a person called Nader Rafi’ee investigated and tortured me. We were under control. We couldn’t escape.
I’m Anushirvan Riahi from the city of FiroozAbad in Fars province. I had gone to Dubai for job. I had no home, no job, and no money. At that time, with all those problems, they (Mojahedin) came and misused this situation of mine. They promised they would take me to European countries. The only thing which was needed, they said, was to go under military trainings and then everything would be okay. They deceived me anyway. It was early 2001. They took me to Baghdad. There was a camp called “Ashraf”. There, meeting others who had come earlier, I found that I had been deceived. I said that I don’t want to stay. A person called “Iraj” put his hands on my mouth and said that “either death or moving forward.” I stayed there, hoping I would find a way to run away. Anyway, we went inside and after 20 days in Entrance, they took me to Reception Section. I was there for a year. They should have sent me to their army in 6 months, but it took long since I disagreed with them. They tortured me a lot. There was a man called Nade Rafi’ee. He investigated me and tortured me. After a year, I saw that all ways are closed to me. The level of control was so high. Running away from that camp meant “Death”. We had to risk our lives and escape. We wanted to have 90% successful escape. We couldn’t escape. They forced me to join their army. When the US invaded, MKO surrendered and was disarmed. Americans issued ID cards for us. We left MKO camp and went to the US camp. I was there for 16 months. After our continuous efforts, Islamic Republic came and excused us. It is the kind of the leader of Iran who forgave us. I hope I could be a useful person for our Islamic society. To watch the film of interview, please click <1>here<1> To read “MEK and Human Smuggling, please click <2>here<2>
