European Parliament to address issue of seized HDP-run cities

At the request of political groups in the European Parliament, an emergency session was held at the General Assembly on the seizure of the HDP-run municipalities.

Amed, Mardin and Van metropolitan municipalities were seized by order of the Ministry of Interior on August 19 and the democratically and freely elected HDP mayors were dismissed and replaced with trustees. 

The seizure of the HDP-run municipalities will be discussed in the European Parliament.

According to information received, the decision of the meeting was made with the support of four political groups.

During the debate, which will take place on Thursday morning in Strasbourg, political groups will express their views.
