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

Posted on: 2020/04/30

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Nejat Society, April 30 2020:… 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 

Over 800 MEK Families Petition Albanian PM Edi Rama For Access

Posted on: 2020/04/27

Nejat Society, Tehran, April 27 2020:… 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.

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, March 10 2020:… MEK, an extreme example The notorious camp of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, Rajavi Cult) in Manez in Albania is a very clear and extreme case of holding modern slaves. These individuals have been subject to mind manipulation and brainwashing over many years in Iraq and now in Albania and they are forced to commit crimes such as terrorism, human trafficking, money laundry, fraud, robbery and forging documents. The MEK operates as a destructive, mind control cult. The organization forbids love, familial relationships, voluntary exit, and contact with the outside world, in particular with friends and families, enjoying privacy of thoughts and an individual lifestyle, criticism of the leader, and denies many other basic human rights to its members.

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, March 08 2020:… In a similar way, leading members of the Iranian Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, Rajavi Cult) which is based in Albania, make frequent visits to Italy, which has the largest cluster of infections after China, South Korea and Iran. Although the members live in a secretive closed camp named Camp Ashraf 3, some socialise with the Albanian community around them while shopping or visiting officials. The cult’s leaders occupy an entire floor of the International hotel in the middle of the capital Tirana. MEK Hinders Coronavirus Detection In Albania

Iranian Nejat Society CEO appeals to awakened human consciences

Posted on: 2020/03/01

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Nejat Society, Tehran, March 01 2020:… I address you on behalf of thousands of suffering families of members of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, better known as the Rajavi cult) residing in a remote isolated camp in Albania, about the severe abuses of basic human rights there. The MEK finished the process of transferring from Iraq to Albania in 2016. This relocation was done in the manner of a group movement under an agreement made in Geneva between the USA, the Albanian government, the UNHCR and the MEK. It was agreed that the UNHCR be responsible for the transfer and the USA pay the expenses. Iranian Nejat Society CEO appeals to awakened human consciences 

Where is Albania heading to?

Posted on: 2020/02/13

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, February 13 2020:… The Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, NCRI, NLA, or better known as the Rajavi cult) had a military base in Iraq facilitated by Saddam Hussein and they actively participated against their own county alongside the enemy in the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war. This was alongside a terrorist campaign waged inside Iran in the early 80s which claimed 12,000 lives. They also joined with Saddam’s army to suppress the 1991 uprisings in the north and south of Iraq. The cult has also a disturbing record of abusing the human rights of its own members who are brainwashed and isolated in a closed camp, first in Iraq and now in Albania. Where is Albania heading to? 

Maryam Rajavi mirrors Chalabi

Posted on: 2019/10/10

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, October 10 2019:… Now the Iranian Maryam Rajavi, leader of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, NCR, NLA, Rajavi Cult) is playing (and has played for a long time) the same role as the Iraqi Ahmad Chalabi, this time in relation to Iran. On Monday September 30, 2019 in Washington, the group, which has close ties with the warmongers of the White House, announced baseless details blaming the missile drone attack against Saudi oil facilities on Iran. Without any evidence, the MEK claimed that the decision for the attack was taken by the Supreme National Security Council, presided over by President Rouhani and with the presence of Foreign Minister Zarif.

How has the MEK – Rajavi cult – resisted disintegration

Posted on: 2019/08/27

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, August 27 2019:… The Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, NCR, NLA, Rajavi Cult), an armed opposition to the Islamic Republic of Iran, faced dramatic changes after Iraq was invaded by US forces in 2003, and Saddam Hussein, the only state sponsor of the leader Massoud Rajavi, was toppled. John Bolton, who served as the US government representative to the UN at the time, was the key lobbyist for the MEK. He was and is a regular paid attendee of Maryam Rajavi’s annual meetings. Several others, like Bolton, also desire to intensify conflict with Iran for the political and economic benefit of an elite rather than in the national interests of the US.

White House crumbling under the weight of Bolton’s ambitions

Posted on: 2019/05/24

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, May 24 2019:… Bolton believes that Massoud (or Maryam) Rajavi of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, Rajavi cult), just like Ahmed Chalabi during the war against Iraq, can be beneficial in creating excuses and repeating the White House’s wishes under the banner of a so-called opposition group. The Rajavi terrorist cult has always been ready to offer its treacherous services to any bidder. And Bolton, after Saddam Hussein, is eager to use them.
