After long quarrel they allowed me to meet them for half an hour but they didn’t let me talk to my wife in private even for 5 minutes. Their fear was that I might leave the group and get back to Iran
I’m Hussein Afshar, from the city of Ghazvin. I left Iran in 2001 and went to turkey to find a job. I wanted to go to a European country but I failed. Then I became acquainted with a contact of Mojahedin and due to a series of events I was forced to join the MKO. They took me to Iraq and then in Ashraf camp I was trained, militarily and ideologically. I was in reception section for about 13 months. Then, I gradually found a series of matters which were not acceptable, such as divorcing spouse and breaking the family. They even didn’t let you make contact with your family and their excuse was that there’s no telephone! There, I submitted my request to leave them but since I had heard that they beat and torture the members I was afraid to leave. After 13 months in reception, they sent me to the army. I was in the army for a month and half. Then the US-led invasion to Iraq began and we left the camp and went near the Iranian borders. After the fall of Iraqi regime and disarmament of Mojahedin and ceasefire with the US, all members returned to Camp Ashraf.. When we asked them why they have surrendered the weapons they said that they preferred the “owner of weapons” to the “weapons”. They said that they sell the weapons to topple the Iranian regime. Whenever we asked to leave the group they didn’t allow us to do that. Finally, in 2004 my wife and my two kids with my father and mother came to visit me. Mojahedin called me and said that they had come to visit me. But they said that I should not meet them since they have come to the camp by the Iranian intelligence service. I said that I haven’t seen my third child and I should meet them. After long quarrel they allowed me to meet them for half an hour but they didn’t let me talk to my wife in private even for 5 minutes. Their fear was that I might leave the group and get back to Iran. After that, I never had a good situation and always asked to go but they didn’t let me leave them. Finally, I escaped the organization’s camp and went to the Americans. I was with Americans for 70 days and then came back to Iran with the second group of defectors. When I entered Iran, intelligence agents treated me very well. I didn’t expect that. They didn’t even inspect us during our stay here. Instead, when we entered MKO organization they inspected all our clothes. This afternoon, I’m going to join my family. During my stay here, I have contacted them two times.
