Al-Qamishli: Asayiş interrogates activists

KURDWATCH, June 6, 2013—On June 1, 2013, the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) Asayiş (security service) held and interrogated activists from the youth center Zelal and the women’s group Ronî in al‑Qamishli for several hours. The interrogation occurred after the activists had visited Arab refugees and distributed toys to their children. An employee of the Asayiş berated and insulted the young people calling them »filth« and accused them of being financed by the Syrian National Council in Istanbul. Moreover, she demanded that the center be officially registered with the Asayiş before any further activities are undertaken.
