In a ceremony held in Samen Al-A’emeh complex in Abadan on Wednesday, a former member of the cult of Rajavi returned to his family.
Jaber Majdmian, expressing his happiness, said the situation in the MKO is inhumane.
"In 1987, I joined the MKO in Iraq but from the beginning, I realized the terrorist and inhuman nature of the group."
"I repeatedly tried to return to my family, but the MKO didn’t allow me to do so. After the fall of Saddam Hussein and due to the hatred of Iraqis for the MKO, there appeared a chance for us to return and I could come back home with the assistance of Red Cross and Nejat Association in Khuzestan Province. I believe I was born again. I try to be useful for my society."
Majdmian said that he had been treated well by Iranian security officials; he hopes he can compensate his past.
In the ceremony, Hamid Hassani, the head of Nejat Association in Khuzestan province, said: "300 former members of terrorist MKO have already returned to their families. The ouster of former Iraqi regime and the detention of Saddam Hussein weakened the MKO so that it lost the support of foreign countries and its members realized their own group’s terrorist nature."
He said the purposes of Nejat Associatin include "helping the deceived members of MKO, revealing the truth and nature of hypocrisy in the MKO and exposing the ugly face of the group in domestic and international scenes to the members".
"Former members can encourage their friends in Iraq, still with MKO, to leave the terrorist group; they can do this by radio messages, internet and phone."
We guarantee that MKO members won’t be harmed in the case of returning to the country. They will be protected by Iranian officials.
He asked MKO members’ families to make contact with their loved ones and encourage them to return.
"ID cards and Military Service Cards (that indicate they have finished military service) would be issued for former members who return to the country. The association is ready to help them if they face any problems," he added.
