ʿAfrin: Asayiş extort prisoner

KURDWATCH, December 23, 2013—On September 21, 2013, employees of the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), arrested Muhiyuddin Shaikh Khidr (b. in Jindiras) in Qarmatlaq (ten kilometers west of ʿAfrin). Khidr was accused of »cooperating with the enemy«. An activist told KurdWatch: »Muhiyuddin is not an activist. He was released a day later after he paid ten thousand Syrian Lira. The arrest was not political. The Asayiş only wanted to extort money.«
