Iran Interlink Weekly Digest Mojahedin Khalq MEK NCRI Rajavi cultFollowing the humiliating failure to force the illegal deportation of former MEK member Ehsan Bidi from Albania, reports indicate that Maryam Rajavi is facing difficulty containing doubt and criticism among the members in the Manez camp. Rajavi boasts to the members that she can order the Albanian establishment to fulfil her demands because she is backed by the CIA. So confident was she of her powers that she had already published news of Bidi’s deportation on her websites – pages she was forced to quickly retract, though not before implicating herself in the plot along with some of Albania’s corrupt politicians and officials. The members felt the crushing blow of being betrayed and deceived.

Now Rajavi is trying to escape this mess. Some days ago, she attempted to return to France, where she had previously had her headquarters, but was turned back. Rajavi was expelled from France and MEK activity severely curtailed two years ago after several incidents – including a suspicious bomb plot in 2017 – caused EU security services to reassess the risk of hosting this maverick group. Rajavi joined the bulk of MEK members in Albania and established a new headquarters there.

In 2003, when Rajavi and her leading lieutenants were arrested on terrorism charges in France, it was not possible to deport her because the MEK was based in Iraq which was deemed unsafe. However, now that Rajavi and the MEK members are established in the NATO country of Albania, it has been possible to refuse her entry to the EU. The fact that Rajavi is building an even bigger MEK base near Tirana International (aka Rinas) Airport has alerted EU security services to the danger of creating a ‘bridge’ by allowing Rajavi and other members to move freely between Albania and France and the rest of Europe. Although the MEK is no longer on the EU terrorism list, the group is still regarded in security circles as a dangerous, violent extremist entity.

However, it is not only Rajavi who is trying to escape Albania and seek refuge in the west. Her top lieutenants, Mehdi Abrishamchi and Mohammad Mohaddessin have tried to make their way to the United States. It is known that Abrishamchi was turned away. Even though the top MEK members use a multiple of passports with fake identities it appears that the security services in Albania, the EU and the US have enough intelligence to thwart these tricks.

What is significant in these attempts is why they are happening now. In spite of being strictly forbidden, several members have contact with the outside world. Their reports are of disillusionment and despair among the members at every level. The Ehsan Bidi debacle is the latest in a series of disturbing and unpalatable events in the group’s recent history. In this case, experts and observers are getting indications of a breakdown in order in the camp which may be difficult to recover from. No wonder Rajavi is lining up an escape route.

Maryam Rajavi imagined Ehsan Bidi is a pushover

Maryam Rajavi In Hiding - Iran Interlink Weekly Digest – Aug 21, 2020Iran Interlink, August 22 2020:… Former MEK member Ehsan Bidi defied a plot by Maryam Rajavi to have him illegally deported. He is now enjoying a free life in Tirana with his friends and supporters. Meanwhile, Maryam Rajavi and her MEK lieutenants are in hiding. Rajavi has tried to deflect attention away from this by mobilizing the cohort of non-member, paid MEK-paid sympathisers who live in the west, to mount a feeble social media attack on her critics. This quickly fizzled out. Internally, the Manez camp is chaos. Everyone is demoralised because they ‘couldn’t even deport Ehsan Bidi from Albania’. Maryam Rajavi In Hiding .

Iran Interlink Weekly Digest Mojahedin Khalq MEK NCRI Rajavi cult++ Former MEK member Ehsan Bidi defied a plot by Maryam Rajavi to have him illegally deported. He is now enjoying a free life in Tirana with his friends and supporters. Meanwhile, Maryam Rajavi and her MEK lieutenants are in hiding. Rajavi has tried to deflect attention away from this by mobilizing the cohort of non-member, paid MEK-paid sympathisers who live in the west, to mount a feeble social media attack on her critics. This quickly fizzled out. Internally, the Manez camp is chaos. Everyone is demoralised because they ‘couldn’t even deport Ehsan Bidi from Albania’. Rajavi boasts that she can order anything to happen because the CIA backs them, and the Albanian government supports them, etc. But the fact that Rajavi is in Albania shows that, as much as they want to deny it, she has been deported first from Iraq and now from the EU and she has nowhere else to go. MEK’s reaction has been to place three paid articles in the Washington Times in the space of a week. Two by her lobbyists and one under her own name. This is interpreted as Rajavi simply saying ‘I am alive!’ Inside the camp, talking about Ehsan Bidi is banned. (There is a list of subjects – including asking where is Massoud Rajavi? – that are forbidden to talk about.) You will be punished if you talk about him. Instead, the MEK have republished things from the so-called members of the NCRI, each one praising Massoud and Maryam Rajavi and their bravery, saying that if it wasn’t for this bravery, things would have been much worse. But in fact the NCRI doesn’t really have members, so they are dragging people from out of their ‘graves’ who used to be associated with the NCRI, but whom nobody has heard about for twenty years, and adding a title, like doctor or professor to their name. One such individual is known to have been in a psychiatric hospital all this time. The MEK’s level is now this. Before it was McCain, Giuliani, Bolton, etc. Now it’s just the cheapest lobbyists and some ‘dead’ Iranian has-beens. Many commentators putting all this together have predicted that the MEK is finished and can’t come back from this. No matter what they do, they can’t come back.

Ehsan Bidi Exposing MEK . Press Conference Went Ahead In Open AirEhsan Bidi Exposing MEK . Press Conference Went Ahead In Open Air

++ Four MEK members died in Albania this week. Rajavi refuses to allow any officials or authorities into the camp, whether medical or local council. For this reason, it is impossible to know what caused their deaths and whether they had COVID-19. Since there are no qualified or registered doctors in the camp, it is not known if anything could have been done to save their lives. Rajavi’s refusal to let anyone in is the same as when the MEK were in Iraq under the auspices of UNAMI. Rajavi is afraid that if officials and authorities go in, members will jump on them and beg them to help them leave.

In English:

++ Exit and other Albanian media reported on a Press Conference held to explain events which took place around the foiled plot to have former MEK member Ehsan Bidi illegally expelled from the country. Bidi was due to speak to reporters at Tirana International Hotel. However, “the hotel cancelled at the last minute, citing orders from the police. Exit called the hotel and asked what reason the police gave for cancelling the conference, and they said it was due to COVID-19 protocols.” Instead, the reporters gathered in the open air in Skanderbeg Square, which attracted even more attention.

++ Nejat Society, which represents estranged families of MEK members, reported that families in Ardabil province in Iran protested to Albania in a letter issued to the Albanian Interior Minister, against the treatment of a former member of MEK, Ehsan Bidi, in that country. The families pointed out that they are trying to get in contact with their loved ones in the MEK camp in Manez. The unfriendly attitude of the Albanian government is causing concern: “it should be noted that our children and loved ones arrived in Albania as asylum seekers in agreement with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and we expect the Albanian government to respect the rights of asylum seekers in accordance with international law. Unfortunately, what we are witnessing today is a clear violation of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) rules, including cutting off the monthly pensions of former members and not issuing identity documents to them in accordance with international standards. Finally, we, the families, expect the Albanian government to provide security for those who break away from the MEK in this country so that they can live in peace and freedom in a country that claims democracy, freedom of expression and is on the verge of joining the European Union.”

Greek border guards prevented their car from entering Greece, completely closing the border.

Ehsan Bidi Victim of MEK and Albanian Government Collusion

The Rajavi Cult in collaboration with corrupt elements in the Albanian government against an Iranian asylum seeker

Why are the MEK and the Albanian government so afraid of Ehsan Bidi?

Ehsan Bidi Victim of MEK and Albanian Government Collusion 1

Iranian asylum seeker Ehsan Bidi has been illegally detained for a year without charge, without trial and without the right to visitation. This was after he had previously been accepted as a refugee in Albania and even had a residence and work permit.

Ever since Ehsan Bidi, a former member of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization, was arrested, he has been under intense pressure to leave Albania voluntarily, but he resisted and refused to sign any confession. The pressure of the Albanian government, in full cooperation with the MEK, on the one hand, and the efforts of lawyers and a number of Albanian citizens who were constantly threatened by MEK elements, on the other hand, marked the battle of captivity and freedom during one year.

It is interesting that the same officials who arrested Ehsan Bidi and kept him in prison illegally are now accused of corruption, bribery and illegal actions in several cases. These corrupt officials worked in full complicity with the Rajavi terrorist cult.

Today, Thursday 13 August 2020, Ehsan Bidi was finally released after a year of illegal detention. In this regard, the Rajavi cult, which considered itself the main loser, under the name of “Security and Counter-Terrorism Commission of the National Council of Resistance”, revealed its weakness and false rhetoric by labelling every person and agency that had supported Bidi as ‘Iran’s intelligence agents’.

Although Ehsan Bidi was officially free, elements in the Albanian government’s mafia apparatus and the US, Israeli, and Saudi embassies that the MEK had approached, prevented them from giving him this freedom, and were instead constantly trying to force him to leave Albania.  Finally, today he was taken in a car to the Greek border.

Greek border guards prevented their car from entering Greece, completely closing the border. Consequently, the Albanian government agents left Bidi in a completely uninhabited area between the two counties with his belongings but without any food or water. This is the last point at which there has been news of Ehsan Bidi.

Ehsan Bidi Victim of MEK and Albanian Government Collusion 2

Ehsan Bidi was left in the neutral zone between Albania and Greece without the slightest means of helping himself. It has been essentially proven that the corrupt elements in the government of Edi Rama and his Saudi and Zionist supporters are no better than the Rajavi cult, and they are all involved in committing crimes.

The Greek authorities announced that they have closed the border and prevented them from entering. Lawyers and former MEK members in Albania, and even members of the Albanian parliament and a number of journalists, are trying to locate Ehsan and return him back to Albania, and some have travelled to the border for this purpose.

Terror has gripped Rajavi’s criminal den. Whenever this criminal and treacherous cult talks about a terrorist conspiracy, it is clear that it is itself carrying out a terrorist conspiracy. What will an organization that does this to its helpless former member simply because he has expressed dissatisfaction, do with serious opponents and critics? With each passing day, the hands of these evil elements, who are hired by one of the enemies of Iran and Iranians time to time, become more and more exposed.
