Ms. Masoumeh Azad Manjiri, the sister of Maryam Azad Manjiri, who was detained in the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK) camp in Albania, wrote a letter to the World Health Organization requesting that her sister’s health be taken care of.
The text of the letter is as follows:
Representative of the World Health Organization in Albania
Greetings and best regards,
I am Masoumeh Azad Manjiri, the sister of Maryam Azad Manjiri. My sister is currently in the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK) camp in Albania. He left Iran with his wife Mohammad Norouzi 32 years ago.
We later found out that they were deceived by the forces of the MEK and transferred to the organization’s camp in Iraq. In all these 32 years, I have not met her or even heard her voice. It is the wish of every sister to be able to communicate with her loved one and be informed about her condition.
You know that even in the most horrible prisons in the world, and in the case of the most dangerous prisoners, families are allowed to call and visit, but we are deprived of this minimum possibility. Who can help us deprived families? Which international body should we take our complaint to? Who would support us?
Worst of all, I think my sister has a disease caused by Covid-19 and is living in difficult conditions, and the health facilities inside the camp are not good and they have suffered many casualties so far, because the environment there is completely closed. The MEK does not allow its members to communicate with their families, and the Albanian government does not allow Iranians to travel to that country to pursue the issue.
I desperately ask you not to neglect any action that is imagined in order to alleviate the worries of me and my expectant family, so that news of my sister will reach us and we will be able to communicate.
Please understand the feelings of me and my family and do not hesitate to pursue this issue.
Thanks and best regards,
Masoumeh Azad Manjiri
