Al-Malikiyah: The PYD's People's Protection Committee kidnaps Vice President of the Kurdish National Council

KURDWATCH, July 7, 2012—In the late night hours of June 24, 2012, a unit of the Democratic Union Party's (PYD) People's Protection Committees kidnapped Mustafa Juma, Vice President of the Kurdish National Council and Secretary of the Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî), as he was trying to leave Syria illegally for Iraqi-Kurdistan. Juma was brought with his eyes bound to a house in al‑Malikiyah that had been turned into a prison. After negotiations between members of the Kurdish National Council and the PYD-affiliated People's Council of West Kurdistan, Juma was handed over to the previous chairman of the Kurdish National Council, Ahmad Sulayman the following day. On June 27, Mustafa Juma was able to leave the country for Iraqi—Kurdistan.
