How are the Medicines of the Terrorist Group of the MEK supplied?
The terrorist group of the Mujahedin-e Khalq, was on the list of terrorist groups in the United States and Europe from 1997 to 2012 due to the killing of 17 thousand of innocent people, after leaving the FTO list in 2012 and with extensive consultations between the United States and Albania, finally entered Albania in 2016. This terrorist group, which has a record of more than 40 years of killing and torturing innocent people, has now lost its operational capacity and is passing its old age. According to the statistics taken from these people upon entering Albania, it shows that more than 70% of the members of this terrorist cult are between the ages of 70 and 80, and with a simple calculation, it can be understood that a person at this age is facing many diseases that require considerable medical services.
On the first day of this group’s presence in Albania, it was found that about 3 thousand people from this group have settled in Albania from Iraq, now it can be concluded that the medical services of Camp Ashraf 3 alone, require more than a few hospitals in Albania. According to a simple assessment, an average surgery in Albania requires 2,000 euros, and post-operative costs such as medicine and daily medical care should be added to this amount. Now, with the lack of some medicines in Albania and also the lack of some medicinal items, the preparation of medicines is done at a high cost for those who do not have insurance. According to these cases, the question that is raised would be, considering the old age of members of this group, where would the cost of this amount of medical services be provided? Why do these expenses and the amount of money spent on these services by the terrorist group of MEK have no source?
According to the evaluation done by different physicians and researchers on elderly people between 60 and 80 years old, obtained results show that people of this age suffer from diseases such as blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, immobility, rheumatism, neurological problems, and cancer. Now the question is that 3,000 people who are in an isolated environment that has a military status and according to the members separated from this terrorist group, there is no emotional feeling between the members and they are kept without spouses and in separate dormitories. How do they do their medical affairs? According to the information obtained from the Mother Teresa Hospital, which is located near the camp of MEK, it shows that none of the MEK members was admitted to this hospital even for a single day. It should also be taken into account that after the operation of Forough Javidan and the heavy defeat of the terrorist group of the MEK in the attack on Iran, which led to the destruction of thousands of people from this group, many of these people are disabled and have to spend the rest of their lives with a disability. As you know, disabled people must always be under medical care and use special medical equipment. In fact, Albania, with a population of about 3 million people, is not ready to provide this amount of medical equipment and special and expensive drugs for disabled people. How do these 3 thousand people get their medicine and medical equipment? Where do they perform their surgeries? In which medical service center are they hospitalized?
Two theories can be considered for this group, one is that medical equipment and medicines are not provided for the people inside the camp, and it isn’t logical that the members of this terrorist cult, who are busy with their activities and preparing fake news every day against Iran to continue their lives without medicine and medical equipment, because many of the diseases that have been mentioned before, without medicine and disease control, lead to the risk of death for people. The second case is that this amount of medicine and medical equipment be provided by the group of MEK and the companies established by this group in European countries. The second theory is more likely, because some time ago, the group of MEK organized ophthalmology services for the residents of the villages around the camp and provided contact lenses and glasses, and distributed a large number of prescription glasses to the people for free, and all these events happened inside the camp. Therefore, inside the camp, the terrorist group of the MEK has provided the possibility of medical services for its members and people living in the villages around the camp, in this case, the theory that the members receive their medical services inside the camp is proven, but members of the MEK need a large amount of medicine and it is not clear where this amount of medicine comes from. According to the review of the pharmaceutical system of Albania, it is clear that all imported drugs are distributed among pharmacies, and the interesting thing is that the MEK members did not use these pharmacies. So how do they get their medicines?
According to the information received from the Albanian customs, it was found that no medicine is allowed to be sent separately to the camp, and the medicines can only be distributed after being transferred to pharmacies and must be legally purchased from inside the pharmacy. So the main question arises: how do these 3,000 people get their medicines? The answer to this question can be expressed as, if you need medicine and you have to get it from the pharmacy and this action is not done, there is only one way left and that is to import the medicine into the camp. Since the camp of the MEK does not have any license to establish a pharmacy, the result is that the drugs needed by the camp of the MEK are smuggled into this country without the knowledge of the government of Albania, for this purpose, the government of Albania should be more sensitive to the amount of medicines smuggled into its country by the MEK.
Smuggling Medicine from Germany and Italy by the terrorist group of MEK
In the first article, it was mentioned that the terrorist group of the MEK, who were on the list of foreign terrorist organizations in America (FTO) and Europe from 1997 to 2012 due to the killing of 17 thousand innocent people, after leaving this list and with extensive consultations between the United States and Albania, finally entered Albania in 2016. This terrorist group, which has a record of more than 40 years of killing and torturing innocent people, has now lost its operational capacity and is passing its old age. According to the statistics taken from these people upon entering Albania, it shows that more than 70% of the members of this terrorist cult are between the ages of 70 and 80, and with a simple calculation, it can be understood that a person at this age suffers from many diseases that require many medical services.
On the first day of this group’s presence in Albania, it was found that about 3 thousand people from this group had settled in Albania from Iraq, now it can be concluded that the medical services of Camp Ashraf 3 alone require more than a few hospitals in Albania. Another point is the medicines that this terrorist group needs and the history of these people’s presence in pharmacies has not been recorded so far. According to the information received from the Albanian customs, it was found that no medicine is allowed to be sent separately to the camp, and the medicines can only be distributed after being transferred to pharmacies and must be legally purchased from inside the pharmacy. So the main question arises, How do these 3,000 people get their medicines? The answer to this question can be expressed as if you need medicine and you have to get it from the pharmacy and this measure is not taken, there is only one way left and that is to import the medicine into the camp. Since the camp of the MEK does not have any license to establish a pharmacy, the result is that the medicines needed by the camp of the MEK are supplied and smuggled into this country without the knowledge of the Albanian government.
In this article, we have tried to express significant points about this terrorist group with field research from Albania and the previous country where the MEK lived, Iraq. The terrorist group of the MEK, according to the records obtained from them in Iraq, mostly have diseases for which medicines, according to the research carried out in Albania, are not available in this country. Among the common diseases that appear in the medical records of the members of the MEK group are Alzheimer’s, severe osteoporosis, diabetes, various cancers, digestive system problems, heart problems, and high blood pressure. Since the terrorist group of the MEK has always been a puppet or a military tool for the Western governments and for that reason, it has participated in military operations against its country and the people of Iraq, it has certainly received a lot of damage from these operations to the extent that after the operations of Forough Javidan, Anfal, Morvarid 1 and 2, a large number MEK members have suffered physical and mental disabilities and have to use rare medicines to control or treat themselves. According to research, most of these medicines are not available in Albania, and to supply them, they must be imported from the U.S., England, Germany, Italy, and India. According to the investigation of medicine import in Albania, it seems that this country has not imported medicines for these diseases due to the ban on the import of some medicines, so as a result, these items must be smuggled away from the eyes of the Albanian government, but how does the terrorist group of MEK import their medicines into Camp Ashraf 3 in Manza?
The answer is simple, under the guise of humanitarian measures such as importing contact lenses and eyeglasses for the residents of the villages and under the pretext of helping the needy people in the vicinity of the camp, this terrorist group has smuggled its medicine. Based on the investigation, the lenses and glasses sent to Albania were produced in China, and with a simple look at the glasses and medical lenses, you can see its brand as Wenzhow M&I Eyewear Co., LTD, and the country of their manufacture, but the shipment first went from China to Germany then to Italy and from there it entered Albania. Well, the question is why a shipment of medical equipment that comes from China should go to Germany, then to Italy, and then enter Albania? The answer is that the terrorist group of MEK has registered several companies and associations in Italy and Germany to provide medical and pharmaceutical equipment and send them to the Mujahedin-e Khalq camp in Albania. For example, the Association of Iranian Political Refugees living in Italy and the Association of Iranian Youth in Italy are two associations that use the guise of the association to do money laundering and finance the MEK to buy medical equipment. Previously, many money-laundering activities were carried out in Germany, England, and France, and many cases of these activities were revealed in these countries, examples of which were the identification of an orphanage in England, which used the guise of an orphanage to separate children from their families, who were members of this cult, then they transferred them to European countries such as England, Germany, France and so on. These charities received money from the government and international organizations and this money was sent to the headquarters of the MEK. Maryam Rajavi herself was arrested in her home in France for the crime of money laundering along with a large number of MEK members.
The terrorist group of MEK has proven many times that they will continue their terrorist and illegal actions in any way; it does not matter if the Albanian government restricts them or not, history has proven that they will continue their actions for years. a few years ago, by separating children from the members of this cult, they used them for money laundering in Europe under the guise of orphaned children, and now they smuggle their medicines under the guise of supporting the people of the villages around the camp in Albania. From the records of medicine smuggling by MEK, which was also included in the media, we can refer to the news of the Italian news agency LaRedazione with the title “I vaccini migrano via mare, il primo caso di fuga di Astrazeneca, da Bari verso l’Albania” on May 23, 2021, mentioned about the arrest of 2 of MEK members while smuggling vaccines to Albania by the Italian Coast Guard. These two people were 73-year-old Qasim Farhadi and 70-year-old Abdolrahim Orangi, both of whom were members of the MEK in Albania, who were at the sea border of Italy with Albania and arrested before leaving the border of Italy by the coast guard of this country along with the cargo of smuggled vaccines.
These are only a part of the chain of medicine trafficking by the terrorist group of MEK, which was mentioned in this article, and the Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, and the anti-terrorism court of this country are requested to intensify monitoring the entry and exit of smuggling equipment to the headquarters of the MEK in Manza to prevent drug smuggling to Albania. Albania should know that the arrest of the MEK members who have political asylum in Albania, which is also on the borders of Italy, is considered a danger for this country, because every time the people of this terrorist group are arrested, Albania will be one step away from the European Union.
