Al‑Qahtaniyah: State Security Service refuses to issue identity documents to Kurds living abroad and their relatives—the first names are available

KURDWATCH, May 27, 2010 – At the beginning of May, the State Security Service forwarded lists with the names of people living abroad to the civil register offices in al‑Hasakah province with the stipulation that the people listed could only be issued identification papers and other documents with the prior approval of the State Security Service. The same applies to family members who request papers on which the name of the listed person appears—for example extracts from the family register. Those affected are predominantly Kurds; only a few Arabs and Christians are named.
KurdWatch has successfully obtained 30 of the 37 names that were forwarded to the register office in al‑Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî). The people listed here were originally registered in al‑Qahtaniyah. Some of them are politically active; others have thus far hardly shown themselves to be part of the opposition. KurdWatch is currently researching further background information and lists of names from other civil register offices will soon be published on KurdWatch.
