Al‑Qamishli: Former PKK militant must continue to await a verdict

February 13, 2010 – On February 9, 2010, the single military judge in al‑Qamishli postponed the decision in the case of Mihemed Selahedîn el‑Moso (b. 1985) until April 12, 2010. For unknown reasons, el‑Moso had not been brought to the hearing from al‑Qamishli prison, causing the postponement.
In 2002, former PKK militant el‑Moso left the PKK after a two year membership and returned to Syria from Iraq. He promised several families there that for a suitable fee he would bring their sons and daughters back to Syria from the Kandil Mountains (Kurdistan Iraq), the location of the PKK military bases. It later emerged that he had deceived the families. Consequently, members of the State Security in al‑Hasakah arrested him on August 23, 2009. Due to his earlier membership in the PKK, el‑Moso was charged with membership of an illegal party pursuant to Articles 307 and 308 of the Criminal Code. [Further information on the case]
