Most of members have told US forces that they are not satisfied of joining MKO and want to leave the organization, but US forces keep them in a separate camp under the control of MKO officials
Ali Ghashghavi, former member of MKO, referring to the recent article of Newsweek in which the involvement of MKO in financial scandal of former Iraqi regime was revealed, says:
"We were fully aware of these issues and the fact that Mojahedin helped Saddam in suppressing Shiites and Kurds is not new. But the fact is that most of Mojahedin members have said to US forces (during interrogation) that they regret joining Mojahedin and now want to leave it, but US forces keep them in a separate camp run by assistance of MKO officials. These members are not allowed to do what they want."
Ghashghavi said: "We want the US to let them decide and return."
He also asked other members of the organization to use this opportunity and decide independently.
