The mother of Taymaz Vahedi a hostage of the Mujahedin-e Khalq calls on the international community to aid the release of her son from the group.
In 2001, Taymaz was a young boy when he was smuggled to Iraq by the MEK recruiters. He had gone to Turkey to work in the hope of building a better life but he fell into the trap of the MEK as well as a large number of other Iranian youth in Turkey, during those years.
Since then, Taymaz has not contacted his family any more. His family only got to know about him from defectors of the MEK. His mother is very sick now but at least she knows that her son is alive and resides in Albania. She has been looking forward to see his son or at least hear his voice on phone during the 22 past years.
The Vahedis have so far sent several letters to the international human rights bodies and the Albanian authorities calling for investigations on the violation of the most basic human rights of members inside the cult-like group of Maryam Rajavi.
Human rights bodies, the International community and the Albanian authorities should provide the conditions for Taymaz to contact his languishing mother so that she –who has longed to hear her child’s voice for more than two decades– can achieve her desire.
