They threatened us that in the case of deciding to leave the MKO, one should stay for two years in “exit section” and then he would be delivered to Iraqi security officials. “They’d take you to Abu Ghraib to force you provide them with intelligence,” they said
I’m Mohsen Sahhaf, born in the city of Tabriz. In 2002 I was recruited by MKO. They took me to Iraq under the name of “job” and “working” but I had problems with them as soon as I entered “Camp Ashraf”. They threatened us that in the case of deciding to leave the MKO, one should stay for two years in “exit section” and then he would be delivered to Iraqi security officials. “They’d take you to Abu Ghraib to force you provide them with intelligence,” they said. So, we had no way to leave. We stayed there for 16 months until the US attacked Iraq and we thought again of leaving the group. At that time, I wrote a request (to leave the MKO) and handed it to the officials of the group. I said that I didn’t want to stay. Two days later, they sent me to “exit section” and I went to the US-run camp. I was with Americans for 18 months, and I was under pressure. Americans promised to help us but they did nothing…. It took 18 months. Once, I committed suicide but they saved me. Then, I contacted my family and decided to return to Iran. And now I’m home. MKO is a group comprised of crazy people. I believe that their leaders have completely lost their minds. They don’t know what they’re doing. Their analyses are baseless. They keep people there by force and by difference excuses. There was even a man, Kaveh PourHamdani, who had left the MKO. He was in US camp and tried to bring his wife there. He repeatedly wrote letters to US officials and asked to meet his wife. But the MKO refused to accept. Even once they brought a paper and claimed that his wife had written that she didn’t want to meet him. Kaveh protested and said that it was not his wife’s handwriting. There was a US general who came and said to Kaveh that he wanted to meet his wife. He agreed to take Kaveh with himself but said that Kaveh should stay away from her. General talked to his wife while he was inside a car 200 meters away. General came back and said that his wife didn’t want to come. Kaveh said he needed something to show his father-in-law, in order to prove that his daughter has not returned. “But I can’t do that because I understood from the way your wife was talking that what she said were not her own words. I mean she was forced to say such words. Those words had been dictated to her,” General said. However, they still tried to manage a meeting for both. Now, Kaveh is in US-run camp and her wife is in MKO. Kaveh has not decided to leave there. He said he’d wait to see what happens to his wife. He gave me the phone number of his brother. He asked me to tell his brother to go to Iraq with the family of his brother’s wife, in order to take her out of Camp Ashraf. She was really under pressure. I had seen the photo they had taken when they had joined the MKO; I also saw the photo taken by US forces. She had become very very weak. To watch the film of interview, please click <1>here<1>.
