They showed me a photo and said that this is you, an agent of intelligence service. I said that I didn't know that person. Anyway, they kept me in their prisons for 21 days. Once, Hassan Nezam (from MKO's counterintelligence) put his pistol on my head and said that I had to admit
I'm Ismael Talebi, from the city of Bonab. In the Augst of 2002 I went to Turkey and joined the MKO. I was introduced to the organization by a supporter of that organization who took me there under the name of money and job. He said that I would have to stay there in MKO for 2 years and a half and then I would be sent to Europe after trainings. "There in Europe, you only have to support us, take part in our demonstrations. We would give you car, house, wife. You would marry daughter of a supporter and then you would form a good life for yourself," they said. I went to turkey and then to Iraq. After 10 or 12 days, I was sent to Reception section. At first they suspected me. They showed me a photo and said that this is you, an agent of intelligence service. I said that I didn't know that person. Anyway, they kept me in their prisons for 21 days. Once, Hassan Nezam (from MKO's counterintelligence) put his pistol on my head and said that I had to admit. Finally, I said: "I stay in this room and you can do anything you want. Go and investigate my case to know that I have not come from intelligence agency of Iran. You yourself brought me here." After long quarrels they sent me again to Reception section and said that they are keeping an eye on me. When the US attacked Iraq, they spread us on the ground. After 25 days to a month, we returned to Ashraf Camp. There, I said again that I couldn't stay. I asked them to send me back to my family… but they refused to accept. A person called "Ahad" was also from my city. He didn't let me put pressure on MKO officials. I didn't participate in their weekly purification sessions. Anyway, after long discussion and quarrels I wrote my request and they had to accept it. I smoke cigarette in public and gathered others around myself, and they reported continuously. Once, Zhila Deihim called me and said that I could go but suggested to stay in the US-run camp and not to go to iran. I said that my life was none of their business. She promised to visit me in the camp and buy me the things I needed in the case I don't go to Iran. But God helped me and after 22 days in US-run camp I returned to Iran.
