Al-Maʿbada: PYD detains activist at the border

KURDWATCH, November 9, 2014—On October 23, 2014, the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), kidnapped a leading member of the Kurdish Youth Movement. Mahmud Ramadan had attempted to cross the Syrian-Turkish border near al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê) illegally. He was released on October 24, 2014. The Asayiş justified his arrest on the grounds that he did not have an exit permit.
