He added “The leader of the Kurdish people, Abdullah Ocelan, has fought for the freedom of his people and is not military until the Turkish state has imprisoned him for this period Ocelan has been fighting four walls for 19 years.
Naimo pointed out that isolation is contrary to international laws, and continued “even as it contrary to the laws of the Turkish state itself, and this isolation is contrary to all ethical and humanitarian criteria and all international covenants and conventions.”
Naimo said “While we express our condemnation of these practices, we hold the Turkish authorities fully responsible for the safety of the leader, and we call on all Human Rights and civil institutions to put pressure on AKP to release him,”.
He concluded “Sooner or later, our democratic struggle will be crowned with victory, Erdogan’s authority will be defeated and we will free our Commander Ocelan.”
