CAPE TOWN,— South Africa’s retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu has called on the Turkish government to release Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan, saying keeping him behind bars is of no benefit to anyone.

Nobel peace prize winner Desmond Tutu told ANF that Öcalan’s continued incarceration would not serve anyone, and that despite his being in solitary confinement for the last 15 years, peace was always possible. Tutu recalled that Öcalan had persuaded Kurdish freedom fighters to call a ceasefire and prepared a roadmap for peace.

Tutu called on Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to release Öcalan, saying with Öcalan attaining his freedom all peoples in Turkey would secure a better life, adding that with a resolution of the Kurdish question Turkey would achieve peace. Tutu stressed that a delay in Öcalan’s release would be a blow against peace and delay the introduction of freedom.

Desmond Tutu, one of the symbols of the struggle against the Apartheid regime in South Africa, has monitored the situation of Abdullah Öcalanwww.Ekurd.net for many years. He is also one of the signatories of the Freedom for Öcalan, Peace for Kurdistan International Initiative.

Desmond Tutu, who was a friend of the legendary leader Nelson Mandela, who died late last year, is well known for his work on human rights and freedom.
