Journalist: MKO terrorist group trafficked 400 own members to Europe

probably Daesh members too

An Albanian historian and journalist says the country’s police have alerted the US embassy that members of the so-called Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO), an anti-Iran terrorist cult, are involved in various criminal activities in Europe, including human trafficking, with possible links to the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group.

Olsi Jazexhi, citing Albanian media reports, said in a tweet on Thursday that some MKO operatives, headed by the terrorist group’s leader, Maryam Rajavi, and based in a camp near the capital, Tirana, have attempted to traffic over 400 of the group’s own members to France.

Jazexhi added that a number of the terrorist cult’s members have been detained for trafficking people from the Middle East to Europe, who were probably Daesh members.

“Good news for Iran, bad news for #FreeIran, #MaryamRajavi terrorists in #Albania. Albanian police have alerted @USEmbassyTirana that the mojaheeden have trafficked 400 #mojaheden to #France and probably members of DAESH to Europe,” the Albanian journalist wrote.

Jazexhi went on to say that some senior MKO members have been also arrested while trying to traffic drugs to Italy, with police having prosecuted another member over theft charges.

“Sister in law of #MaryamRajavi – sister of @Abrichamtchi head of #NCR committee against terrorism – Narges Abrichamtchi has been arrested trafficking drugs to #Italy. US, #Israel & Saudis should reign down their terrorists in #Albania! France be careful! 400 jihadis are in Paris,” Jazexhi added.

In another string of tweets later on Thursday, the journalist said in one instance, the MKO cult “forced Gazeta Shqiptarja to take offline its article” about their drug and human trafficking arrests in Albania.

MKO, #MaryamRajavi gang has just forced Gazeta Shqiptarja to take offline its article about mojaheden drug & human trafficking arrests in #Albania. My sources tell me that MKO has paid or is promising to pay 50,000 EURO for the removal of the police report. Attaching originals pic.twitter.com/tfjnJ0MAlY

Olsi noted that he has an official document from the office of Tirana Prosecutor, which proves that one of the notorious MKO commanders, called Mohammad Sadat Darbandi, has been arrested for robbing a pharmacy in Tirana.

The journalist then said that Albanian prosecutors have already filed 100 criminal cases against the MKO on charges of major drug smuggling operations and connection to #Ndrangheta.

Olsi noted that there are also many reports that reveal “the connections of #MaryamRajavi, #FreeIran mafia with Italian mafia.”

He added that Albanian opposition newspapers are blaming the US embassy in Tirana for providing protection for the MKO criminal cult.

According to an official document seen by Albania Newspaper Exit in December last year, two members of the MKO, along with Albanian and Greek accomplices, were apprehended for direct involvement in human trafficking.

The documents said the criminal activities happened between 2019 and 2021.

An official source, who requested to remain anonymous, told Exit that the documents claim that information on these crimes has been handed over to the US Embassy in Tirana, and that the Albanian paper has contacted the mission for comments but no formal response has been given.

A political analyst says the West uses terrorist groups such as the anti-Iran MKO to advance its destructive agendas.

After it was founded more than 50 years ago, the MKO launched a campaign of bombings and assassinations in Iran. Out of the nearly 17,000 Iranians killed in terrorist attacks over the past four decades, about 12,000 have fallen victim to the group’s acts of terror.

The ill-famed terror group is currently based in Albania, where it enjoys freedom of activity after being delisted by the European Union and the United States in 2009 and 2012 respectively.

Regardless of its disrepute around the world, the MKO has in recent years held numerous big events, attended by senior American, Israeli and Saudi officials, including former US Senator John McCain, former mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani, former US national security advisor John Bolton, former US Senator Joe Lieberman, and former director of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence agency Turki bin Faisal Al Saud.

Ericsson says employees may have bribed Daesh in Iraq

The new revelation comes after previous reports indicated that in addition to the MKO, some major Western companies have been also involved in illegal activities pertaining to other terrorist groups, which have been widely condemned by the international community for their crimes, including the Daesh terrorist group.

In one such case, Sweden’s Ericsson has been accused of graft in Iraq when Daesh was active in the Arab country.

The chief executive of Swedish telecoms giant Ericsson said on Wednesday that some of its employees in Iraq may have bribed Daesh members to gain access to certain roads in the country.

“What we see is that people have paid for road transport through areas controlled by terrorist organizations, including ISIS (Daesh),” Borje Ekholm told Swedish financial daily Dagens Industri.

“With the means we have, we haven’t been able to determine the final recipients of these payments,” he added.

Ekholm made the comments hours after the Swedish company released a statement late on Tuesday admitting “serious breaches of compliance rules and the company’s code of business ethics” regarding Ericsson employees, vendors and suppliers in Iraq between 2011 and 2019.

The statement said an internal investigation conducted in 2019 had revealed “evidence of corruption-related misconduct.”

Several employees left the company as a result of the probe, “and multiple other disciplinary and other remedial actions were taken,” Ericsson added in the statement.

The company said it had chosen to disclose details of the now two-year-old investigation due to “detailed media inquiries from Swedish and international news outlets.”

Ericsson’s share price tumbled by more than 12 percent in opening trade on Wednesday on the Stockholm stock exchange after the news.

Albanian police later rejected the allegations.
