ʿAmudah: Rezan Bahri Shaykhmus detained by PYD

KURDWATCH, August 9, 2012—On August 6, 2012, armed supporters of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) detained Rezan Bahri Shaykhmus (Chairman of the Office of General Communication for the Kurdish Future Movement in Syria) and two companions for about an hour near ʿAmudah. Shaykhmus, who had been visiting friends in Jirnik, was stopped at a PYD checkpoint and asked to open his trunk. Despite his refusal, he was initially allowed to pass, only to be detained at a checkpoint in ʿAmudah and brought to a PYD building. Shaykhmus told KurdWatch that the »action« served »to humiliate us«.
