Al-Qamishli: Activist released after being tortured

KURDWATCH, November 23, 2011—On November 16, 2011, Milad Hadi Muhammad was released from the custody by the Military Intelligence Service in al-Qamishli. The day after his arrest, Muhammad’s eyes were bound and his hands were tied behind his back — he was subsequently beaten in the face with the butt of a rifle, among other things. The following day he was stripped naked and doused with cold water. During the interrogation, Muhammad was asked for the names of leading Kurdish activists, as well as their membership in Kurdish political parties. He spent his entire time in custody – a total of 4 days – in solitary confinement. No charges were raised. [Further information on the case]
