Jurists: System in Imrali is violation of all international, Turkish conventions

Jurists stressed that the system applied by the Turkish government in Imrali prison against the leader Ocalan is a violation of all international conventions and the Turkish constitution as well, and that observers on implementing these measures, whether international, regional or even local are still unable to implement and carry out their tasks and functions towards a person has been known by the world as well as his case and the reasons for his isolation from the rest of the prisoners.

The Kurdish leader Abdullah Ocalan was arrested on 15 February 1999 through an international conspiracy involving dozens of international and regional countries. The Turkish authorities have imposed an intensive isolation on the leader for more than three years, and Afrin jurists consider that a continuation of a series of conspiracies against the Kurdish people.

The member of the Justice Office Mohammed Saeed said, "If we follow up the historical events regarding the Kurdish Cause and its personalities and leaders since the days of Sheikh Saeed and the Judge Mohammed and Mustafa Mullah al-Barzani ending with the leader Ocalan, we see that the Kurdish Cause is in the permanent birth of national leaders and defenders despite the diversity of enemies and their methods. That resistance method adopted by the national resistant people, and only those who rose up the Kurdish Cause, defended it by talking about it, and put forward the methods of resistance, struggle, solutions and sound projects, and thus, the cause extended and the struggle continued and these leaders became symbols.

The conspiracy against the Kurdish people continues as long as the leader Ocalan is prisoned

Saeed pointed that the international society and international organizations are not serious in solving the Kurdish Cause. Considering Ocalan's issue, we note that obviously, where the international society and international organizations are still keeping silent who struggled for his people and their standing issue. He said, "The conspiracy against the Kurdish people continues as long as the leader Ocalan is prisoned."

The Jurist Abdullah Mustafa explained that the leader Ocalan was not tried fairly and legally in accordance with the international and the United Nations laws, alluding that the plot and isolation on Ocalan is considered a penetration of all international laws, where all the international laws assured the right of prisoners including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 which states "Article 3 provides for everyone the right to live freely and safely of person. Article 6 No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatments or punishment or to dignity. Article 9 No states that one shall not be arbitrarily detained or denied, and other provisions such as allowing every prisoner to meet his or her lawyers individually. 

Mustafa explained that the system applied by the Turkish government in Imrali prison against the leader of the Kurdish people Abdullah Ocalan is a violation of all international conventions and the Turkish constitution as well, and observers on implementing these measures, whether international or regional and even local are still unable to implement their tasks, but unfortunately, the silence remains the master of the situation, but the Kurdish people continue their march tirelessly to propagate the ideology and philosophy of the leader in front of a world that avoids the implementation of justice made by itself."
