Reza Eslami, former member of the Mujahedin-e Khalq asked the Albanian Prime minister to release his detained friends. He is a member of the Association for the Support of Iranians Living in Albania (ASILA) of which 6 members have been detained by the Albanian immigration Police since last month.
Reza Eslami declares his protest against the arrest of these 6 people in an open letter to the Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama. He states that his friends have not committed any crime but they have exposed the true nature of the Cult of Rajavi or MEK.
Reza Eslami was kept under mental and physical pressure of the MEK for 29 years and as a defector of Rajavi’s cult of personality, he is considered a witness of MEK’s inhumane attitude toward its own members.
“The cult of Rajavi can not tolerate the presence of ASILA in Albania so it has to conspire with the Albanian government to prevent ASILA from exposing the truth about what is going on inside the group,” Eslami wrote in his letter to Edi Rama asking for liberation of his friends from Karrec detention center, north of Tirana.
Hassan Heirani, Gholamreza Shekari, Ali Hajari, Mehdi Soleimani, Hassan Shahbaz and Ehsan Bidi have been detained by the Albanian immigration and border department for over 5 weeks without being accused of any crime.
