We were supposed to be smuggled to Dubai and then to European countries. However, they took us to Iraq and handed us over to the MKO
Five former members of the banned Iranian opposition group, Mujahideen Khalq Organization, returned home after a special ceremony. The ex-MKO members explained how they joined the terrorist group, how the MKO treated them, and how they defected from the terrorist organization. A former MKO member, Masoud Ahmadi, told IRNA that he was deceived by smugglers who work for MKO and was smuggled to Iraq. “We were supposed to be smuggled to Dubai and then to European countries. However, they took us to Iraq and handed us over to the MKO,“ he added. Ahmadi noted that since the time he entered Ashraf Camp, he dreamed of returning to Iran due to the lies and libel spread by MKO leaders. “After former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was toppled, I followed up my case through the International Committee of the Red Cross. That is how I managed to defect MKO.“ Commenting on how Iranian officials had treated him upon his return, Ahmadi pointed out that he was treated fairly and in a manner he had not expected. Five MKO members who returned on Wednesday were Masoud Ahmadi, Jalal Golmoradi, Ali Azizi, Nosratollah Ahmadi and Ali-Morad Mehdi-Panah. A total of 500 ex-MKO members have already returned home following the ouster of Saddam in late 2003
