Former Members Prosecute Rajavi
Former members of Mojahedin-e Khalq organization take action against the
leaders of this organization in France.
According to Le Parisien, Massoud Khodabandeh, Karim
Haqqi Moni, Massoud Tayebi and Jamshid Tahmasebi-four former members of
MKO-have accused MKO leaders of violating human rights and freedoms as well
as torturing and endangering the lives of other people.
About their complaint in French Judiciary, Le Parisien wrote: “Maryam Rajavi
and her husband allow themselves to interfere in the private lives of the
members and break their marital relations.”
This paper notes that these four men were former members of MKO, adding:
“The leaders of this organization have issued execution order for Tayebi and
Haqqi to prevent them from leaving the organization but they have been able
to escape to Europe and get political asylum from Netherlands government.”
According to Le Parisien, Khodabandeh was Rajavi’s bodyguard. When he
decided to leave MKO, they injected narcotics into his body and Tahmasebi
was under heavy mental tortures.
Le Parisien quotes French security service: “this organization never allowed
its members to open an account. It has been listed as a terrorist
organization by the US and EU.”
