In a letter on January 7, 1986, to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Soviet Union, Farhad Olfat, the experienced high-ranking member of the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization made an unprecedented demand. He asked for a loan of $300 million to provide the necessary means for bringing Rajavi to power!
What follows is the text of Farhad Olfat’s letter:
Asking a loan from the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Soviet Union
Respectfully, the People’s Mujahedin of Iran who leads a national revolutionary struggle for the overthrowing of Khomeini regime, and according to the attached documents, is engaged in an all-out military, political, social, and propaganda struggle against the regime, needs a total sum of $300 million to achieve its revolutionary and anti-imperialist purposes.
Obviously, most of our financial requirements are met through the donations of people in Iran as well as the confiscation of properties belonging to the Khomeini regime.
However due to a shortage of funds, we ask our comrades at the Central Committee of the Soviet Union’s Communist Party to loan the People’s Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization any possible amount of money of the above-mentioned expenses, which will definitely have a huge and unforgettable effect on the advancing of the revolutionary struggle in Iran.
It is important to mention that as we are in serious need of this loan, which plays a decisive role in our organization’s strategic and tactical planning in 1986, we are asking for its immediate approval.
People’s Mujahedin of Iran hereby pledges to repay the loan in installment from 1988 onwards.
Member of the Political Office and representative of Mujahedin-e Khalq Iran
