“I will not stay here since you lied to me. Send me back to Turkey,” I said. They said that “you may be an agent of regime who has come here for sabotaging purposes”. They also said that I had to stay 2 years in their prison and 8 years in Abu Ghraib if I really wanted to go. I was frightened and there was no way except signing the documents.
I am Taha Husseini from the city of Mahallat. I had traveled to Turkey when I acquainted Mojahedin supporters in Turkey. They promised me of a job abroad and said that I should go to Iraq; they said that there’s an organization which needs young workforce. I was taken to Camp Ashraf (city of Ashraf, according to MKO members), where I found that I had been deceived. It was full of tanks and weapons. Four women and four men entered the room to interview me. They asked why I had gone to Iraq. I said that I had traveled to Turkey to find a job. They said they were fighting Islamic republic and that’s why they had taken me to Iraq. I objected and said that they had deceived me. “I will not stay here since you lied to me. Send me back to Turkey,” I said. They said that “you may be an agent of regime who has come here for sabotaging purposes”. They also said that I had to stay 2 years in their prison and 8 years in Abu Ghraib if I really wanted to go. I was frightened and there was no way except signing the documents. They pressurized me so much. I had to work from morning to night. Then at nights, there were “current operation” sessions in which we gathered together and criticized ourselves. Everyday they taught us how to fight with the regime. For two months I was there. Then the invasion of US to Iraq began. We closely watched the bombings during the war but we couldn’t escape because we were watched carefully. Then the US military came and interviewed us. Then we went to the US camp for a while. I decided to get back to Iran because Mojahedin had lied to us. I had a job in Iran and had lived in it for 25 years without having any problem with the government. Now I have returned to Iran due the public pardon by the government to live my life. To watch the film of interview, please click <1>here<1>.
