Hejrat and Forough Moezzi, two sisters in Ashraf 3 in Albania write about their father’s 15 years of living under torture and pressure in the prisons of the Iranian regime and the role of agents of this regime in Albania.
Has anyone been closer to you than your family? Who is your support cares for you more than your parents who have devoted their lives to you? On the other hand, have you spent days and nights with the nightmare of losing your loved ones and thinking every day that today might be the last day of his life?
This is what we feel about our father every day and every moment and the question we ask ourselves every day: Will we see him again? Shall we hug once more?
We are a family that endures this suffering for the crime of loving freedom for Iran. Everything started from the day when we decided to give up our higher education in the field of physics and graphics at the university in Iran and joined Mojahedin in Ashraf city in Iraq to fight for freedom and justice in Iran.
In October of 2008, our father secretly came from Iran to Ashraf 1 in Iraq to visit us. Not even a month had passed since his return to Iran, on November 11 of the same year, he was arrested by the agents of the Ministry of Intelligence of the regime (MIOS). His main crime was the family visit in Ashraf. He was sentenced to three years in prison.
Maybe the meaning three 3 years imprisonment is not very clear. But 3 years of imprisonment in the prisons of the Mullahs criminal regime means all kinds of mental and physical tortures and conditions in which the minimum human rights of a person, especially a political prisoner, are not recognized. Until 2011, our father was under torture and inhumane pressure just because of his family relationship with daughters. He suffered from all kinds of diseases, acute kidney disease, cancer, intestinal obstruction, severe atherosclerosis of the neck and varicose veins. During this time, they pressured him many times to come to Ashraf and forcefully return us to Iran, but he refused to act as a mercenary of the mullahs. After the end of our father’s sentence in 2011, only after three to four months, he was arrested again on June 11, 2011. In those circumstances, only a few days had passed since our father’s cancer surgery. He was in a very critical condition when he was arrested. And then, the henchmen did not allow any medical treatment for him and refused to give him his medicines. This was the beginning of a continuous conspiracy and mental torture. For four months, neither we nor any other member of our family heard anything about our father. Our elderly grandmother used to go all the way from her city to Tehran and inquired about our father from the prosecutor’s offices, prisons and the MOIS, but no one gave her an answer. Yes, the MEK family members are like a hostage in the hands of the vile regime of the Mullahs. Our father should have been released on June 7, 2015. But this did not happen and they kept him in prison for a long time by filing more cases against him. The last time our father was re-arrested, was last year while he had just returned from surgery, and after nearly 9 months of indecision, he was again sentenced to 6 years in prison. So far, he has been in prison for more than 15 years. The “Nejat Society” of MOIS wrote that if Ali Moezzi is executed, the MEK is to blame. This is the word of all the criminal dictators who blame the family and friends for killing their loved ones.
This is an example of the mullah regime’s behavior with a family that does not accept to be a mercenary of this regime. But it is also the story of countless MEK families who were hanged, or tortured just for the crime of meeting their children in Ashraf1, or not accepting the become a regime’s criminal agent like Ali Saremi, Jafar Kazemi, Mohammad Ali Haj Aghaei and Mohsen Dogmechi.
The real families of the MEK are tortured for the crime of family relationship with their loved ones in Ashraf, but the fraudulent regime in Iran, through its agents in Albania, under the name of “Nejat Society”, disseminate lies that the MEK prevents family visits and launches black propaganda against us in Ashraf 3 in Albania. Isn’t it a strange paradox? .
This farce puppetry of the MOIS in Albania is nothing but to inflict mental torture on us on the one hand and to incite the Albanian people against us on the other hand. It has been proven that these agents are affiliated with the Iranian criminal regime and are disrupting the security of the Albanian people and our community in Ashraf 3. Therefore, the best way is to expel them from Albania and support the movement of people who have sacrificed everything for the cause of freedom.
