There has been no news for 44 days from Süleyman Ahmet, the Arabic service editor of Rojnews, who was detained by KDP forces at the Pêşxabûr (Sêmalka) Border Gate while returning to the Federated Kurdistan Region from Northern and Eastern Syria, where he went to visit his family, on October 25.
In the statement made by Duhok Public Order, affiliated with KDP, 6 days after his detention, allegations were made that Ahmet had nothing to do with journalism.
IT WAS LEARNED THAT AHMET WAS IN THE HANDS OF PARASTIN
Neriman Ahmet, one of Süleyman Ahmet's lawyers, said that the Duhok Public Order prevented them from meeting with their client on the grounds that the investigation was continuing, and that they learned that the file was under the control of KDP's intelligence agency, Parastin.
