Leaders of the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) have ordered members of the group settled temporarily in Camp Liberty and waiting to be interviewed by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to make untrue statements in their interviews in a bid to receive asylum, a defected member disclosed on Sunday.
"The MKO officials in Camp Liberty always talked to those who were waiting for interviews to get out of the Camp and told them about the organization's red lines and ordering them how they should behave in front of the UNHCR reporters," Majid Mohammadi said, quoted by the Persian-language Neday-e Haqiqat (the Voice of Truth) website.
"The MKO officials at Camp Liberty always stressed in their remarks to those people who were due to be interviewed for leaving the country that they were not required to restate the reality about their membership in the MKO in the UNHCR interview papers," Mohammadi said.
Mohammadi reiterated that the MKO ringleaders told the members that if they wanted to win a UN asylum, they must have said that they have had problems with the Islamic Republic since the first day and therefore their family members and parents have been jailed by the government of Iran.
"This is the way you can win a political asylum, they told us", Mohammadi added.
A growing number of Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) members are leaving the terrorist group as MKO ringleaders are busy with a compulsory relocation from the Northern Diyala province to a Baghdad camp where they are sheltered transiently before being expelled from Iraq, recent reports said.
Some defected members of the group had earlier unveiled that MKO ringleaders are using every means within their reach, including execution, to prevent the members' defection from the group.
The defected members revealed that the main ringleader of the group, Maryam Rajavi, issues the execution orders personally and condemns to death all the dissidents who refrain from obeying her orders and all those who plan to defect from the MKO.
According to the report, before the MKO members were sent to Camp Liberty, the ringleaders prevented the members of the group from meeting their relatives for three years in a bid to prevent their defection and escape from Camp Ashraf.
Also in March 2011, another defected member of the MKO revealed that the female members of the group have been living under captivity for more than 25 years and are not even allowed to appear in public places alone.
"It can be firmly said that 95% of the women in Ashraf Camp (the terrorist group's resort in Iraq) have not even been allowed to step in Iraq's public and recreational places alone all throughout the last 25 years," the defected member said.
The former member of the MKO also revealed that nearly 70% of the female members of the terrorist group are single and have not been allowed to marry anyone in or outside the group.
And only a total 10% of the married members have been allowed to have children, he added.
Many of the MKO members have abandoned the terrorist organization while most of those still remaining in Camp Ashraf or Camp Liberty are said to be willing to quit but are under pressure and torture not to do so.
