Al-Darbasiyah: PYD threatens critic with death

KURDWATCH, January 25, 2012—Members of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), the Syrian branch of the PKK, have threatened to kill the activist Saʿdun Sino. During the Friday demonstration on January 20, 2012, Sino, who is among the most active dissidents in al-Darbasiyah and who played a leading role in organizing the demonstrations there, had openly condemned the killing of Ahmad ʿAbdullah Badro, Nidal ʿAbdullah Badro, and ʿAmar ʿAbdullah Badro by the PYD [further information on the case]. After leading figures from al-Darbsiyah advocated for Sino, and after he apologized to the PYD for his statements, PYD functionaries stated that they would not go ahead with the killing they had been ordered to carry out.
