Ali (Peyman) Fatehi was a soldier at Iran-Iraq war when 1988 he was taken as a war prisoner by Iraqi forces. Supported by Saddam Hussein, the authorities of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO/ MEK/ PMOI/ Cult of Rajavi) used to deceive Iranian soldiers to join their group in POW camps. Peyman was deceived to join the MEK, probably in the hope of a better life condition than the disastrous one of Iraqi camps. However, he has been taken as a hostage by the group for over 35 years now.
His parents made a lot of efforts to visit him in Camp Ashraf, Iraq, but they were never allowed by the group authorities to meet their son. They picketed in front of the gates of Camp Ashraf several times, calling the name of their son, showing his name and picture on placards. Unfortunately, it did not work. In response, the MEK leaders labeled them as the agents of the Quds force of the Iranian government.
Ten years ago, Peyman’s father died while he was awaiting his beloved son. His mother, Mehangiz Rezaiee still suffers this long-life separation. She is expecting the return of his son from Albania to Iran. She publishes letters and voice messages, on the Internet, for her imprisoned son. She hopes that Peyman will receive the message someday.
In her recent voice message, the heartbroken mother asks Peyman to recall his sweet memories of home, his friends and family. Her desperate voice is an evidence for the horrific human rights violation that is taking place in the MEK.
