Legal deputy of former members of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) published an open letter to the Albanian authorities. Samad Eskandari, former member of the MEK and the representative of the group defectors in Iran’s judiciary system, asked for the release of six detained members of the Association for the Support of Iranians Living in Albania (ASILA).
Eskandari suggests that these 6 people have been detained by the Albanian immigration Police as a result of a false flag operation launched by the MEK. He states, “the Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama has violated his political and social prestige at the cost of complicity with the devil Maryam Rajavi”.
According to Eskandari, who endured the oppressive ruling of Massoud and Maryam Rajavi in long years of membership in their cult, the history of the group and his own experience are evidences to prove that “the notorious and criminal MEK cult has no legitimacy among the Iranian public opinion and thus being a collaborator in the MEK’s bloody accord will bear no fruit for the Albanian authorities except disaster and destruction”.
He refers to the MEK’s siding with Iraqi former dictator Saddam Hussein. “For over three decades, Saddam Hussein was hand in hand with Massoud Rajavi,” he writes. “Their alliance led to the killing of a large number of dissident members of the group in Camp Ashraf, Iraq. Saddam would imprison and torture those members of the MEK who opposed Massoud Rajavi and wanted to leave his cult”.Criticizing the policies of the Albanian government to imprison members of ASILA, Eskandari warns the Albanian Prime Minister to learn lessons from the fate of Saddam Hussein.
Hassan Heirani, Gholamreza Shekari, Ali Hajari, Mehdi Soleimani, Hassan Shahbaz and Ehsan Bidi have been detained by the Albanian immigration and border department for over 5 weeks without being accused of any crime.
