The KSC issued a written statement to the public opinion, denouncing the international conspiracy against Ocalan, and called on the world to end the strict isolation, calling on the United Nations, Amnesty International, the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights to intervene quickly and force the Turkish state to release the leader.
The text of the statement read:
“As the 23rd anniversary of the international conspiracy against the international leader and the Kurdish people gets close, after he was expelled from Syria and arrested on February 15, 1999, when Turkish intelligence, supported by the Glaudio Organization, kidnapped the leader from the Kenyan capital Nairobi, and immediately transferred him to an unknown location in Turkey with the complicity of the Kenyan authorities and the Greek embassy in Nairobi, where he remained a guest for two weeks after a long chasing by the Turkish state and its allies. Since his departure from Syria in 1998 under the Turkish state’s threats and signing notorious Adana Agreement, which Recep Tayyip Erdogan has so far used as a pretext for his interventions in the northeast of Syria.
The plot against the leader was nothing but a link in a series of conspiracies against the peoples of the region in general and the Kurdish in particular, starting with the Sykes-Picot Agreement 1916 and other agreements. The kidnapping of the leader Ocalan was fundamentally contrary to international conventions and laws, especially the principles of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Covenant International Conference on Civil and Political Rights, because the leader Abdullah Ocalan represents the will of millions of Kurds and other components yearning for freedom, coexistence and peace.
We affirm our condemnation in the strongest terms, the international conspiracy and isolation on Ocalan, determined to continue our struggle enlightened by his thought and philosophy. We make clear that no freedom for the Kurdish people and all the peoples of the Middle East without his, and we call and demand all democratic forces and figures and all human rights institutions in the world. The world should work for his release because the global human conscience is no longer likely to continue this leader and human philosopher away from his people and issues of democracy. In this regard, we salute the resistance of all militants who follow the same model in their rejection of the isolation on Ocalan, which violates the simplest human rights charters and international covenants, and we call on peace-lovers worldwide to intensify their peaceful struggle to end the isolation on the philosopher of the democratic nation.
We, as the KSC, which is a product of Ocalan’s thought, know very well that the international conspiracy does not target the will and personality of the leader only, but rather targets the free peoples, especially the will of the free woman in the whole world. Rather, he gave the Syriac, Arab, and Armenian women and all women in the Middle East, by reading his arguments and following his ideas, and also gave women the will and power to obtain their stolen rights. We also appeal to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, Amnesty International, the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights to intervene forcing the Turkish state to release the leader Abdullah Ocalan.
