The statement issued by MKO defectors on Mohammadi Family

We, named below, believing in the freedom of speech and tolerance, withdrawing the present actions and believes of people and politicians, without any political interest, focusing on humanity and our previous cooperation with MKO and regarding our personal experiences with MKO, declare that:  A: gradually after the residence in Iraq, criticizing the leaders (Masud and Maryam Rajavi) and their policies became impossible.

Following the long residence in Iraq, insisting on one’s interests, opinions and critics were considered as anti-revolutionary action and were oppressed seriously.   B: they organizationally encounter the private talks where the Mujahed friends were giving opinions within the organization. Every member had to submit a written report to his responsible, on the details of his talks. In the organization control and scrutinize of opinion were considered as normal and revolutionary. C: MKO’s leader consider the emotional contacts of family members as an obstacle to the policies of the organization and to the fall of Islamic regime and tries to weaken such contacts in any way. D: there is no possibility to access and transfer news, newpaper, T.V … freely, inside the MKO in Iraq.

Any news was canalyzed by the organization and it wasn’t possible to access the free world. According to the mentioned experiences, the position taken by Somayeh Mohammadi who has declared that she has “chosen living in Camp Ashraf on her own will’’ clearly opposes our personal experiences.  While we respect everyone’s right including Somayeh’s right to choose her place of residence freely according to UN human rights charter, we ask MKO’s leadership to publish any document that they have, on Mostafa and Mahboubeh Mohamamdi’s link to Islamic Republic , so as to inform Iranian people.

Otherwise they should allow Somayeh who according to her father, mother and brother was taken to Ashraf when she was under legal age and now is under the psychological pressure and the news absolutism, to be transferred out of Ashraf to decide independently.  UN human Rights Charter, article 12 : No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks. We demand MKO’s leadership and Islamic Republic regime that  A: they respect international laws on women, children and civilians and execute them  B: they respect UN Human Rights Charter.
