The globalist world order has begun a new assault on the People’s Mujaheddin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the primary resistance movement against the Mullahs in Iran. On Tuesday, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama order his Interior Minister to send more than 1,000 militarized Albanian police officers to attack the organization’s Ashraf 3 base near Durrës. Meanwhile, French authorities banned an upcoming MEK rally in Paris scheduled for July 1.
The Organization issued a press release about the assault:
“At the behest of the religious fascism ruling Iran, this morning around 1,000 Albanian policemen attacked Ashraf in a criminal and suppressive onslaught. They broke many doors, closets, and equipment and attacked the residents with tear gas and pepper spray. Many computers were broken or taken away.
As a result of this criminal attack, a member of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK), Mr. Ali Mostashari, was killed and more than 100 people were injured due to police firing pepper spray. Many of them are in critical condition and some were transferred to Mother Teresa Hospital in Tirana.
The actions of the Albanian police are reminiscent of the criminal attacks by Nouri al-Maliki forces on Camp Ashraf in Iraq between 2009 and 2015.
The Iranian Resistance demands that the U.S. Government and the United Nations, which have repeatedly guaranteed the safety and well-being of the residents of Ashraf, to condemn this criminal and barbaric behavior and provide the necessary guarantees to prevent these types of outlaw behavior that flagrantly violate many international treaties, including of the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the European Convention on Human Rights. The European Union, for whose membership Albania has applied, must condemn this barbaric attack and hold the Albanian Government accountable for this behavior.
Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)”
The French Government of Emmanuel Macron joined in the assault, canceling a previously scheduled rally in Paris organized by the National Council of Resistance of Iran. French authorities banned the event saying that it presented the risk of attack and that it could “generate disturbances to the public order due to the geopolitical context.
NCRI condemned the decision of the Macron government, promising that it “will employ all legal and political avenues to challenge and file a complaint against this unlawful and unwarranted ban,” calling it “a disgraceful act against democracy, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and succumbing to extortion and hostage-taking by the religious dictatorship ruling Iran.”
The statement went on to say that the Macron government’s use of the phrase “geopolitical context” reveals its policy of appeasement toward the Iranian regime. “The clerical regime’s pressures on France to impose this ban reveals the mullahs’ paranoia over the popular sentiment towards the People’s Mujaheddin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and the organization’s pivotal role in the nationwide uprising,” adding that “It also reflects the mullahs’ utter fear over the rally organized thousands of kilometers from Iran by the NCRI, which represents the democratic alternative to the ruling theocracy.”
The Albanian Government accused MEK members of violating their original agreement with the government and denied that anyone was killed or injured in the “police action.” Instead, the Interior Ministry claims that MEK assaulted Albanian police and claims that 15 were injured but acknowledges that all are in good condition and out of the hospital.
Albanian Interior Minister Bledar Çuçi contradicted himself, claiming in a statement that “Not even one person was touched by the police. We will wait for the medical-legal expertise to come to conclusions, but I am convinced that we have taken due care, so as not to create incidents inside the camp.”
Later, the General Director of State Police, Muhamet Rrumbullaku, admitted that Albanian police did employ tear gas to force their way into the compound. The Albanian government, however, has thus far refused to acknowledge that its forces killed one MEK member.
