Ameneh Khatoon is an elderly mother from Fooman, a town in the North of Iran. She lost two sons in the eight years war imposed by the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein against the Iranian nation. The first son was killed but the second one is Azim who has been a hostage for over 35 years now. “My son was taken as a hostage in a dirty, inhuman deal”
Azim MohammadAlizadeh was an Iranian soldier serving in the Iran-Iraq war when he was taken as a war prisoner by Iraq forces. He was captive in the horrible jails run by the regime of Saddam Hussein. And, Saddam was the financial and military sponsor of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO/ MEK/ PMOI/ Cult of Rajavi). Eventually. The agents of the MEK were permitted by Saddam Hussein military commanders to show up in the camps of POWs to recruit Iranian soldiers.
MEK agents succeeded to deceive several tortured and labored Iranian soldiers, including Azim, who were fed up with the awful situation of Iraqi camps. However, their arrival in the MEK camps was the start of a long-life physical and mental torture under the Cult of Rajavi.
Ameneh Khatoon and her family have taken any legal action possible in order to find a way to visit their beloved son. When the MEK was located in Iraq, they traveled to the country and picketed in front of the group’s notorious base, Camp Ashraf, but they were not allowed to visit Azim. They have so far written several letters of complaints against the leaders of Mujahedin Khalq calling for the international community to aid them contact Azim.
“I ask the Albanian authorities to take action to help me contact my son, at least through a video call”, Ameneh Khatoon writes. “I appreciate any action in this way and I hope no family suffer such a separation.”
