Mr. Homayoon Kohzadi could manage to leave Rajavi’s cult. Arriving in free world he declared his separation from Mujahedin Khalq Organization. The following is his statement:
I’m Homayoon Kohzadi. I entered Iraqi territory in 1996 and wasted 15 years of my life in MKO because I thought I was in the right path but after a few months, I found out that I had made a big mistake.
I realized that there was no mark of that democracy and freedom MKO propaganda claimed. I decided to leave the organization. I declared my defection but they didn’t accept. They told me that I had to be imprisoned in MKO prison for two years and then in an Iraqi prison for 8 years. Then Iraqi government would decide for my fate. So I got forced stay in the organization because I knew about the terrible conditions of Iraqi prison, AbuQuraib.
I also tried to leave the group several more times and every time they reacted by holding meetings [of self-criticism] for me.
My departure after 15 years!
You definitely wonder how I could be able to leave. After the fall of Saddam Hussein, Iraqi new government started interviewing MKO members. I used the opportunity to express my willingness for leaving the Camp to the Iraqi official. Fortunately I succeeded to leave the group.
I want to warn others about the trap I was captured in. I want to warn them about false propaganda of MKO. When I arrived in MKO; I thought I could leave it whenever I wanted but in fact nobody dares to say a single word about leaving. If you express your defection, they will mobilize the whole members to insult or even beat you in their so-called meetings. They threaten you with two years of jail in Camp Ashraf and eight years in Abu Quraib … I myself witnessed a lot of examples of such maltreatments.
Today I’m really happy for my life in a free world and I can offer my experiences to those who are at risk of being caught in Rajavi’s trap.
