ʿAmudah: Activist kidnapped and tortured

KURDWATCH, March 26, 2014—On March 19, 2014, several masked persons kidnapped Rahman ʿAbdussalam Haso (b. 1993 in ʿAmudah), employee of the Iraqi-Kurdish television station Zagros and member of the Cooperation of the Youth of ʿAmudah. Haso’s eyes were bound and he was tortured. Nine hours later he was released. Haso told KurdWatch: »The kidnappers spoke Kurdish. They interrogated me because of my activities with the Cooperation of the Youth. I’m not exactly sure who they were.« The kidnapping is consistent with the manner in which the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its security service, Asayiş, treat activists in order to intimidate them.
