In the name of human rights
The honorable Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama,
My name is Sarfaraz Rahimi, a member of the Association for the Support of Iranians Living in Albania (ASILA). I am an Iranian but I have lived in the mother land of my wife Erisa Rahimi and my son Ermolindo for seven years. I have seen nothing but love and compassion from the Albanian people.
Unfortunately, as members of ASILA , we have a lot of untold painful stories that we should tell the world. While I am writing this letter, six of my friends are detained in the detention center in Karreç. They have not committed any crime to violate the Albanian laws.
Please take in it to consideration that we have been relocated in Albania under the agreement between the Albanian government, the US government and the UN High Commissioner of Refugees, in order to enjoy a normal life, away from violence and discrimination but unluckily we have faced and witnessed many adversities because we have just revealed the true nature of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK).
Is it a crime to speak of our past? If it is so, what happens to freedom of expression?
