When Mohsen was born, his father was not there to embrace him; his father has not been with them for the rest of his life either.
In 1987, Mohsen Yunesi’s father, Mohammad Hadi left his pregnant wife behind in Iran to join the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO/ MEK/ PMOI/ Cult of Rajavi) in Iraq and he never returned.
When Mohsen was eighteen, he got to know that his father was in Camp Ashraf, Iraq. He began looking for him and while searching he got familiar with Nejat Society.
He traveled to Iraq to visit his father in Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty, Iraq. Mohsen and other families of MEK members who had traveled to Iraq were never allowed to meet their loved ones behind the bars of MEK camps.
“You deceived my father and deprived me of his love,” Mohsen rebukes the MEK leaders. “What creatures you are! I have been languishing for hugging my dad for my entire life.”
When his efforts for visiting his father were not successful, Mohsen started writing letters to the International human rights. He also has published several letters addressing his father asking him to leave the group and come back home. “Why don’t you release yourself?”, Mohsen asks his father in one of the letters. “Why do you stay with people who are hated by Iranians?”
After the group was relocated in Albania, he wrote letters to the Albanian authorities demanding them to grant permission to families of MEK members to travel to Albania to visit their loved ones.
“The Albanian government knows that MEK members are taken as hostages by the group leaders,” Mohsen Yunesi says in his recent talks with Nejat Society. “However, they do not consider the MEK as a terrorist group. The group leaders have bribed the authorities to ignore our rights. Where are human rights bodies? I just want my father. I have nothing to do with politics.”
