ʿAmudah: Prime Minister dismisses five teachers from service

KURDWATCH, November 18, 2013—On October 27, 2013, a decision by the Syrian prime minister to dismiss five teachers in ʿAmudah from public service came to light. The teachers in question are Khidr ʿIsa, Ahmad ʿAlo, Yunis Asʿad, Walid al‑Husaini, and Anas Mijwal. The reasons behind the decision are not known. Although ʿAmudah has been controlled by the Democratic Union Party (PYD) since December 2012, the Syrian government, which continues to pay the salaries of civil servants, can still make such far-reaching personnel decisions. Khidr ʿIsa, member of the Kurdish Union Party in Syria (Yekîtî), told KurdWatch: »Members of the school board in ʿAmudah informed us verbally that they were no longer allowed to pay us salaries. We did not receive a copy of the decision. We don’t even know the official reason for our dismissal.«
