DTP Vice President Nurettin Demirtas arrested

This is an image19 December 2007 - Press Release: For immediate release

The DTP Vice President Nurettin Demirtas was arrested two days ago at the Ankara Airport when returning from Europe. Demirtas is accused of having forged documents in order to escape military service in Turkey. It is expected that Demirtas will be transferred to a military service base.

After having participated at the EUTCC conference, EU Turkey and the Kurds, in the European Parliament, Brussels, December 3-4 2007, Demirtas decided to stay in Europe for a few weeks. Before returning to Turkey Demirtas gave an interview to the news agency Firat at the Düsseldorf airport where he strongly condemned the recent air raids against PKK bases carried out by the Turkish air force in the Qandil Mountains of Kurdistan, Iraq. The attacks caused death and huge material losses to civilians in the region. Demirtas stated in the same interview that the Kurdish question can not be solved by military means; it has to be solved politically.

When receiving the news of the arrest of Mr. Demirtas the chair of the EUTCC Kariane Westrheim stated: “This is just another example of how Turkish authorities try to marginalise DTP representatives in Turkey. The ridiculous accusations against Mr. Demirtas can only be read as a pretext for silencing legally elected DTP politicians”.

EUTCC calls on the international community to strongly condemn the detention of the DTP Vice-president Nurettin Demirtas and urges for his immediate and unconditional release.
