On February 25th, another group of Mujahedin-e Khalq hostages’ families arrived at Camp Liberty gate. The families’ only demand was to visit with their family members enslaved at Camp Liberty, Iraq by the Cult leaders. They have had no contact with their loved ones for many years. They are worried about the destiny of their family members at MKO Cult camp.
The families picketed in front of the Camp Liberty for several days. While crying, the suffering families called their loved ones vociferously.
The families actively tried to convince the brainwashed members to liberate themselves front the Cult’s physical and mental barriers.
Ms. Iranpour whose brothers are held hostages by MKO leaders at Camp Liberty and has several times travelled to Iraq, evaluated the families’ trip to Iraq as favorable. Referring to the families’ revelations to the UNHCR representatives and journalists, Ms. Iranpour reiterated: “the recent trip [to Iraq] has had many achievements. She said despite the MKO Cult leaders’ efforts to confront the effects of family members affections on residents, still some of the residents replied to the families’ passions by waving hands and sending kisses.
