TODAY’S MESOP COMMENTARY : HASAN JUDI – MURDERED JOURNALISTS IN KURDISTAN
“In the last 22 years, since the Kurdish uprising in Iraq took place in 1991, every now and then a journalist, an activist or a writer is murdered, that is why the public so distrustful of the Government,” said Hasan Judi, a prominent Kurdish writer.
He added: “murder of journalists and free-thinking members of society is the Act of cowards, that is the reason why such an act will never stop with the intellectual Kurdish youths fight with their words to expose crimes of Kurdish corrupt officials. It would certainly further encourage and yet their will for freedom and democracy, because they have understood that a price that is needed to pay for the democratic demands and they seem willing to pay that price to be just as Kawa was ready and paid that price with his beautiful soul. ” Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDeXYcqeWuE
