“people inside the organization have no contact with outside and, even when there were talks of interview with US State Department, they admitted me in the hospital as psychopathic and Americans eventually took me out of there by force.No one believes in the organization except Masoud and Maryam Rajavi and all the members are being kept there by force,” says Ronak Dashti
Among 13 former MKO members who have returned to Tehran, there are two brothers and a brother and sister. Ronak and Shahram Dashti (sister and brother), Mehdi and Mostafa Rajabi (brothers), Alireza Bahri, Ali Moradi, Nader Bani Farahani, Ali Amani Saheb, Ghorban Heydarnia, Hussein Morad Ali Nia, Ardeshir Darvishi, Habiballah Almasi, and Farhad Shirani constitute the third group of MKO members who return to the country with the assistance of international Red Cross. Ronak Dashti, with her brother and two of his friends, were going to leave Iran for Europe. In Turkey, her uncle (supporter of MKO) took them to MKO’s camp in Iraq. She says: “They separated me from my brother and others and sent me to Iraq under the name of Italy’s train and then I was transferred to Camp Ashraf.” “After 8 month, I met my brother who had come to find me and had been trapped by MKO.” Ronak Dashti adds: “they told me that we should stay in the camp for 2 years and that then we will be given to Iraqi government. We waited until the US attacked Iran and they told us that we are not allowed to leave the camp.” Referring to the suffocating situation of MKO and psychological tortures applied, she said: “people inside the organization have no contact with outside and, even when there were talks of interview with US State Department, they admitted me in the hospital as psychopathic and Americans eventually took me out of there by force.” Dashti claims that no one believes in the organization except Masoud and Maryam Rajavi and all the members are being kept there by force. “A number of women entered the camp after me but they didn’t know what was happening in the camp. They talked of some ideological issues they didn’t believe in. They forced members to give pledges under psychological pressures.” Dashti says during 3 years in the camp she met her brother only 4 times. “We met two times for ten minutes. After this short time, they asked me about what we said and what we saw.” About the availability of news and media in MKO, she said: “We only could watch MKO’s private channel when having lunch and at Friday nights they played a film for us. The computers in the complex were not connected to the outside world.” Mehdi Rajabi, in an interview with Fars, said that he had gone to Dubai in 2002. There, he was deceived and taken to Camp Ashraf by a MKO member who had promised him job in Europe. “There were thousand other who had been deceived in similar way.” He adds: “They forced me to give several pledges. They told me that I have to explain my dreams for them. I realized from the beginning that I had made mistake and I escaped. But I was arrested by Baath regime and they gave me to MKO again.” “A year after I went to Camp Ashraf and a year later my brother came.” Mostafa Rajabi says: “We had no information about Mehdi for about a year until a woman (Mina) called and introduced herself as sister of Mehdi’s friend. She said that they were going toward Europe and that they needed my help.” “We suspected her and didn’t take her seriously for six months. Of course, she was in contact with me by e-mail.” “After six month she said that my brother was in difficult situation and needed my help. I went to find my brother but I was trapped myself and I couldn’t see my brother for more six months,” he added. This former member of Mojahedin said: “although they always said that we would be prosecuted in the case of returning to Iran, we still tried to escape.” 28 other MKO members have returned to Iran during past few weeks.
