Rumaylan: Employees of state-run oil operations supposed to register with the Asayiş

KurdWatch, January 21, 2016—On January 2016, the state-owned »Syrian Petroleum Company« together with the People’s Defense Units (YPG) of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) sent around a joint circular letter to all departments of the company at the Rumaylan oil field two kilometers south of al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê). In the letter, it stated that all employees living on the factory site have to register with the Asayiş, the PYD’s security service. They have to present a copy of their ID document, a photo, as well as a letter for the employee from the responsible commune. Should employees not respond within three days, they will be threatened with the termination of their family’s food supply. No reason was given for the measure laid out in the circular letter.
