he had talked to his wife. She had asked him to mange her transfer to Europe. But when they talked, his wife said no. Then an afghan woman there, who was also interpreter, said to him that “someone had said to his wife that if she leaves the group, her husband will be killed and her daughter will die under the wheels of a car.
Dr. Nourizadeh: …. Now I want to tell you something that I’m really sorry about it and I hope those in NCRI and MKO hear me. What I want to say is based on compassion. A friend who’s been formerly in the Organization of Mojahedin and is living in Norway had gone to Iraq to bring back his wife. He had even got a visa for her to enter Norway. He has an 18 year old daughter who has not seen her mother for about 14-15 years. He told me that there in Iraq, Americans have built a camp beside Ashraf camp, a quick camp, with caravans and tents, in which defectors of the organization live. There are 560 defectors in the camp. He could finally meet his wife, with the presence of 4 Americans (two Iranians and two Afghans who had become American) as well as two US soldiers. What he said was shocking and I hope MKO and NCRI and those who support this organization (especially those who are still under the influence of morality) hear these words, people like Mr. Same’ and others who have worked in this organization, I hope they hear these words.... Anyway, he had talked to his wife. She had asked him to mange her transfer to Europe. But when they talked, his wife said no. Then an afghan woman there, who was also interpreter, said to him that “someone had said to his wife that if she leaves the group, her husband will be killed and her daughter will die under the wheels of a car.” The organization should know that it can keep the forces only with love and faith. No one would stay with threatening; if someone wants to go, let him go. They’re tired. They have been in Iraq for 18 years. Parading and marching has made them tired. Don’t let the Islamic Republic to use this tiredness and use them on its TV screens. Let them go. If someone wants to go and rejoins his family and wife, let him go. Don’t misinterpret my words. I am talking out of friendship. I was really shocked to hear the situation of that woman in Iraq. My friend told me about the painful condition of those in Iraq. Specially, those who have separated from the organization are continuously accused of being spy and fifth column of the Islamic republic. Don’t do this. You were once sisters and brothers. Don’t do this to each other. Meibodi: Mr. Nourizadeh, in a sense they may be right. You know that Islamic republic made propagandistic traps for them several time. Attacked them repeatedly… Dr. Nourizadeh: the best way to fight back these traps is to let them go, those who want to leave the group. If someone wants to go, he should be allowed to go. No one should be kept by force. Meibodi: exactly, exactly Dr. Nourizadeh: then, the ones who stay, stay willingly. But this woman, whose husband traveled thousands of kilometers.. he tried hardly to get there. He asked me to introduce him to Mr. Talabani and a few others. He went there with horror and fear. Now he has returned barehanded. I hope they (MKO) considers these issues and doesn’t let the Islamic Republic to misuse such cases.
