Signature campaign against death penalty for Er and Dağ
Abdurrahman Er and Mazlum Dağ were sentenced to death in February 2020 are accused of the killing of the Turkish vice consul Osman Köse in the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan on 17 July 2019 in Hewler.
Abdurrahman Er and Mazlum Dağ were sentenced to death on 11 February 2020 by the Second Hall of the Erbil Criminal Court in the Autonomous Region of Iraqi Kurdistan - governed by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). The sentence was confirmed by the Court of Appeal on 22 September 2020.
The two Kurdish citizens, together with two other people, are accused of the killing of the Turkish vice consul Osman Köse in the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan on 17 July 2019 in Erbil.
A signature campaign has been launched in Berlin, Germany for the annulment of the death sentence for Er and Dağ.
The young activists describe death penalty as a crime against humanity and emphasise that this crime could be prevented through the support of various social circles in the signature campaign.
The activists from Berlin call in a video message for participation in the signature campaign against the execution of Mazlum Dağ and Abdurrahman Er. The campaign initiated by the NAV-Berlin association three weeks ago at Change.org is directed at the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) and other organizations. The text is written in several languages and reads: "I am against the death penalty of the regional government of Kurdistan for Mazlum Dağ and Abdurrahman Er. I support the petition against death."
