American Special Advisor, Daniel Fried: Take a look at RAND and HRW reports on Mojahedin Khalq, MKO, MEK, Rajavi cult

… QUESTION: Well, I mean, like the North Koreans, are they running around kidnapping people and bringing them to Camp Ashraf? How do you get there involuntarily? How would one get there? AMBASSADOR FRIED: There – well, let me refer you to some of the outside studies that have been written – the Rand Corporation report, for one. Take a look at that, or Human Rights Watch. They’ve described what they think are some of the problems. The MEK denies it. Right now, our concern is humanitarian and getting the people out of Ashraf over to Liberty, and then we’ll deal with the next set of really tough problems, which is repatriation/resettlement of these folks …

Ambassador Daniel Fried on MEK Mujahedin e Khalq Special Briefing
Ambassador Daniel Fried, Special Advisor for Camp Ashraf

Washington, DC, December 29, 2011

MR. VENTRELL: Okay. So we’ll go ahead and get started. Everybody, this is Ambassador Fried. This session is on the record, unless otherwise indicated. We do have the director of our Iraq office here to go into some further detail if necessary. But as we start, this is all on the record, unless otherwise indicated.

So Ambassador Fried, please go ahead.

AMBASSADOR FRIED: I’ll start out with some prepared remarks and then take your questions if that’s all right. Oh, and forgive me if I speak a little slowly. This is the result of Novocain and the dentist this morning.

The U.S. seeks a safe, secure, humane resolution of the impasse at Camp Ashraf. Our interest is humanitarian and independent of our views of the MEK’s past record. Thanks to intense efforts by Ambassador Martin Kobler, the head of the UN Mission in Iraq, a reasonable path forward for a safe and secure relocation from Ashraf to Camp Liberty is at hand. On Christmas Day, Kobler signed with the Government of Iraq an MOU that provides details of the transfer and commitments from the Iraqi Government for the safety and security of the residents of Camp Ashraf.

The residents of Camp Ashraf will be moved from Camp Ashraf to former Camp Liberty, which used to be a U.S. military facility and is located near the Baghdad Airport. UNHCR is – will begin immediately to process these people for refugee status. At the same time, those wishing to return voluntarily to Iran as, by the way, several hundred from Ashraf have already done, will be able to do so.

The UN will conduct 24/7 monitoring at Camp Liberty – or former Camp Liberty. In addition, Embassy Baghdad will visit former Camp Liberty on a frequent basis to provide robust observation. The Government of Iraq has agreed in this MOU to the safety and security of Camp Liberty and those there and not to forcibly repatriate any resident of Camp Ashraf/former Camp Liberty to Iran. The Government of Iraq accepted many of Ambassador Kobler’s suggestions, and the plan agreed now reflects major progress since the discussions began. Secretary Clinton, the EU, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon have all publicly welcomed the signing of the MOU and have urged that it be implemented in good faith by all sides.

This is Iraq we’re talking about, however. We must be realistic about the difficulties. We’re also acutely aware of the mistrust and even animosity between the MEK and many Iraqis, given the MEK’s history in Iraq. We’re concerned by the recent series of rocket attacks on Ashraf and we condemn them. While these have not caused injuries or damaged property, they heighten and underscore the risks in this situation. U.S. facilities in the area have also been under attack recently.

The UN has expressed its concerns about these attacks to the Iraqi Government. We are doing so as well. Nevertheless and for – perhaps especially because of these attacks, it’s important to move ahead with the MOU. We welcome the willingness expressed yesterday by the MEK to cooperate with implementation of the MOU, specifically their announcement that they are prepared to move the first 400 persons to Camp – to former Camp Liberty. That move is being prepared now.

The UN is putting its assets in place for monitoring and refugee processing. It’s up to the Iraqi Government to prepare Camp Liberty, to receive the first residents of Ashraf, and this is likely to take several more days at least. It’s important that this first move be followed by other moves from Ashraf to former Camp Liberty. Ashraf is relatively isolated and, frankly, less secure than Liberty will be with its UN monitoring and a frequent U.S. presence. We also hope the day-to-day issues of camp management can be worked out on the ground as, hopefully, confidence grows.

The good news is that we are finally entering a phase of implementing an agreement that’s been painfully negotiated and is understood by all sides. But implementation will take sustained cooperation and patience by all. The U.S. will remain closely engaged in all stages of this process.

So with that, let me take your questions.

QUESTION: So how many people in all are we talking about moving? You said a few hundred have gone back to Iran.

AMBASSADOR FRIED: The MEK says there are about 3,200 people at Camp Ashraf. Years ago, when the – in the early phases of the Iraq conflict, we identified about that number of people, but we don’t know how many people are there now. We don’t know how many have left.

QUESTION: Okay. But several hundred, you said, have gone back to Iran?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: We – yes. We believe several hundred have gone back to Iran voluntarily over the years, not recently. Recently, a number of people at Camp Ashraf have gone back to European countries where they have either citizenship or long-term residency. This has been relatively small in numbers, but it’s picked up in recent weeks.

QUESTION: And do you get the sense that some of these people that will be moving over to Liberty are going to want to move on further or that could be their —

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Well, they all want to move out of Iraq. That seems to be – well, let me back up by saying we don’t know actually what the residents of Camp Ashraf want. We know what their leaders say they want. And what they say they want is for them to leave Iraq in safety and security. There is some number – and estimates vary very widely – of how many will actually want to go back to Iran.

Our view is that if residents of Camp Ashraf want to go back to Iran, this is their right, but it has to be really voluntary and not, quote, “voluntary.” That’s why I mention that some hundreds have gone back already. According to international organizations, there is no evidence that they have been mistreated by the Iranians, but we can’t verify that independently for ourselves.

QUESTION: Have they – have the Camp Ashraf group – have they given you any sort of timeline that – you said the first 400 are going to be ready to move. When do you expect them actually to move? When is the camp going to be able to accept them? And do you have a sense that there’s going to be a clear follow-on from that, that they’re going to keep on moving more and more people? Or is this first 400 sort of a test group?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: In the last 48 hours, we have been heartened by the increased willingness of the leaders of Camp Ashraf and the MEK leadership in Paris to participate in this process. We believe that the first 400 are ready to move soon. The – as I said, former Camp Liberty has to be set up, the infrastructure has to be put in place, and this will – it’ll take, we think, at least several days for this to be done. But under the circumstances, we think that the 400 should move as soon as possible, and this should be followed up by more moves.

There are issues of how the new facility will run. Some of these issues were addressed in the MOU. But in reality, they can be worked out on the ground. It’s important now that people start leaving Camp Ashraf, which is really not a secure place, and move to a place where they can be processed by the UNHCR. So we very much hope that as many people will move out as fast as can be accommodated. The first 400 is a good start; it needs to be followed up.

QUESTION: Well, just on the resettlement issue. I understand in the past there was some demands on the part of the Camp Ashraf or MEK that they be done in groups, that they want (inaudible) all go together. What can you – just walk us through what the current understanding is of how and where they might go?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: You are correct that the MEK in the past made many demands, and it wasn’t until recent weeks that it started working with Ambassador Kobler in a serious way. We are very glad that they decided to do so. Late is far better than never, and it’s never too late to do the right thing. So they have done the right thing by working with Ambassador Kobler.

Specific to your question, the UNHCR does not do group refugee designations. They’ve made it clear that they are prepared look at them as individuals and to begin immediately to process them. We’ve also encouraged the people at Camp Ashraf to send in this – in the early group, in the group of 400 and other early groups, those with the strongest ties to the outside world – that is citizens of European countries, citizens of the United States, if there are more still there. We know of only two left there, but we – there could be more. If they send out those with the strongest ties, those will be the easiest to move out of Iraq. And it’s important to show the Iraqi Government and Iraqis and the people of Camp Ashraf this process can work all the way, meaning from Ashraf to former Camp Liberty and out of Iraq safely.

QUESTION: But isn’t there some risk in that, that if you’re starting with the easiest cases then the hard cases are just going to sit there, right?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Well, the hard cases aren’t going to get any easier with – easier if you move them up front. Move – our view is move those who can most easily move. There are – in terms of numbers, there are a lot of unknowns. But if you start with a topline of 3,200 people, there is – you have to subtract the number of people who may have left. We don’t have it accounted for, so it’s 32 minus X. Then it is minus those will really want to go back to Iran, and there’ll be arrangements in place for them to do so. Then you take away the number of people with citizenship or strong compelling ties to foreign countries. Then you – what you have left is the group which will be interviewed individually for refugee status by the UNHCR. So hopefully those groups subtracted from the topline number will be as big as possible, but we just don’t know.

QUESTION: Is there a risk that you’re just moving – even if it’s Liberty as a more secure place, you’re just moving the problem a few miles?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Well, there is no way that Ashraf was going to be the venue for the UNHCR interviews. And for reasons having to do with history and the history of the MEK in Iraq, there was no way that the Government of Iraq was going to allow a Camp Ashraf to exist as it was. So for those reasons, this move is critical to start the process in earnest.

QUESTION: Why do you think the MEK has changed its tune? Have you offered them anything? Like, will it be easier for them to get off the terrorism list if they cooperate?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: We have not offered them anything, but it is, I think – and I can’t read their minds, but I think that it became very clear that the United States was (A) concerned with their welfare and willing to put substantial efforts into this process, and (B) quite serious that we could do nothing if they were going to stand pat with maximalist, unachievable positions.

So I think they realized that they had a reasonable offer made by one of the strongest UN officials I’ve ever worked with, Ambassador Kobler. They had the full engagement of the U.S. Embassy in Ambassador Jeffrey. They had the strong interest of Secretary Clinton and other senior people in the U.S. Government. And I think they realized that now was the time to deal seriously.

QUESTION: Does the designation affect their migration status at all, their eligibility to go to any other country, let alone the U.S.?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: One of the enduring urban legends of this process is that the MEK’s current status as a foreign terrorist organization, so listed by the American Government, is in itself a great impediment to resettlement and that removing them from that list would suddenly make many more eligible that are not now eligible. That apparently, as it has been explained to me by those very familiar with American immigration laws, is not true.

The FTO designation process is quite independent from my office and what we’re doing. I haven’t participated in this, in the paperwork. We will – the United States will look at people at Camp Ashraf or future Camp – those who will be at former Camp Liberty on a case-by-case basis. The status of the MEK as a foreign terrorist organization is not, by itself, disqualifying to any particular individual. And removal of the MEK from that list, if it were to happen in the future, would not necessarily make eligible someone who is now statutorily ineligible.

QUESTION: So you can be a member of a foreign terrorist organization and not an American citizen and be given political refugee status in the United States?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: That isn’t what I said.

QUESTION: Right. But I’m asking —

AMBASSADOR FRIED: What I said was it is not – we are going to look at these people on an individual basis. They may have arrived at Camp Ashraf under all sorts of circumstances.

QUESTION: Okay.

AMBASSADOR FRIED: The reason I’m hesitating and being very careful is because interpretation of our immigration laws is not my business at all, and the Department of Homeland Security has, let’s say, a very great deal to say on this subject. But I’ve – in my conversations with them, it’s clear that they’re prepared to look at individuals, but against, obviously, our immigration laws.

QUESTION: Okay.

QUESTION: They’re going to look at an individual and then say, “No,” right?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: I’m not going to pre-judge how they look at individuals. I will say that people may have found themselves in Ashraf on a variety of circumstances.

QUESTION: Unwillingly, perhaps?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: I don’t want to characterize it that way or any way, but just say what I said.

QUESTION: Okay. Now the UNHCR – I understand when they do their interviews, they have to be private. So they won’t have like a MEK superior watching over them and hearing what they say. But this determination of which ones want to return to Iran – is that done somehow through a private interview process? Because then otherwise you might get the groupthink and the “don’t say you want to go back to Iran” and the numbers would be far smaller than you’d expect maybe.

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Without getting into the details of how individuals will be processed by international organizations, it’s not the U.S. doing it on the ground, I should point out. I would say that the UN and other international organizations are very well aware of the potential problem of, as you said, groupthink or group pressure, and they’re very well aware of the many reports about the atmosphere at Camp Ashraf and the character of that place. And I really shouldn’t say any more than that, but —

QUESTION: So they would be doing it, and – UN and international organizations would handle all of the —

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Well, it’s —

QUESTION: Even the part related to the Iran question, not —

AMBASSADOR FRIED: It’s not the United States doing it.

QUESTION: No, I understand, but —

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Everyone is aware of the problem you identified. I should say also that the MOU does contain an Iraqi commitment not to forcibly repatriate anyone to Iran.

QUESTION: Dan, have you seen these latest statements from the MEK in Paris? There was one this morning that says that they have information that the IRGC is going to launch some new rocket attacks tonight. Whether you’ve seen it or not, the other thing they say is that they’re asking for U.S. and UN monitors at the – at Camp Ashraf until it’s been emptied. Is that something from – at least from the U.S. side, is that something that you guys would be willing to consider, sending people to observe?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: The UN has said that it will monitor the former Camp Liberty. Not Ashraf; that’s not your question. But they’ll be at Camp Liberty on a 24/7 basis. The United States is prepared to mount a very robust monitoring – or I should say observation – a robust observation operation at the former Camp Liberty. It’s not practical, for a number of logistic and security arrangements, for us to be out with anything like that intensity at Camp Ashraf, which is one of the reasons people need to think seriously about moving fast.

QUESTION: Why? Why is it not practical?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Well, it’s a lot farther away, for one thing.

QUESTION: Right.

AMBASSADOR FRIED: And the move – it is harder to move people back and forth. I don’t want to say much more because that involves the logistics of these kinds of things, but we’re going to be at Camp Liberty a lot – at former Camp Liberty a lot more than we are at Ashraf.

QUESTION: Wait, who – I mean, so in other words, you’re not – that’s not in the cards, this latest request for —

AMBASSADOR FRIED: That’s not in the cards. That’s not – that’s right. That’s not in the cards.

QUESTION: And who runs Liberty now? Is it the Iraqi army or —

AMBASSADOR FRIED: It’s an Iraqi – that’s right. We turned over Camp Liberty to the Iraqi military. They’re there. There have been some – a lot of discussions about the security arrangements in future Camp Liberty, and Ambassador Kobler has had these in some detail with his – with his Iraqi counterparts. It will be an Iraqi facility. It’s not going to be a kind of independent, self-governed, autonomous, extraterritorial facility, which is what Camp Ashraf has been for many years.

And the – Ambassador Kobler has had extensive and detailed discussions with both the people at Camp Ashraf – well, the leaders at Camp Ashraf and with – and in Paris. So the MEK knows very well what he is – what the circumstances will be and what the arrangements are.

QUESTION: Are these two Americans who remain?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: We know of two American citizens that are still at Camp Ashraf.

QUESTION: Are they high-level or more of the —

AMBASSADOR FRIED: I – because of – because they are American citizens, Privacy Policy and Act means I can’t talk more about it.

QUESTION: Okay. If they were to return, would they face possible prosecution?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: I can’t talk about any of that. Now there are some at Camp Ashraf – some of the leaders say there are more American citizens there, that there are more permanent residents. We know of just two that remain.

QUESTION: Okay.

QUESTION: Have others come here?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Yes. Recently, two have come here from – American citizens have come here from Camp Ashraf. And the – I think I can say that the Iraqi Government facilitated that, and it was – when they finally left, it was very smooth.

QUESTION: Are these Iranian-Americans or Americans of Iranian descent?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: I believe they are, but I’m not sure.

QUESTION: As far as you know, there isn’t anyone who’s a non-Iranian in Camp Ashraf, are – I’m just curious. You said there are – some people might have gotten there by very – in different ways.

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Different means, that’s right.

QUESTION: Can you —

AMBASSADOR FRIED: I just don’t know. I don’t think so. I have not heard reports. But I’m not trying to prove a negative. I don’t think so, but I don’t know.

QUESTION: And when you talk about it, can you just say, I mean, just for example, what kind of means would one have gotten there other than voluntarily going in?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Sorry?

QUESTION: Well, I mean, like the North Koreans, are they running around kidnapping people and bringing them to Camp Ashraf? How do you get there involuntarily? How would one get there?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: There – well, let me refer you to some of the outside studies that have been written – the Rand Corporation report, for one. Take a look at that, or Human Rights Watch. They’ve described what they think are some of the problems. The MEK denies it. Right now, our concern is humanitarian and getting the people out of Ashraf over to Liberty, and then we’ll deal with the next set of really tough problems, which is repatriation/resettlement of these folks.

QUESTION: Some of those other reports that you mentioned have also discussed potential threats to the residents of Camp Ashraf may be internal rather than external. Without going into what your assessment is of where the threats are, is it the U.S. Government sort of understanding or feeling now that the immediate threats that they may have been facing to life and limb in the camp have decreased significantly? Are they not as at-risk as they were prior to this MOU being signed?

AMBASSADOR FRIED: Well, certainly the developments of the – the good developments of the past several days – that is, the signing of the MOU and the MEK’s expressed willingness to work with Ambassador Kobler on the basis of the MOU and move 400 people out – have the effect of lowering the temperature and putting us on an implementation track rather than a negotiation and imminent disaster track.

Now that’s better, right? That’s a better place to be, but implementation is not easy. It’s fraught with the problems we can imagine and probably some we can’t. So no one who’s working on this issue is putting their feet up and saying, well, job is now done, we can just – it’s just on autopilot. Far from it. It will take a lot of work, a lot of work.

QUESTION: Thanks.

QUESTION: Thank you.

Did Mehdi Abrishamtchi and Maryam Rajavi smuggle Hadi Sani Khani to France for false flag operation?

Olsi Jazexhi

Dr. Olsi Jazexhi and Gjergji Thanasi comment the latest scandal of the Mujahedin-e Khalq ex-Terrorist Organization, MEK, MKO, Rajavi Cult in Albania. In the past weeks the Mojahedin are believed to have trafficked into France an Iranian ex-terrorist foreign fighter, Hadi Sani Khani. After his landing into France and with the support of MEK, Hadi has signed a letter which was published by the ex-terrorist commander of MEK Mehdi Abrishamtchi who now heads the Peace Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran. In this letter Hadi whose name has been placed in the letter ‘exposes’ the ‘Demonization Campaign, Espionage, Terrorist Plots by the Iranian Regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Embassy in Albania’.
This letter which has the hallmarks of the Mojahedin command seem similar to the forced confessions that jihadi captives in Syria, Libya, Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries are forced to read and sign by al-Qaeda, ISIS and Jahbat al-Nusra terrorist organizatons. Olsi and Gjergji analyse the smuggling operation that MEK has carried from Albania into France. They question the role that #MaryamRajavi#NCRI and Mahdi Abrichamtchi has played in this smuggling operation. The Mojahedin have breached the security network of Albania, Greece and France. Together with Hadi they might have also smuggled weapons in Europe.

In a time when the United State and the European Powers are trying to re-enact the Iran Nuclear Deal, MEK is doing all it can to sabotage it. Olsi and Gjergji fear that Hadi Sani Khani might be used to carry a false flag terrorist attack in order to sabotage the American and European diplomatic efforts with #Iran for the #IranNuclearDeal.
Hadi whereabouts are not know since many days. He has gone offline after the publication of the letter on his behalf by Mehdi Abrichamtchi. His security is at risk. Olsi and Gjergji appeal to Hadi to surrender himself to French police and escape from the safe houses of MEK in France. MEK has a long precedence of false flag operations and assassination of its opponents. Below is the response that Olsi and Gjergji have sent to many international personalities about the fake letter that Mehdi Ambrishamchi has issued in the name of Hadi Sani-Khani https://olsijazexhi.wordpress.com/202…

Hadi Sani Khani MEK Member Missing From AlbaniaDr. Olsi Jazexhi, February 20 2021:… start an urgent investigation into the case of Hadi Sani Khani. They must investigate how was Hadi illegally smuggled outside of Albania. What was the role of Mehdi Ambrishamchi in his illegal cross border escape from Albania? What money was paid to Hadi to sign a fake letter against his friends and journalists like us and what promises did the Mojaheden command made to him for this letter? Did the Mojaheden command smuggle weapons into France together with Hadi Sani Khani? Is the Mojaheden command planning a false flag operation in France through Hadi Sani Khani in order to sabotage The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (Iran Nuclear Deal)? Hadi Sani Khani MEK Member Missing From Albania 

Hadi Sani Khani MEK Member Missing From Albania

Back in October last year, Albanian journalist Gjergji Thanasi interviewed former MEK member Hadi Sani Khani in Tirana. Khani had left the MEK three years previously and had tried to make a life for himself. But, as with all former MEK members, he was denied ID papers and a work permit. To make ends meet he worked 14 hours a day cash-in-hand as a waiter in a café. When MEK labelled him an agent of the mullah’s regime, Khani scoffed at this, saying that if he was a spy why would he work in the café and for such long hours. But Khani was struggling. So, it is no surprise that he has now turned up in France in the clutches of the MEK. In a series of posts the MEK report that Khani has confessed to having been a paid agent of Iran’s ministry of intelligence whilst in Albania.

A response to the letter that Mehdi Ambrishamchi directed to UN Secretary-General the Honorable António Guterres on behalf of Hadi Sani Khani

Posted on  by olsijazexhi

The Honorable António Guterres,

United Nations Secretary-General

The United Nations

New York, NY 10017

Your Excellency, Mr. Guterres

On February 14, 2021 the ex-terrorist organization of the Iranian Mojahedeen (also known as the National Council of Resistance of Iran, The Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization, MEK, MKO, Rajavi Cult etc) published a letter on its website signed by Hadi Sani-Khani an Iranian mujahedeen who in the past days has been smuggled into France by the mojaheden command. The letter was distributed and published by a section of MEK in Albania known as the Security and Counterterrorism Committee (SCC), chaired by the infamous ex-terrorist commander Mehdi Ambrishamchi. The original letter dated on February 17, 2021 mentioned the name of Mr. Mehdi Ambrishamchi as the chairman of SCC. However on February 18, 2021 the name of Mehdi Ambrishamchi was removed from the mujahedeen website, probably after a pan-European investigation has been launched by a group of European journalists and security experts who want to discover how did MEK manage to smuggle from Albania into France an ex-terrorist and foreign fighter like Hadi Sani Khani.

France has bad experience with smugglers from Albania. The Nice terror attack of July 14th, 2016 was made possible thanks to three Albanian citizens: Artan Henaj, Myslym Cenaj and Enkelejda Zace. They smuggled weapons and ammunition through the Albanian port of Durres to the Italian port of Bari and then through the Ventimiglie crossing border point into France. The Tunisian terrorist Mohamed Bouhlei used such weapons and ammunition in his terror attack in Nice.

Your Excellency,

We, Olsi Jazexhiu and Gjergji Thanasi investigate the illegal activities of MEK in Albania since many years. This organization which depicts itself as an exiled Iranian opposition group runs a paramilitary camp in the town of Manza in Durres, something illegal and criminal according to Albanian Penal Code. MEK makes illegal and terrorist calls for war and regime change against foreign countries which are members of the United Nations. They use our country as a base for their illegal and criminal activities which are condemned by your organization and the international law. The spread fake news and aim to terrorize the Western public opinion with fears in order to push Western governments into war with Iran. In the past years we have exposed MEK lies and fake news. Their claims for Iran’s alleged terror attacks in Albania have been exposed as fake news by us in a number of occasions:

According to data from Albanian Institute of Statistics (INSTAT) MEK hosts around 7000 ex-foreign fighters in our country. They are kept in isolation by their command in the camp of Manza. MEK’s soldiers live in isolation and are not allowed to have contact with the outside world including their families who want to meet them. They have no free access to the internet, television and people of the opposite sex. They are not allowed to fall in love, have sex, marry, have families or children. They are forced to live like radicalized soldiers, trained and waiting to wage a terrorist war against Iran. Their families have written many letters to the Albanian government, the United Nations etc and have demanded access to their relatives who are kept in isolation and radicalized with the jihadi ideology of war and regime change that their cult leaders indoctrinate them.

However, the mujahedeen command headed by Maryam RajaviMehdi Ambrishamchi etc have so far been successful to stop their families and human rights organizations to have access to the camp and liberate many Iranian citizens who are kept in isolation from the outside world since more than two decades.

The Albanian government has also not helped to solve the crisis that exists within the MEK camp. The Mojahedeen who were brought to Albania via UNHCR as protected refugees are now being persecuted by their jihadi command which keeps them in isolation and refuses them basic human rights like the right to marry, have a job, free movement, freedom of belief, thought etc. The Mojahedeen camp of Manza resembles China’s Uyghurs Concentration camps of Xinjiang.

The Albanian government which has responsibility to defend the rights of mojaheden refugees has so far abandoned them at the hand of MEK command. There are hundreds of MEK soldiers who want to live in freedom and abandon the Mojaheden Cult but are denied the freedom to do so. If they manage to run away from the camp they face prison, death or starvation. The Albanian government does not give them work permits, travel documents and they face slow death by poverty. Inside the camp many MEK members are suffering infections from Covid-19 and many are dying since the Mojaheden command has not vaccinated and given proper social distancing measures to its jihadi soldiers. MEK members who have managed to liberate themselves from the cult live in poverty in the outskirts of Tirana, the capital of Albania.

This was the case of Mr. Hadi Sani Khani who was working 14 hours per day as a waiter in order to survive outside MEK camp.

However the MEK command which attacks and intimidates the defectors has condemned and blackmailed Hadi in the past accusing him as being an agent of Iran.

Iranian Regime Uses Mois Agents Posing as Journalists in Attempts to Discredit Opposition

In Tirana the capital of Albania a large group of MEK defectors exist. These people have managed to escape the nightmare of the Mojaheden camp and decided to continue a civilian life. However they are viciously attacked by the Mojaheden command who accuses them as agents of Iran, terrorists etc. Through corruption, bribes and pressure MEK has managed to use Albanian state structures to intimidate and even jail many mojahedens who have abandoned jihad and do not want to take part in foreign wars for the sake of Maryam Rajavi and the Mojaheden command. People like Ehsan Bidi have been jailed and even forced by the Albanian police to smuggle himself into Greece. MEK is doing all it can to destroy its democratic and anti-cult opposition in Albania. It uses economic pressure, threats, jails, bribes and slander to scare and terrorize any of its members who wants to break free and abandon the jihadi cult of Maryam Rajavi.

Many Albanian media and journalists who know their desperate situation have tried to help the defectors in their quest for freedom. Journalists like us have exposed to the local and international media the vicious war that Maryam Rajavi and Mujahedin-e Khalq command is waging against the deradicalized defectors. We have brought to Albanian TV stations many MEK defectors who protest the insults, attacks and blackmails that MEK command does against them. They ask from Maryam Rajavi, Mehdi Ambrishamchi and other MEK commanders to live them alone. They do not want to engage in jihad against foreign countries since this is considered a terrorist crime according to Albanian and international law:

MEK has been very ruthless on attacking the media and journalists who expose MEK’s dirty war against its defectors. They have attacked journalists from Channel 4, BBC, Al-Jazeera, the Guardian and many Albanian media and journalists. Part of their latest attack with lies and slander is even the letter that Hadi Sani Khani signed on February 14, 2021. Hadi who was suffering from drug addiction, shortage of money and desperate situation – where he could not legally work in Albania agreed to betray his defecting friends and sign a letter full of lies dictated to him by the Mojahedeen command. He wrote this letter after MEK agreed to smuggle him into France. In this moment we have information that Hadi is hiding in Paris. MEK has organized a criminal trafficking operation and has sent him to France, probably via Greece using forged documents. We suspect that the smuggling operation was directed by the notorious ex-terrorist commander Mehdi Ambrishamchi who heads MEK’s “Security and Counterterrorism Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran”.

As journalists mentioned in the letter that MEK command directed to you we want to state that “we strongly reject all the lies and accusations that MEK command has issued against us. We challenge Maryam Rajavi, Mehdi Ambrishamchi and all the Mojaheden command to face us in the media and courts and prove their lies and not wage jihad of disinformation and terrorism against journalists.”

Your Excellency!

Through this letter we want to ensure you and all the listed individuals and organizations that we are not intimidated by the attacks, lies and terrorist blackmails of Mehdi Ambrishamchi and the Mojaheden command against us. We do not accept to sell our journalistic and humanitarian duty to defend the weak and expose ex-terrorist organizations like MEK who threaten people around the world.

We want appeal to you and your organization to do the best that you can to guarantee the safe movement and freedom of all Iranian mojahedeens in Albania, including those who renounce war and terrorism and do not want to break the international law and wage terrorist war against other countries. Your organization and other relevant agencies must ask the Albanian government:

  1. To dismantle and deradicalize the Mojaheden organization in Albania. Based on UN charter and international laws Albania should close the paramilitary camp of MEK and force the international and Albanian law to be implemented within and without the camp.
  2. Albania must give the right to work and travel to its Iranian refugees and must protect them from human rights abuse at the hand of the Mojaheden command.
  3. MEK commanders who abuse with their soldiers and have committed war crimes in Iran, Iraq, Albania and the world should face justice.
  4. MEK should release the prisoners of Iran – Iraq war which it keeps as slave soldiers in its camp since the time of Saddam Hussein.
  5. MEK should not be allowed to attack democracy in Albania and infringe the right of journalists like us to do our job.
  6. UNHCR and the Albanian government must support MEK defectors in Albania. They should have the right to free choice, abandoning of jihad and the Mojaheden camp, marrying, working, contacting their families and deradicalize themselves.
  7. UN and international organizations must demand from the Albanian state to start a process of mass deradicalization of MEK and stop MEK from threatening the security of Albania and the European Union. MEK should not be allowed to smuggle people / weapons and conflict into Europe or other countries of the world.
  8. The Mojaheden command and their leaders like Mehdi Ambrishamchi must be investigated for their involvement in the illegal smuggling of mojaheden ex-terrorist fighters into Europe. They must face justice for their smuggling operations in Europe.
  9. MEK should not be allowed to terrorize the European public opinion with fake news and lies against Iran, and it should not be allowed to challenge, scare and terrorize European policy makers about their relations with other countries.

For all the above we appeal to your Excellency, UNHCR, UNHCHR, Interior Ministry of Albania and the General Director of State Police of Albania to do all you can to stop human rights abuses and intimidation that MEK command does against its members and journalists in Albania and the world.

We appeal to Albanian and French authorities to start an urgent investigation into the case of Hadi Sani Khani. They must investigate how was Hadi illegally smuggled outside of Albania. What was the role of Mehdi Ambrishamchi in his illegal cross border escape from Albania? What money was paid to Hadi to sign a fake letter against his friends and journalists like us and what promises did the Mojaheden command made to him for this letter? Did the Mojaheden command smuggle weapons into France together with Hadi Sani Khani? Is the Mojaheden command planning a false flag operation in France through Hadi Sani Khani in order to sabotage The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (Iran Nuclear Deal)?

We also appeal to French authorities to take all the necessary measures to defend Hadi from further Mojaheden blackmail and misuse. Mr. Hadi Sani Khani is addicted to a controlled substance called Tramadol. Such an addiction makes him suitable to be used in false flag terror attacks. He can be used by the Mojaheden command to endanger the security of a NATO member country like France where we believe he is hiding at present. Based on the past record and present MEK condemnation of The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (Iran Nuclear Deal) we fear that the Mojaheden command might use him or other mojahedens for staging false flag terrorist operations in Europe.

For these reasons we appeal to you and other institutions listed in this letter to do all that you can to stop the Mojaheden mafia from provoking a terrorist scandal in Europe.

Sincerely,

Olsi Jazexhi and Gjergji Thanasi
