MKO examined medically all new recruits; there were blood tests and other things. After medical examinations, they found that my sister-in-law was pregnant. They told her that she had come to an organization where there was no life and husband and asked her to abort her child!!
Part of interview with Mr. Javaherian * Mr. Javaherian, earlier you talked about your brother who had come to Iraq with his wife and things that happened to him. What was between your brother and his wife that the MKO reacted? - My brother came to Iraq after me, with his wife- who's my cousin. After the came to Ashraf Camp, the MKO separated from each other. His wife was taken to a unit in Badi' Zadegan garrison, where I was. MKO examined medically all new recruits; there were blood tests and other things. After medical examinations, they found that my sister-in-law was pregnant. They told her that she had come to an organization where there was no life and husband and asked her to abort her child!! They focused their efforts to convince her to do so but she refused. When they saw that they can't convince her, they were forced to take her back to Iran and promised to support her. "Don't worry about your husband, we support you, don't think about the costs of life," they said to her. Anyway, she returned to Iran and it's now five years that my sister-in-law has no information from her husband and I wonder if he knows he has a child?! He has a girl, now 4, called Negin. She is growing while she has no father. This has caused her embarrassment among other children. She always asks her mother about her father. Now my sister-in-law asks me about my brother and asks "when will he come back?" "They claimed that they fight for Khalq (people), then aren't we from the khalq? Isn't my child from the khalq? Why did they do this to me and many others? Why should I have a life like this?" she asks. This is only one example of family and children issues in the MKO. There are many others and I'm sure you hear about them. * So, is the MKO supporting his wife now, as it had promised? - They have no contact with her. Their claims were all lies. Anyway, a member of the "Khalq" is in trouble, you (MKO) know that you have caused separation of father from children, or husbands from wives, now why don't you account for it? * Mr. Javaherian, we want to speak with your sister-in-law, is it possible? - Sure, I have to talk to her first because this even has been a big shock for her and reminding her of this horrible memory is really difficult. * She can call for the help of Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch in her husband's case. Of course, I hope international human rights organizations recognize the severity of these cases and do something. - Yes, that's why I have tried to help because when you look at the condition of this child, it's difficult; when she becomes sick, someone should support her and you know my family's not at a position to help. * How's your relation with them? - I've not gone to meet them, even for once; for instance, the day before yesterday, she called me and asked me about her husband's condition while she cried. I didn't know what to say.
