They said: "there's no way for returning and you should stay in Exit section for 2 years and then we would deliver you to Iraqi government. Then it would do anything it wants with you."
I am Mohammed Reza Faal, from the city of Tehran. I left the country in 2002 and went to Turkey. I had gone to Turkey to find a job there but I was caught in the circle of Mojahedin-e khalq supporters. They sent me to Iraq under the name of money and good equipment in Europe. They said that I had to be trained in Iraq for some months and then it was up to me whether to stay or not. They said that they had offices in all countries and that I could work for them. I went to Iraq. But all they said was false and that there's nothing about money and job in Europe. So, I took position against them and said that they should return me. They said: "there's no way for returning and you should stay in Exit section for 2 years and then we would deliver you to Iraqi government. Then it would do anything it wants with you." I had no way but to stay there; until the US invaded Iraq and everything was disrupted. After the US invasion, we said that we should be submitted to US forces; "you have no authority; earlier, you said Saddam is your master and now Americans are," we said. Our quarrels with them forced them to submit us to the US forces. After that, we just wanted to return to our lives. We wanted to return to Iran and to live for ourselves. First Americans said that they would send us to a country we choose. But we found that going to Europe is not easy. I was in the US camp for 18 months. No Europe, no equipments. 7 months ago I gave my request to leave them and return to my country. And now I'm here in Iran and I would be with my family in 2 or 3 days.
