Hewlêr authorities deport Autonomous Administration Representative after 112 of detention
Autonomous Administration Hewlêr Representative Cihad Hesen, who was detained by KDP forces on 10 June, was eventually deported 112 days after his arrest.
Autonomous Administration Hewlêr Representative Cihad Hesen, who was detained by KDP forces on 10 June, was deported 112 days later and banned from entering Hewlêr.
The Northern and Eastern Syria Autonomous Administration Representative said that the KDP security forces deported Cihad Hesen to Rojava banning him from entering Hewlêr at around 5.30pm on Wednesday. It was learned that KDP Hewlêr Asayish did not return Hesen his identity card and belongings.
PYD members Mistefa Osman Xelîl and Mistefa Eziz Mistê, who had been detained with Hesen, were released after 50 days of detention, but Hesen remained in custody and no news were given by the authorities.
Making a statement regarding the deportation of Cihad Hesen, the Autonomous Administration Foreign Relations Department said: "Our comrade Cihad Hesen, who was released 112 days after he was abducted by KDP forces, was deported from Bashur Kurdistan on Wednesdat evening. Our representative Cihad Hesen was not allowed to meet his family, friends and his lawyers during his detention and was not charged with anything. Our representative, whose documents were unlawfully confiscated, was eventually expelled from Bashur Kurdistan, a delicate development in given the sensitive process that Northern and Eastern Syria is going through.
This has been a new unlawful event carried out by the Bashur Kurdistan government, which blocked the crossings at the Semalka Border Gate. We condemn these practices once again. We call on sensible circles in Bashur Kurdistan to raise their voices against this lawlessness. Such practices only serve the enemy.”
