Davood Baghervand Arshad, No to Terrorism Cults, Germany, October 08 2019:… Your country has been kindly hosting many of my brothers and sisters and also my wife which was forcefully separated from me by Mek, saving them from being torn apart by shelling in Iraq, where Madam Rajavi brutally insisted on members to stay in order to utilize their (martyrdom) death as a means of political propaganda feeds of her Shows in the West (like the one you were also guided through in Ashraf 3 during your recent visit). This barbaric, criminal policy towards Mek members was in line with the Mr. Masoud Rajavi’s publicly announced guidelines that: “every 1000 member being killed in defending Ashraf/Liberty Camp (based on Iraqi Government demanding the Mek to leave Iraq) is equivalent to his conquering Iran’s Capital Tehran”.

Open Letter to Mr. Ilir Meta the President of Albania
Dear Mr. President,
I am Davood Baghervand Arshad a UK-educated Iranian Engineer based in Germany. I was a member of Peoples Mujahidin Khalgh (MEK) of Iran and a member of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) for three decades. I was the head of Mek’s Student Organization outside Iran, later head of Mek’s Turkish branch and later head of Mek’s Pakistani Branch under Masoud Rajavi. I represented Mek-NCRI in Pakistan which met with Pakistan’s Minister of Home affairs twice together with another ex-member of NCRI Dr. Matin Daftary (grandson of Iran’s Historic leader and prime minister Dr. Mohammad Mosaddegh who nationalized Iranian oil in 1950s) negotiating the release of the 1.5 Million USD which Mek was illegally was smuggling through Karachi Airport which was confiscated by airport authorities. When I decided to leave Mek in Ashraf 1, I was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment by Mek. I defected to Americans only after the USA invaded Iraq.
Your country has been kindly hosting many of my brothers and sisters and also my wife which was forcefully separated from me by Mek, saving them from being torn apart by shelling in Iraq, where Madam Rajavi brutally insisted on members to stay in order to utilize their (martyrdom) death as a means of political propaganda feeds of her Shows in the West (like the one you were also guided through in Ashraf 3 during your recent visit). This barbaric, criminal policy towards Mek members was in line with the Mr. Masoud Rajavi’s publicly announced guidelines that: “every 1000 member being killed in defending Ashraf/Liberty Camp (based on Iraqi Government demanding the Mek to leave Iraq) is equivalent to his conquering Iran’s Capital Tehran”.
This deceitful line of action was in fact, based on Mr. and Mrs. Rajavi’s intentions of keeping members locked up and isolated from the world in Kamp Liberty in Iraq, as a means of silencing them, plus producing more martyrs for Mek’s Shows in the West when killed under shelling. Where, when Mrs. Rajavi left 100 unarmed, unprotected members in Ashraf 1 and left for Liberty Camp, 52 of them were massacred by Iraqi forces. But for Mek that was no problem, they provide the best show pictures to be used as the barbarism of the Iraqis and Mek’s asset for fighting for justice! While Mek with all the wealth and political support could easily as UNHCR insisted, displace members as individuals to countries outside Iraq.
Having said all that, one would easily understand why Mek under no circumstance allows his members most of them in their late sixties and fifties not to meet with their family members due to fear of them defecting from Mek (Mek’s Cultic Nature).
As even Masoud Rajavi’s son Mr. Mohammad Rajavi (born and raised inside Mek) has recently after defecting from Ashraf 3 in Tirana, announced to disclose his father’s barbarism, dictatorship, and atrocities committed inside the Mek organization and against his country.
Dear Mr. President
What would you call a group of Albanians who have united with the country that has invaded part of Albania, acting as front runners of the enemy’s army destroying your cities and killing your brave Albanian soldiers defending their country, plus systematically spying on Albanian military in favor of the enemy?
To my very best knowledge, Iranian people inside and outside Iran together with Iranian opposition outside Iran not only don’t consider those people as freedom fighters but as criminals that must be put in trial for treason against their country.
I am sure the answer of the president of a country and leader of a socialist party is and must be a very big and loud “YES I AGREE”.
But Mek did not stop at that, they had set up death-terror squads (hit teams, bombings, shelling) killing any Iranian citizen supporter of the newly established government after the fall of the Shah, with a record of 17000 people assassinated. Mek’s terror record is rocket high when it included border killing of Iranian soldiers defending their country. Terror did not start by Mek in recent times; they assassinated Iranian officials and foreign nationals in the previous regime. That was the reason why they were on the terrorist list of USA, EU, UK just until recently. Mr. Masoud Rajavi pronouncing himself as representative of the GOD on the earth also advocates utilizing 10-year-olds children in a war against enemies. (Pls see the attached file Who Are MEK)
For the same above reasons that you would have agreed, the Iranians condemn any sidelining with Mek criminals. No person who has a love of his country, love of democracy and freedom could not and should not subject her/his consciousness/conscience to be insulted by being deceived by Mek, as a result supporting treason and terrorism.
Iranian people will not forget their friends and those who sideline with their enemies. Struggle for democracy and freedom has nothing to do with terrorism and treason against one’s own country. No one can claim to achieve democracy or freedom through terrorism.
I attach a file including all the official positions of Mek published and distributed by them together with their English translation. I hope to help your excellence reach the same understanding from Mek as Iranian People.

Open letter to Albanian Government objecting Pandeli Mijko paid lobbying for Maryam Rajavi cult, Mojahedin Khalq, terrorism and violence
Mr. Davood Arshad’s letter to the Albanian Government handed over to Albanian embassy officials in Germany on the participation of the Minister of Immigration of Albania Mr. Pandeli Mijko in Mujahidin-e-Khagq’s (Mek) gathering in Villepin-Paris
Dear Albanian Government
I am Mr. Davood Baghervand Arshad a senior and high ranking officials of the Mek (Rajavi Sect) and members of the National Council for Resistance who has been defected from this sect because of its totalitarianism and terrorism.
I was deeply saddened by the news of Mr. Pandeli Mijko, the Minister of immigration affairs of Albania taking part in Mek’s gathering show in Paris.
It is most unfortunate that a terrorist group with well-known mafia tricks can deceive a Minister of a European Government to participate in the showcase of diverse population of refugees gathered from different refugee camps in Europe plus homeless Eastern Europeans, which have been bussed in return for an all-inclusive free three day trip to Paris plus pocket money in order to pretend to have Iranians supporting their gathering with the aim of deceiving and influencing their audience and some already deceived politicians in the gathering as a strongly supported Iranian opposition.
It is also unfortunate to see the extent that Mek if prepared to deceive the Iranians and their audience by insulting their conscience. This is despite the fact that Mek’s dirty trick has been disclosed by the Western media for hundreds of times. One of the last but not least, was the Guardian newspaper Mon 2 Jul 2018, that wrote:
I would like to add that Mr. Pandeli Mijko took part in its gathering, committed a terrorist act by beating up two of its critics in front of EU Parliament in Brussels in December 2017 during which Mr. Denis MacShane a former Labour MP was also beaten up by Maryam Rajavi’s agents.
The incident raised the EU Parliamentarian’s serious concerns to the point that MEP Ana Gomes raised the issue as a barbaric act and a treat to EU and EU MEP members and asked Ms. Mogerini to expel all the MEK’s agents from EU Parliament.
English Standard newspaper mentioned the incident as:
DON’T mess with Denis MacShane! The former Labor MP, author and Good Samaritan is in Brussels, and says that he stepped in to help a man in a street attack yesterday, only to get a beating himself. “Outside European Parliament thugs from People’s Mujahedin of Iran violently attacking elderly man, hitting with sticks, kicks etc,” he tweeted yesterday. “I told them to stop it, so they started attacking me with sticks, fists etc. And we weren’t even discussing Brexit!”
With regards to the above case and the methods Mek deals with its dissident members in broad day light in front of EU Parliament, would it be difficult to imagine MEK’s reaction to the opposition of its members inside their close cult?
Let me also add that the situation of human right abuse in Mek is so grave that even the son of Masoud Rajavi, Mohammad Rajvi one of the victims of this organization having defected MEK announced that will disclose all his father’s atrocities.
Does this raise enough concern not to take part in the empty shows of strength of Mek?
If the above said is not enough, as an ex-high ranking member of Mek and it National Council of Resistance, may I bring to the attention of the honorable Minister of immigration Mr. Pandeli Majko that:
Masoud and Maryam Rajavi hired about 2000 young Iraqis and trained them militarily and ideologically to be utilized throughout Iraq to collect information about coalition forces movements resulting in many deathly attacks on them, also to destabilize Iraq in order to topple the Iraqi government, so the Ex-Baath party leaders active in ISIS could take power in Iraq again, giving Masoud and Maryam Rajavi a free hand as before at the Saddam’s time? Mek officers who have been involved in training the 2000 terrorists are present for testimony.
Furthermore Mek created false Arab-Iraqi organizations by paying some villagers anxious for money under total embargo and aftermath of Golf war, to issue and release support communiques about MEK. All these atrocities were of course later disclosed by Iraqi Government officials in the media.
In this regards may I also share with you some of the experience of only two governments that have been very closely dealing with Mek for four decades such as Saudi Arabia and Franc, may that prevent the future backlash of overlooking the nature of MEK in your country by their host country.
The first document is how Saudi Arabia that is a strong financial and political supporter of MEK evaluates Mek.
The translation of the Arabic WikiLiks document is as follows:
In the Name of God the Merciful
The Head Saudi Intelligence
Ref No. 2113/510-18/12/35
Date: Jan 9, 2012; 15/02/1433
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
Head of Saudi Intelligence (101)
Subject: About Maryam Rajavi
His Royal Highness the Prince, the of Secretary of State
Peace, mercy and blessings be upon you
With regards to the letter of the Prince ref, 51173/2/7 , on 13/02/1433 AH 7/2/50173 (equivalent to the January 7, 2012 AD – Translator),with regards to the message you received from Dr. Amer al-Tamimi, which in that message, he suggested to arrange a private meeting with Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian head of MKO in Paris, and following that your Highness demanding the view point of the head of information Organization with regards to this request, we would like to inform His Highness as follows:
With regards to His Highness’s question and surprise in relation to the request letter of Dr. Amer Al Tamaimi stating that he is prepared to arrange a meeting with Maryam Rajavi apart from Dr. Saleh AL Motlaq and without his knowledge; the Head of Saudi Intelligence believes that, Dr. Al Tamimi’s request means that he is prepared to arrange an independent meeting without the knowledge of Dr. Al Motlaq, because he wishes to keep this meeting a secret and he also bears the responsibility for the meeting, also stating that Dr. Al Motlaq has no knowledge about it.
All the existing information tells us that, the Iranian Intelligence Services has infiltrated the Iranian Mojahedine Khalq Organization (MKO). Also this organization (MKO) has no role and effect in Iranian affairs and has no acceptance within Iran.
The second document is how French government considers Mek.
At the end my main concern are our family members and friends still enslaved by Mek in Tirana as the basic human rights to be facilitated the basic needs of free choice, free communications, and contact with parents and family members.
