Assassination of the Kurdish national council’s general secretariat member. – Democratic union party condemns the assassination

The democratic union party has issued a statement addressing the public opinion condemning the assassination of the general secretariat member of the Kurdish national council Mahmud Wali, Abu Jandi; as well offering his family and relatives condolences.

The statement included ‘we received with deep sadness and sorrow the news of the assassination of the general secretariat of the Kurdish national council wishing the bereaved forgiveness and mercy and wishing his family courage and patience to bear the loss; as we also condemn all kinds of killings whatever the reasons are. We have no doubt that those brute hands which assassinated Mr. Abo Jandy are not welling the Kurdish people any good and try to create an atmosphere of skepticism and confusion within the Kurdish society and the Kurdish rank  especially in this sensitive stage, where all Kurdish parties and forces are unified under the umbrella of the supreme Kurdish committee’

We are all hope that the Kurdish people would abide by the necessary awareness and cautious in such a sensitive stage where a bunch of persons started to cast accusations in all directions of which our party.

We believe that the Kurdish supreme committee’s investigation would be able to uncover the truth.

Al-Arabiya channel is second copy of the Syrian channel Al-Duniah

The democratic union party’s statement reveals how the crime was conducted.

Some arab channels supported by the golf countries which are hostile to the Kurdish people in general and the democratic union party in particular has launched a campaign aiming at defaming the Kurdish people and to create discord and unrest in the Kurdish areas as the Saudi Arabian channel al-Arabiya published an article on its website accusing the democratic union party standing behind the assassination of the political activist Mahmud Wali.

In response to such allegation the democratic union party issued a statement revealing circumstances of the incident and the party’s position.

The statement states ‘the political activist Mahmud Wali was assassinated yesterday in front of the local council’s office of the Kurdish national council in Sarre Kaniye (Raas Alaain) the people of the city , civil security units and security forces (Assaish), which is formed by the supreme Kurdish committee, started  to put roadblocks on the roads and launched a search operation to catch the perpetrator’

‘He was assassinated in front of the Kurdish national council’s local council office I a crowded and lively street by a bare-faced unknown person as he fired some bullets killing Mahmud Wali then he walked away; one of the bereaved relatives fire some shots on the air using the bereaved gun allowing the perpetrator fleeing the crime scene, while some other guys tried to aim at him but were hindered by some relatives of the bereaved saying that they want catch him alive and not dead’

The people who were there while took place know how it happened in details.’

On our part as a party, we spared no effort and tried hard by all available means and by mobilizing our committees and organizations in an attempt to capture the perpetrator; while we were surprised by AL-Al-Arabiya, which is supposed to be neutral news channel broadcasting a report saying that they have known form sources that the Kurdistan Workers Party has killed Mahmud Wali. Such a hostile policy from those channels side indicates that there is no difference between the two Syrian news channels Al-Akhbariya and AL-Duniah and Al-Arabiya’s mentality; as if they were twins. We know that there is not neutral media but they are supposed to be objective in dealing with news and their broadcast.

Ardogan has said it clearly that the formation of the Kurdish supreme committee is not proper and apposite and must not continue to exist!!?

As the Kurdish area has become an example to be followed; as it proved to be a successful and appropriate project  which has become the target for all authoritarian regimes such as Al-Baath and the Turkish ones.’

We do not rule out that they try by all means to strike a blow against the self-administration project after people started to express their support and admiration for the project.

Again we do condemn what has been broadcasted by Al-Arabiya and we refute it fully and we regarded as a part of bigger scheme targeting the Kurdish unity’
