PYD members detained in South Kurdistan released after 50 days
PYD members Mistefa Osman Xelil and Mistefa Eziz Mistê, who were detained by the KDP, were released. The fate of the Autonomous Administration Hewler Representative Cihad Hesen remains unknown.
Democratic Union Party (PYD) members Mistefa Osman Xelil and Mistefa Eziz Mistê, who were detained by the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) on June 10, were released.
There is still no news, however, about Cihad Hesen, the Autonomous Administration Hewler Representative, who was arrested together with Xelil and Mistê.
While KDP officials have not made any statement about why the diplomats were detained, all attempts by the Autonomous Administration to learn what happened and where the politicians were kept had resulted to nothing for the past 50 days. Eventually today PYD members Mistefa Osman Xelîl and Mistefa Eziz Mistê were released.
According to the information received, the two politicians were released without being brought to court, as the accusations against PYD members could not be proven.
Autonomous Administration representatives in South Kurdistan made attempts to find out why Cihad Hesen was not released, but could not obtain any information.
