Former MEK members petition the UNHCR in Albania (aka Mojahedin Khalq, Rajavi cult, NCRI …)

Tirana, Albania, September 12 2017

Some nearly 70 former members of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization yesterday approached the UNHCR in Albania (RAMSA) with a petition signed by all of them demanding their rights

RAMSA officials who met with these individuals – who are protesting against their refugee allowances being cut by the MEK – said they are following up the issue with Geneva and there will be an urgent meeting about the case

MKO

The individuals told the officials that over the coming days they would, of course with more people, continue coming to their offices until their rights are restored and that they will not give in

The RAMSA officials accepted the fact that the MEK has acted against the commitments made in an agreement in Geneva. Presumably the organization did not expect so many defectors. In addition, there are many more inside the group who wish to leave

RAMSA

The text of the petition handed over to RAMSA is as follows

Petition to the UNHCR and the Albanian ministry of interior affairs

In the name of Human Rights and in the name of Asylum seeking

We, a number of Iranian refugees in Albania and former members of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO …), would like to address all related organs and draw their attentions to our cause

We accepted the humanitarian invitation by the time Albanian government in cooperation with the USA and the UNHCR in Albania (RAMSA) and moved to this country after being expelled from Iraq

We decided willingly to dispatch from the MEK and we wish to live freely on our own outside the organization

Rajavi cult

We learned that apparently according to some possible agreements between the UNHCR and the MEK, the refugee allowances of the former members should be paid by the MEK directly

The Organization started paying us 45000 Leks (Albanian currency) and this was made up to September 2017

But surprisingly the Organization informed us recently that from the coming month no allowances will be paid to us and we can complain to the RAMSA if we wish

It is worth mentioning that not being able to receive the money means a grave economical difficulty, and consequently psychological pressure, to the refugees who have left the MEK and would make the life impossible for us, since we are not Albanian citizens but refugees who have no financial support what so ever

Therefore we urge the related organs including the RAMSA and the interior ministry to meet the below demands

  1. Our refugee allowances be paid by RAMSA and we be supported by the United Nations in Albania
  2. Work permits and jobs are granted to us in order that we are able to support ourselves
  3. Our Refugee Status is officially issued in order that we can receive our righteous benefits

Many Thanks and regards
