Abbas Sadeghi Nejad, a former member of MKO, said that MKO has changed the way of trialing dissidents in this group.
This former member said to VOA: "when this group couldn't reach good results by putting dissidents in jail since 1994, it changed the way of suppressing dissidents." He added: "the new method is called "internal Trial" in which 30 members of the organization insult the dissident member and take him to the point of psychological failure so that he will accept all conditions of the organization. This method continues for 3 days. During this 3 days the dissident member is not allowed to leave the place of trial but the 30 members are substituted continually."
This has been ordered by Maryam and Masoud Rajavi in order to control the members.
About the faithfulness of the members to the organization's ideology, he said: "regarding these matters, many left the group in Iraq; but during past years Iraq's security service prevented members from leaving the group. If they're free, 90 percent of the members will leave."
"After the failure of mortaring strategy in Iran in 2002, the members of the group were trialed in a court run by Masoud and Maryam Rajavi," Sadeghi Nejad said. 50 senior members of the group were trialed in such courts for 3 months.
