Al-Qamishli: Salih Gado resigns from the Kurdish Patriotic Conference’s Executive Committee

KURDWATCH, December 24, 2011—Salih Gado, member of the politburo of the Kurdish Left Party in Syria, resigned from the Executive Committee of the Kurdish Patriotic Conference in Syria on December 18, 2011. He justified this step to KURDWATCH by explaining that the members of a delegation from the Kurdish Patriotic Conference who had been invited to Iraqi-Kurdistan by President Masʿud Barzani at the end of November had taken money from the KDP Iraq and initially concealed this. He was critical of the fact that the members of the Conference could not agree on common demands, but could agree to keep for themselves money that rightly belonged to the Kurdish Patriotic Conference. Of a total of 21 delegation members, only ʿAbdulhamid Hajji Darwish, leader of the PUK-friendly Kurdish Democratic Progressive Party in Syria, allegedly refused to take the money. While money indisputably changed hands, the amount of the payments is unclear.
