Some time ago, a group of former members of MEK in Albania, and their Albanian companions, who were working under the title “Association for the Support of Iranians Living in Albania (ASILA)”, sent a letter to the CEO of Najat Society, requesting to continue their activities under the title “Nejat Society Albania”.
The text of this letter is as follows:
Mr. Ebrahim Khodabandeh
CEO of Najat Society
Greetings and regards
From the beginning, the activities of the Nejat Society in Albania, under the title “Association for the Support of Iranians Living in Albania (ASILA)”, have been under the unhesitating support of the Nejat family members in Iran. Families in Iran fully supported their children in Albania, and on the other hand, those who separated from the Rajavi Cult in Albania, and their Albanian companions, have used their efforts to fulfill the human rights demands of the families.
But in our opinion, at this point in time, especially after passing the turning point of June 20, 2023, in line with the pursuit of the goals of the Nejat Society and the wishes of the families, some people created disturbances and disruptions, whose actions were against the principles of the association, and therefore ASILA has no capacity to fulfill the human rights demands of the families. Currently, we can safely say that we could not achieve the desired results in this forum.
Therefore, after coordination with the police and the Ministry of Interior of Albania, we request to agree to the new constitution and with the same goals of the human rights of families in the Nejat Society, and as the official representative of the Nejat Society in Albania. In this new form we can continue our activities to reach the desired results as soon as possible.
List of signatures:
(including 25 signatures)
Subsequently, the CEO of the Nejat Society sent the following letter to the former members of the Rajavi Cult in Albania.
Greetings and may God bless you all
On behalf of the expectant families of members trapped in the Rajavi Cult in Albania who have always supported their children, and on behalf of the board of directors of Nejat Society, I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for your sincere activities during this time.
If you do not see any obstacles or problems, and the necessary arrangements have been made, your activities under the proud banner of the great Nejat family, which has been working for the human rights of suffering families, both inside and outside Iran for two decades, is our privilege.
I hope all of us can, with a correct understanding of the turning point of June 20, 2023, which brought families much closer to their human rights goals, take more effective steps towards the satisfaction of God and our dear and respected families.
After receiving this letter, the Nejat Society Albania announced its presence in a new villa in the center of Tirana, which the address and location will be announced later:
The text of the declaration announcing the opening of the Nejat Society Albania is as follows:
Respected families, dear compatriots
With great pride and ultimate pleasure, we would like to announce the opening of the activities of the Nejat Society Albania in the center of Tirana.
As we mentioned in the letter to the CEO of Nejat Society, the previous form of our activity, namely the Association for the Support of Iranians Living in Albania (ASILA), was not compatible with the type of our activities at this time, and there were many cumbersome obstacles in terms of the statute and management which slowed down our activities.
Therefore, it was decided that with the permission of the Nejat Society, these activities will continue within the framework of a new constitution and goals under the title “Nejat Society Albania” as the official representative of the Nejat Society in Tirana to support Iranians.
We pledge to expectant families to advance our efforts and activities in this new form, without any hindrances, with multiple acceleration to realize the rightful wishes of the families.
Nejat Society Albania
