Al-Hasakah: Unknown people kidnap Kurdish National Council member

KURDWATCH, August 2, 2015—On July 26, 2015 armed people kidnapped Kurdish National Council member Mahmud ʿUje (b. 1955, married, seven children) from his workplace at a broker’s office in al‑Hasakah. A niece was an eyewitness to the kidnapping. His nephew Walat ʿUje told KurdWatch: »They were employees of the Asayiş. My uncle refused to go with them, so they threatened him with their weapons and took him with them«. The Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), informed the family that it knew nothing about the whereabouts of Mahmud ʿUje.
