Dear Mr. Kubiš
I need to offer some clarifications in regards with the letter my son, Mohammad Reza Iranpur, to you, which was published in Iran Probe website (www.iran-efshagari.com), belonging to People’s Mujahedin of Iran (Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MEK)), on June 17, 2016.
We, the members of Iranpur family, have been deprived from visiting our two sons, Mohammad Reza and Ahmad Reza, and our repeated requests to international organizations and also the Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization for visiting them have remained unanswered. Now, after our recent three trips to Iraq and appearance in from of Camp Liberty in this year, Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization has published a letter attributed to my elder son, Mohammad Reza. However, considering the way we know our child and also the testimony of several people who have been freed from Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization and their claims of duress mental and physical pressures on people living in Camp Liberty and the abuse of the organization through publishing letters and statements in their names, I have to inform you that the aforementioned letter is not written by my child and the claims of Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization in this letter are utter lies.
We have an average educated urban family and we have no political affiliation of any governmental and non-governmental groups or institutions, and all of requests for unsurveilled meeting with our loved ones and also the trips to Iraq, have been planned and conducted on our own and the only help Iranian government has facilitated the process of getting a visa, which is a prerequisite for leaving the country and all Iranians have this privilege. Hence, the claim of Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization in this letter and affiliating us with the Iranian intelligence service is pure lie. It has to be mentioned that our message to the residents of Camp Liberty and out two children in our repeated visits to Camp Liberty has been love, peace and invitation for unsurveilled meeting and it has never contained any threats.
Based on testimony of Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization detached members, all individuals in Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization are denied the right to access free information, unbiased news agencies, the Internet and cellphones. Hence, my child could not have been able to write and publish such a letter.
This family denies what has been claimed in the published letter on the relationship between our children and supporters of Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization and the tendency towards joining this organization and we state that out children exited Iran and deceived by a person named Sajjad Sepehri in order to migrate to Europe or Canada, while they were kidnapped by the origination’s members and transferred to Iraq.
In that letter, Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization has claimed that the real family of the Camp Liberty residents are prisoned in Iranian prisons and we are not their family. We hereby state that we have never been scrutinized, punished or prisoned by the Iranian government because of presence of our children in Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization’s camps in Iraq, so far and we are ready to perform the DNA test to prove our family ties with Mohammad Reza and Ahmad Reza.
However, I would like to ask you why Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization publishes pure lies and accuses the family members of the residents of Camp Liberty of things, instead of letting our children meet us.
It is obvious that if such the opportunity for unsurveilled meetings arises, their lies and accusations will be surfaced and our children will not hesitate even a second to come back to their families.
Mr. Kubiš, at the end, we, members of Iranpur family, again insist on arranging an unsurveilled meeting with my children in your presence, which is my right, and ask for your assistance.
We, members of Iranpur family, express our concern about the lives of Mohammad Reza and Ahmad Reza, since we believe that their lives are at risk due to the threat from Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization in order to prevent us from travelling to Iraq and our appearance in from of Camp Liberty. Hereby, we state that we consider your responsible for protecting the health and life of my two children.
With the hope for your endless success in your benevolent humanitarian efforts
Members of Iranpur Family:
‘Abdolhoseyn Iranpur the father, Tahere Taqipur the mother, ‘Abdolhamid Iranpur the brother, Mahmonir, Homa, Narges and Rahele Iranpur the sisters of Mohammad Reza and Ahmad Reza Iranpur
