A letter was written by the Nejat Society CEO addressed to Iran’s foreign relations office demanding that the Islamic Republic of Iran raise a complaint against the Republic of Albania with the UN Committee on Enforced Disappearances according to the UN International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance.
The text of the letter is as follows:
With regards I would like to inform you that Nejat Society is an NGO consisting of the families of the members of Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, NCR, Rajavi cult) and the former members of this cult. This society strives to establish some sort of connection between the suffering families and their loved ones trapped inside the MEK Camp in Albania.
On behalf of the families I request the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Supreme National Security Council note the situation of Enforced Disappearance of their loved ones in Albania and launch a lawsuit to complain to the responsible UN Committee against Albania according to the relevant international regulations which that country has signed up for. The families look forward to the effective actions of the government of the Islamic Republic to gain some information about their relatives.
You are aware that the MEK members were relocated illegally, without travel documents, under the supervision of the UNHCR from Iraq to Albania and were installed in a remote isolated and closed camp which is completely ruled by the cult leaders. These people have no legal status and therefore are considered stateless.
The families of the members of the MEK in Albania have no information about their next of kin and they have no means at all to contact them. The Republic of Albania has no Embassy in Tehran and they do not issue visa for Iranians. The government of Albania cooperates with the MEK to isolate the members from the outside world.
In accordance with Article 31 of the UN International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance, the Republic of Albania declares that it recognizes the competence of the Committee to receive and consider communications from or on behalf of individuals subject to its jurisdiction claiming to be victims of a violation of provisions of this Convention by Albanian State.
Additionally, in accordance with Article 32, the Republic of Albania declares that it recognizes the competence of the Committee to receive and consider communications in which a State Party claims that another State Party is not fulfilling its obligations under this Convention.
According to the above articles and with reference to the UN International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance which contains many articles that directly cover the current situation of the Albanian government in relation to the MEK, the Iranian government can on behalf of the families complain against the Republic of Albania through diplomatic channels to the UN Committee on Enforced Disappearances.
The full text of the UN International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance in 13 paged is attached.
I appreciate every effort made in this process and I am anxiously looking forward to receiving a response.
CEO – Nejat Society
