemen. The other view comes from the families of enslaved, disappeared MEK members who would be further out of reach and again put in danger of death in a conflict not of their choosing.
