ʿAmudah: PYD releases activist

KURDWATCH, August 6, 2013—On July 30, 2013, the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), released ʿAbdurrahim Tikhubi, member of the Cooperation of the Youth of ʿAmudah. Tikhubi was kidnapped by the Asayiş on July 8, 2013 [further information on the case]. He told KurdWatch: »I was beaten lightly only on the first day. But they threatened me and tried to get me to tell them the location of other activists who had fled so they could arrest them. When they released me, they demanded that I no longer pursue bad activities. What they actually meant was that I stop all activities that are not in agreement with the politics of the PYD.«
