March 28, 2011

DIYARBAKIR, The Kurdish region of Turkey, — According to Cihan Turkish news agency, "the court in Istanbul decided to release Jarquin and continue his trial out of the prison."

Hundreds of the missing people families demanded in Diyarbakir protests on Sunday to provide protection to Jarquin, considering that his confession holds importance for the detection of the unknown crimes that took place in Turkey, in the nineties of the last century.

Jarquin was a previous member in the Turkish police and he confessed of murdering a Kurdish businessmen according to official orders in the nineties of the last century.

"The prime minister of that era, Tansu Jiler said that it has a list of the names of businessmen who are helping terrorism".        

Kurdish businessmen such as Behçet Janturk, Soash Buldan,www.ekurd.netHaji Kara and Adnan Elderm bodies were found dead after being kidnapped by unknown militants in the nineties of the last century.

Jarquin stressed the need to trial him and the officials in that period and apologize from the Kurdish people for the injustices he suffered in the past. "

Jarquin was the owner of 350 Merit Certificate for his participation in the operations mentioned in the program broadcasted by a Turkish station that had killed about a thousand people with the name of fighting terrorism."

Since 1984, the Kurdistan Workers' Party PKK has been fighting the Turkish state, which still denies the constitutional existence of Kurds, to establish a Kurdish state in the south east of the country.

But now its aim is the creation an autonomous region and more cultural rights for ethnic Kurds who constitute the greatest minority in Turkey, numbering more than 20 million.

A large Turkey's Kurdish community openly sympathise with the Kurdish PKK rebels.

PKK's demands included releasing PKK detainees, lifting the ban on education in Kurdish, paving the way for an autonomous democrat Kurdish system within Turkey, reducing pressure on the detained PKK president, stopping military action against the Kurdish party and recomposing the Turkish constitution.

PKK demanded to stop military and political operations and to release Kurdish politicians who are unjustly detained. The organization also requested to enable imprisoned PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan's active participation in the process.

Turkey refuses to recognize its Kurdish population as a distinct minority. It has allowed some cultural rights such as limited broadcasts in the Kurdish language and private Kurdish language courses with the prodding of the European Union, but Kurdish politicians say the measures fall short of their expectations.

The PKK is considered as 'terrorist' organization by Ankara, U.S., the PKK continues to be on the blacklist list in EU despite court ruling which overturned a decision to place the Kurdish rebel group PKK and its political wing on the European Union's terror list.
