Al-Qamishli: College Dean critical of PYD kidnapped

KURDWATCH, April 25, 2015—On April 15, 2015, Farid Saʿdun, dean of the College of Humanities at Euphrates University in al‑Hasakah, was kidnapped by unknown persons in al‑Qamishli and turned over to the Syrian regime’s security forces. An eyewitness reported that the kidnappers spoke Kurdish. Saʿdun was released a day later. According to information obtained by KurdWatch, however, the stipulation was made that he must again report to the Syrian regime’s security forces in al‑Hasakah. A nephew of the kidnap victim told KurdWatch: »In an interview Rudaw‑TV about a week ago, my uncle reported on the situation in the province [al‑Hasakah] and on emigration due to the PYD. That’s probably why he was kidnapped.«
