Petition of The MEK members’ families

More than 1,700 awaiting families of nearly 700 captured members in the MEK camp in Albania, signed a petition to the International Criminal Court, to which a list of signatures was sent.

The text of the petition is as follows:

Mr. Karim A. A. Khan QC
Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC)
Information and Evidence Unit
Office of the Prosecutor
The Hague
The Netherlands

Dear Sir
Greetings and Regards,
Recently, 42 former members filed lawsuits against the leaders of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, Rajavi Cult) led by Massoud and Maryam Rajavi in the judicial system of Iran. A final verdict was issued in this regard in the International Court of Justice in Tehran and all the documents were handed over to the Secretariat of the International Court of Justice in The Hague for your consideration and action. The crimes of the MEK against its members are not limited to these individuals or to the past time and still continue daily.

At present, about 2,000 members of the MEK are living in the organization’s forced labor camp in Albania under the control of a destructive mind control cult and in modern slavery situation, and have no right to have any contact with the outside world, especially family and friends.
“Widespread and Systematic Crimes Against Humanity” is what has been and is happening for decades in the camps of the MEK in Iraq in the past and now in Albania against the members of this organization, which is the gravest of concern to the international community.

Physical and Psychological Torture In Albania – 78 year old Rahim Kiukan

Based on the abundant evidence, the members of the MEK are prominent examples of serious violations of basic rights committed as part such as murder, rape, imprisonment, enforced disappearances, enslavement, sexual slavery, torture, apartheid and deportation. They are victims of crimes against humanity under Article 7 of the Rome Statute.

We call on you in the International Criminal Court in The Hague to prosecute and bring to justice the leaders of the MEK who continue to criminalize their followers and violate their most basic rights on European soil. And to rule for the rescue of hundreds of captives who are currently held incommunicado in the Rajavi Cult’s closed, isolated and remote camp in Albania.

With all respects,
Families of members of MEK
List of names, details and signatures of 1718 family members is attached

In this court, former members of the MEK spoke about the crimes committed by the Rajavi Cult against them and their families for more than 30 years, and some of them had the effects of physical injuries inflicted on them as a result of torture shown to the court judge and those present.

In this petition, more than 330 views in support of the international trial of Rajavi cult leaders have been recorded. A few number of the comments are as follows:

Asad Pak, a former member of the Rajavi Cult, wrote:

“I am Asad Pak, a prisoner of war in the Iraqi camps for 9 years. In 1990 I joined them through poisonous propaganda of the MEK. I was in their organization for ten years with the most difficult conditions. In 1999, in an inhumane manner, I was taken to prison in Camp Ashraf on the pretext that I was an infiltrator and an agent of Iran, and I was tortured and harassed. After a few months, I was transferred to Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, where I was held for two years under harsh conditions. I left there and returned to Iran in 2001. I hope the leaders of the Rajavi Cult will be tried as soon as possible and our rights will be taken from them.”

Alireza Saliqedar, brother of Khosrow Saliqedar, imprisoned in the Rajavi Cult’s camp in Albania, wrote:

“My brother Khosrow is a member of the Rajavi Cult and is unaware of my mother, who is paralyzed. A mother who travels to Iraq many times to embrace her son, but to no avail. In the meantime, Rajavi should be held accountable before the justice. We the families do support this. That day is not too far away.”

Mohammadreza Mobin Urging Trial Of MEK Leaders

Mohammadreza Mobin

Mohammad Reza Mobin, a former member of the Rajavi Cult, wrote:

“Undoubtedly this is one of the most glorious cases of the fight against terrorism and cultism in Europe, and the highest point of hope and encouragement for the former members who, like us, have been telling the world for years. that the organization has cultic relations, and within its relations there is widespread repression and torture of its members, and the cult leaders must be tried in an international anti-cult court. But we had nowhere to go, and always at the height of repression, we only reached out to God, and we asked him for help.

Mother of Fereydoun Nadayi Urging Trial Of MEK Leaders

The mother of Fereydoun Nedayi

Written by Ms. Roghayeh Farazian, says it all:

“I am the mother of Fereydoun Nedayi. My son was captured in the war and he has been imprisoned in the Rajavi camp for many years and I do not know about him. Fereydoun’s father died suffering from my son’s separation. I waited every day for Fereydoun to come back. I went to Iraq many times, but they prevented me from meeting my dear son. I wrote letters many times and asked for conditions to be provided so that Fereydoun’s father could hear Fereydoun’s voice when he was sick, but Massoud and Maryam Rajavi did not pay any attention. I have asked for the release of Fereydoun and all the prisoners. I wish my voice would reach Fereydoun and he would know that we are waiting to hear his voice and the news of his separation and we are waiting for him with open arms. I will not give up trying to save my dear son, and I will not stop trying as long as I live in my body. I, a mother, can never forget a part of my body, and my only wish is happiness and saving for Fereydoun, and I breathe in the hope of his return.”

Soraya Abdollahi, head of the Nejat Society’s Mothers’ Organization, wrote in a message:

“Mothers, the forgotten victims of the Rajavi Cult, along with the suffering families and former members of MEK, support with all their capacity the complaints of the former members in the International Court of Justice in The Hague. There is no doubt that victory in this path will continue until the release of all prisoners held in the Rajavi Cult’s camp in Albania. It is not far when our loved ones step into the free world.”

Leila Kiukan Urging Trial Of MEK Leaders

Leila Kiukan

Leila Kiukan, the youngest child of Rahim Kiukan, a captive in the Rajavi Cult in Albania, wrote:

“Greetings to all the loved ones who, like me and my family, have been suffering by this criminal cult, and I wish health and release for all prisoners in the Rajavi Cult, including my own father, Mr. Rahim Kiukan, and I hope this separation ends soon. Rajavi knows that we will fight to the end for our loved ones, father, mother, brother, and sisters, and we will bring him to his knees soon.”

Bahman Hashemi, brother of Farzin Hashemi, a prisoner in the Rajavi Cult, wrote:

“My brother Farzin has been a prisoner in the MEK terrorist organization for several years. My brother had a wife and two children abroad. The MEK terrorist organization, an enemy of the Iranian people, deceived my brother. It ruined his life. My mother died longing to see my brother. I will take revenge on my mother for Rajavi and his gang.”

In a lawsuit filed inside Iran, 42 former members of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, Rajavi Cult) have demanded compensation from the organization’s leaders for their lost rights.

MEK Leaders Court Case . Petition By Complainants

Click here to signThese people, who were enslaved and contained in the closed and remote Camp Ashraf in Iraq, isolated from the outside world, and subjected to the conditions of severe cultic abuse, found the opportunity to escape from the organization with the fall of Saddam Hussein’s dictatorship in Iraq and they returned to Iran.

Now, in the context of Iranian judicial law and international justice they are seeking compensation from the leaders of the MEK.

These former members of the Rajavi Cult raised their complaint in the Iranian judicial system in March 2019. Branch 55 of the Tehran International Legal and General Court officially registered their complaint, and on March 7 and 8, 2021, court hearings were held. The primary verdict of the Court was issued on March 16, 2021. The Iranian judiciary, in accordance with civil procedures, sent notices to the governments of France and Albania to notify the defendants, who are residents there, of the verdict.

Now, with the final verdict of the Iranian judiciary and the accompanying media coverage of the case at domestic and international levels, the number of plaintiffs has reached more than 200 – which is constantly increasing – who are seeking to file a complaint with international judicial bodies against the MEK leaders.

We, the signatories of this petition, call on the International Court of Justice in The Hague, as well as the governments of France and Albania, to work for the realization of the rights of the material, physical and spiritual victims of the MEK.

They are those who, through behaviors such as slavery, solitary confinement, torture and severe bodily harm, great suffering and irreparable psychological damage, sexual slavery, etc. are clear examples of Article 7 of the Statute of the International Criminal Court as victims of a crime against humanity.

Click here to signWe urge the International Criminal Court in The Hague to prosecute the MEK leaders who continue to practice cultic abuse and freely violate the most basic rights of their members on European soil, and to administer justice, while ordering compensation for some of the damage caused by years of modern slavery. And to further come to the rescue of the hundreds of other captives currently being held in the closed, remote and isolated camp of the Rajavi Cult in Albania.

1-Holding a trial for the Mojahedin Khalq in Iran

Jack Turner

The investigation into the complaints of 42 former members of the Mojahedin Khalq against the senior members of the group has begun. In the first court hearing the petitions of these individuals, part of the physical and mental torture committed by the Mojahedin Khalq was stated.

At the beginning of the hearing, Judge Pourmoridi, while announcing the formality of the hearing, said: The defendants, in this case, are the group of Hypocrites (Mujahedin-e Khalq), Massoud Rajavi, Maryam Rajavi, Mehdi Abrishamchi, Abolghasem Rezaei, Seyed Mohammad Seyed Mohaddesi, Majid Hariri, Mahboubeh Jamshidi, Mehdi Moradi, Mojgan Parsai, Mohammad Ali Tofighi Khaniki, Mohammad Hayati, Abbas Ali Seifipour, Hadi Roshanrovan, Alireza Jafarzadeh, Mohammad Sadegh Sadat Darbandi, Mahvash Sepehri, Azra Alavi Taleghani, Mehdi Ali Gholi, Mohammad Javad Ghadiri Modarresi, Sara Samsami, and Giti Givechian.

He continued: “Through France and Albania, where the members of this group reside, the notification was made after the submission of the petition.” We directly talked to the Albanian Ministry of Justice so that they could receive the notification sent to them through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The head of the court said: the notification was sent in January of 2021 and two months of legal opportunity have passed until the investigation.

The lawyer of the 42 ex-members of MEK, Mr. Tavasoli said in the petition: “Human Rights Watch has provided a detailed investigation in this regard, some of the documents of which are mentioned in the petition.”

He said:

“At different times, a series of instructions have been given to the members of this group, one of the instructions of that headquarter was regarding the social section of the group.”

He continued: For example, Massoud Rajavi declares that everyone should divorce their spouses and all family emotions should be on my side, everyone should just love me and live for me.

One of the leaders of this cult, Massoud Banisadr, who left the cult, says: ‘Operation Forough Javidan, which we refer to in Iran as Operation Mersad, destroyed our political hope, which for me and many others it signaled an ideological end. We all became actors who played with each other and encouraged each other, and after Operation Forough, the well of honesty dried up completely.

Tavasoli said:

“According to Batool Soltani, another member of the leadership council of the group, women in this cult are deprived of the most basic rights, they do not have the right to marry, let alone choose a husband, in this cult because having a social life, having private things like a private bedroom, do not matter and women cannot go anywhere alone. No one dared to criticize the organization, and many women were physically abused”.

He continued: sexual exploitation was done for the leader of the cult, who was Massoud Rajavi.

He stressed: According to Human Rights Watch, this group uses three types of prisons. The first type is small units known as guesthouses. The second type of imprisoning was inside the camp which was called Bengal incarceration, and the third type was the incarceration in which women were physically tortured.

The lawyer continued: “Beating with cable, burning, beating, etc. are among the tortures that the victims of this group, who are among the plaintiffs of this case, suffered.” One of the members who had the word “mother” tattooed on his arm was forced to remove the word from his hand by heating it.

He continued:

“Forcing to sleep with Massoud Rajavi, cutting body parts, severely beating and throwing on pieces of hot glass is part of the tortures that the victims of this group and the plaintiffs suffered and has caused psychological damage to the plaintiffs.”

He added: The members of the hypocrites (MEK) were obliged to work 14 hours of forced labor, including doing agriculture, transportation, torture, etc., for little food per day; In many cases, the work done by the members was useless and so that the person would not be unemployed. The plaintiffs, in this case, are people who have been harmed for years, and therefore financial compensation can never make up for the lives lost to these people.

Referring to the declaration of Human Rights, he said: “According to this declaration, all human beings are born free and everyone has the right of life, liberty, and security, and no one can be enslaved or tortured.” Given the principles enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations and the fact that these rights derive from the inherent dignity of the human person and in view of the above and the basic rule of civil liability, the issuance of a sentence following the statements is requested.
