Estranged families of Mojahedin Khalq members seek PM Rama's help to meet loved ones.
The arrival of the Mojahedin-e Khalq in our country has exposed the divisions between the members and their leaders, and now it seems their only hope is to find help from Albania's Prime Minister Edi Rama.
Some family members of the members of the terrorist organization Mojahedin-e Khalq from the province of Ilam in western Iran have sent a letter to Prime Minister Rama. They have asked him to help them meet with their loved ones because the leaders of the MEK do not allow such meetings.
The text of the letter is as follows:
Dear Prime Minister, Mr Edi Rama
We are some families of Mojahedin-e Khalq members. We live in Ilam Province, Iran. The names of our loved ones are listed at the end of this letter. These are people who, some years ago, were deceived by the empty promises of MEK leaders Massoud and Maryam Rajavi. Our loved ones were thus sent to Iraq and each of them have, for over 20 years, been separated from their families and placed under physical and mental captivity and are living under severely restrictive measures.
They are also deprived of any contact with their families by telephone or through correspondence. Many times we went to Iraq to make contact with our loved ones. We faced all the difficulties of travelling to Iraq and the dangerous situation in that country and have gone to the gates of MEK camps Ashraf and Liberty. We asked that our loved ones could meet with us. But, unfortunately we were faced with insults, curses and abuse on the part of the Mojahedin-e Khalq leaders. Each time we returned to our homes disappointed, without meeting with our loved ones.
Now we ask you, the honourable Prime Minister of Albania, to help us by creating opportunities to meet with our loved ones. We hope that this letter will be read personally by you, the Prime Minister of Albania and that you will enable us to rejoice with our children. It is in your power to help us and grant us our request.
We express our sincere appreciation.
Ali Asghar Barani
