They offered conditions: “If you want to go you should remain in Exit section for 2 years and then we would give you to the Iraqi Estekhbarat (former Iraqi security service) and you should stay in prison for 8 years. Then you can return to Iran.”
I am Amir Baluchi, from the city of Iranshahr. I left Iran illegally in 2000 and went to the UAE. I worked there for a short time and I was introduced to a member of MKO by one of my friends. That member told me that he would take me to Iraq and had to stay there for 6 months to pass a process and after that I could go to Europe to find a job. But when we went to Iraq, we found that it was all lie. There, in Iraq, I didn’t accept their methods and I announced that I wanted to return. But they didn’t let me go. They offered conditions: “If you want to go you should remain in Exit section for 2 years and then we would give you to the Iraqi Estekhbarat (former Iraqi security service) and you should stay in prison for 8 years. Then you can return to Iran.” Until a year and seven months ago, I was with Mojahedin; not by my will, but by force. My escape efforts failed until the US invaded Iraq and Iraqi government was overthrown and we could save ourselves. We took shelter by the American side. We stayed at the US camp for about a year and six months. It was not bad there with Americans. They had promised to send us to Europe but we thought that returning to Iran is better because our parents are here. Now that we have returned, we see that the claims of some people who said that we would be killed if we return was completely wrong. When entering Iran, intelligence agents of Iran received us very warmly. Islamic republic has issued pardon for us. We are going to have our normal lives.
