Three MKO members, after escaping from Ashraf Base in Iraq, sought asylum from regional Kurdish government. According to International Service of "Baztab", weekly "Hawlati", publishing this report, has released the names of these three people as Davood Haidari, Gholam Gholi Oghlo, and Alireza Moghaddami. These defectors described their experiences of the organization and why they escaped in a press conference. They said: two weeks ago, we escaped from Ashraf base. We were walking from night to morning until we reached Khalis. There, we took a car and went to Baghdad, then to Karbala and Suleimaniah. We were among Mojahedin for nearly 10 years. We were trained to be able to work with different kinds of weapons such as armored vehicle, artillery and missiles. A few days before US invasion on Iraq, Masoud gathered all of us and said, "If Mojahedin go under attack, you should prepare yourself for a big attack to Iran." But when Ashraf was bombed, there came no orders. When Iraq surrendered, we were told that attacking Iran has been cancelled. Then, there were talks between the US and MKO, and they took us to another place. These three MKO members explained the reason for their escape as follows: "we believe MKO is not a popular group and we had no hope in it. It became clear for us that all its claims were lies. This organization suppresses all kinds of criticism in a non-democratic way. Before this time, we couldn't run away, since they captured us and sent us to Abu Gharib prison. They tortured us. They didn't let anyone leave Abu Gharib prison. We had to stay there. About seeking asylum from Kurdistan, they said: since Suleimaniah is securer than other cities, we came here. When we were in Baghdad and Karbala, we didn't dare to show up. When we came here in Suleimaniah we wanted to introduce ourselves to UN in order to be sent to a foreign country, because Mojahedin had a negative and bad role in relation with Kurds since 1991. We witnessed MKO's forces involvement in suppression of Kurds. However, here in Kurdistan we are not much frightened. Of course, if we knew UN has no offices in Kurdistan we wouldn’t come here, since we are afraid of being extradited to Iranian forces. Even now were are afraid of that, because we are not sure of the way they will treat us.
