MESOP NEWS : THE STALINIST PKK/PYD REGIME OF ROJAVA (Syria) – PYD Releases Two Rival Politicians in Qamishlo

Basnews English – 25/06/2017 – 21:44 – ERBIL — Security forces affiliated with the ruling Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) have reportedly released two political opposition activists in Qamishlo.

Naif Abdullah and Sulayman Oso, respectively from Kurdistan Democratic Party of Syria (KDPS) and Kurdish Union Party of Syria, were taken under detention by the PYD forces allegedly for their political views only.

Oso told reporters after his release that they have gone through intense interrogation processes while behind the bars. He also called on human rights organisations to mount their pressure on the PYD, which is know as the Syrian offshoot for the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), to release the remaining political prisoners as they are kept in tough conditions. The Kurdish politician said the PKK should stop prisoning the opposition activists and instead invite them to bring brighter prospects for the people of Rojava (Syrian Kurdistan).
