Khuzestani families write a letter to Albanian PM, expressing concern over increase of deaths amongst
the MEK members in the country
The text of the letter to Edi Rama is as follows:
Mr Edi Rama, Prime Minister of the Republic of Albania
We respectfully wish to inform you that through the websites of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO), we learned about the death of two members of this group from Khuzestan province (southwestern Iran) on Saturday, named Ms Shahin Qassemi and Mr Massoud Nasiri, from the city of Masjed-e Soleiman, who were based in MEK camp. We are deeply sorry and we are worried about the situation of other members.
The announcement of the passing away of MEK members in recent months without announcing the cause of death, especially in the context of the outbreak of coronavirus, has left the families intensely concerned. Reports from the medical staff at Mother Teresa Hospital in Albania indicate that at least three Iranian nationals have been hospitalized and at least one of them have died, possibly due to coronavirus. The Albanian branch of the World Health Organization (WHO) has expressed concern about the lack of a permit to enter the MEK camp and observe the situation of the situation there, raising concerns about the health of our relatives at the camp.
Who is responsible for these suspicious deaths? In this regard, who should announce the cause of these deaths? Why aren’t their families informed when members become ill so that they can think of a solution before they die? We, the Khuzestani families of the MEK members based in Albania, offer our condolences and sympathy to the families of these victims, and ask you, as the executive authority of the Albanian government and directly responsible for MEK members in your country, based on human duty and sense of responsibility for members’ health. Please try to end this sad tragedy of the daily death of members in your country and make the MEK officials and Maryam Rajavi, the leader of this group, accountable for the concerns of families to save the lives of their loved ones and let them to meet with the relatives to find out about their situation.
We demand that the perpetrators of negligence and indifference to the health of our loved ones be identified in any situation and in any position, and you, of course, will be held responsible as the Prime Minister of the host government.
