Al-Maʿbada: Member of the Future Movement detained by the Asayiş

KurdWatch, July 22, 2016—On July 12, 2016, the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) detained Muhammad Fanush Darwish and interrogated him for several hours in al-Maʿbada (Girkê Legê). Darwish is a member of Siamand Hajo's Kurdish Furure Movement in Syria as well as a member of the local committee of the Kurdish National Council in al-Maʿbada. He told KurdWatch that his son supposedly worked for the Asayiş, but recently fled to Turkey. Members of the Asayiş demanded from him information about the smugglers who brought his son across the border. During the interrogation they insulted him and reproached him for his Facebook entries. Moreover, on that day he lost his job at the state‑owned Syrian Petroleum Company in Rumaylan. The company refused to count his vacation days to cover the time he was absent and asked that he give them a letter of confirmation from the Asayiş that he was detained. The Asayiş refused to issue him a letter.
