We and our friends, who have separated from Mojahedin-e Khalq organization, have gathered here to express our protest against Mojahedin and its terrorist activities. In addition, we want to ask French government to step up the process of a court held to investigate the activities of the leaders of this organization, especially Maryam Rajavi
Interview of Ms. Robabeh Shahrokhi and Mr. Mohammed Hussein Sobhani and Mr. Karim Haghi with VOA A group of MKO defectors and their families gathered in Paris on Tuesday (March 29, 2005) to protest this organization. Here’s the detailed report of VOA’s correspondent on this issue: Nearly 150 MKO defectors and their families gathered today morning before the French Parliament. These people who had come from different European cities held a similar gathering this afternoon in Human Right Square in Paris. One of the participants was Mr. Mohammed Hussein Sobhani. I asked him about the reason of this gathering. “We and our friends, who have separated from Mojahedin-e Khalq organization, have gathered here to express our protest against Mojahedin and its terrorist activities. In addition, we want to ask French government to step up the process of a court held to investigate the activities of the leaders of this organization, especially Maryam Rajavi.” Why did you take action against Maryam Rajav, not Massoud Rajavi? When you were a member, he was in charge, wasn’t he? “Yes, we have taken action against him but since according to French laws at the time being only Maryam Rajavi is in Paris we did so, and our complaint against Massoud is in its own place.” What’s your complaint exactly? “The complaint of us, and of many other defectors most of whom have been in MKO and Abu Ghraib prisons, is that their rights had been violated there, they had been solitary prison cells, they had been separated from their families, they divorced their spouses and their children are now orphans. Now, my wife Mrs. Afsaneh Taherian is in Iraq. We have filed action to pursue this issue. I want to stress that MKO has conducted terrorist threats against former members, including me and our other friends, in Europe. For instance, Mehdi Abrishamchi has threatened to assassinate us. He has compared us to Abbas Shahriari who was assassinated during Shah’s rulership by Fedayeen guerillas. He has claimed that they (Mojahedin) would do the same with us. The tape is available and we would take the necessary action.” Interview with Ms. Robabeh Shahrokhi (Mother Rezvan) “I am Robabeh Shahrokhi. I have come from Sweden. I have lost 3 of my children in Rajavi’s way. Of course, one was killed by Mojahedin itself in Iraq. I myself was in Iraq for 6 years and my nickname was Rezvan.” Where do you live now? “In Sweden. I came here 3 days ago.” Why are you here? “I have come to protest to Rajavi and try to free lost members and families’ children” Who should free them? “They are captives of Rajavi.” Now that representatives of the UN are there, is Mr. Rajavi still able to keep them? “Yes, they are captive there, and they can do nothing.” Are they (MKO) armed there in Baghdad? “No, Americans have disarmed them.” So, how can they keep your children? “I don’t know. Ashraf itself is a prison. I have been there and I know that they watched the camp from inside and Iraqis watched it from outside. Now, Americans do that.” Interview of Mr. Karim Haghi We gave our evidences to the representatives of French Parliament. We had several meetings with them and discussed the issue of families. Apart from the personal will of the members (and whether they want to stay or leave), the issue of families and their relations with their loved ones should be solved. We also discussed the issue of our case against the organization, which is running in French court. For violating our rights and having been tortured we have taken action. We asked the parliament to step up the process of the court. To listen to the report of VOA, please click <1>here<1>.
