Raʾs al-ʿAyn: PYD’s Asayiş kidnap student

KURDWATCH, May 22, 2013—On May 18, 2013, members of the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), kidnapped the law student Sherko ʿAbdurrazzaq Khalil (b. 1992 in Raʾs al‑ʿAyn). The reasons behind the kidnapping remain unclear. An activist told KurdWatch: »Sherko’s family is accused of having debts of around ninety thousand Syrian liras. Due to this, charges have been filed. I don’t believe, however, that the PYD is interested in detaining someone for such a sum. I think the reason for the detention is because one of Sherko’s close relatives was active for the Free Syrian Army.«
