I was in the army for 2 years. Then, I said that I wanted to leave the group but they didn't accept and said that they would send me to wherever they wanted. A long time passed and they didn't say anything so I decided to express my request. They repeatedly promised to resolve my case. They said that they would send me to Europe but this never happened.
I'm Jamshid Sarayee, from the city of Agh Ghala. In 2002 I went to Turkey to find a job and there I became familiar with them (MKO). They said that they would take me to Iraq for about 6 months, to be trained and pass a process, and that then they would send me to other countries. I joined them and I was in Reception for around 7 months. We were trained to read maps, to work with weapons and …. After 7 months, I entered the army of MKO. I was in the army for 2 years. Then, I said that I wanted to leave the group but they didn't accept and said that they would send me to wherever they wanted. A long time passed and they didn't say anything so I decided to express my request. They repeatedly promised to resolve my case. They said that they would send me to Europe. Then I said that I wanted to return to Iran. They accepted and sent me to the US camp. I was in the US camp for 3 months. Then I wrote that I wanted to return to Iran that they accepted. And I was returned to Iran by Red Cross. (it's notable that Mr. Sarayee was among the recent returnees) To watch the film of interview, please click <1>here<1>.
