Damascus: Barzanî Kerro accused of separatism

February 15, 2010 – On February 14, 2010, the military tribunal in Damascus postponed the case of Barzanî Kerro until February 17, 2010. Deported from Cyprus in June 2009, Kerro was asked in a closed hearing about the charges raised against him pursuant to Article 267 of the Criminal Code. He denied all charges. His attorney’s defense is scheduled for the next day of trial. KurdWatch has information that Kerro was tortured while in pre-trial custody. The soles of his feet were beaten (the so-called Falaqa method, bastinado), leaving them numb for a week. Barzanî Kerro is remanded in custody. [Further information on the case]
