Kurdish guerrilla captured alive, tortured and executed by Turkish soldiers

Turkish soldiers murdered him because “he refused to play a role according to the scenario written by Turkish soldiers”.

A 33-second video obtained by ANF shows a Kurdish guerrilla captured alive by Turkish soldiers. The guerrilla on the video, Cuma Imen, was executed moments after.

Cuma Imen (nom de guerre: Kocer Devrim) was captured alive by Turkish soldiers on July 24, in Beytüşşebbap, a district of Şırnak province. It was reported that he was executed at that time.

Imen’s body was returned to his family days after he was killed.

A 33-second video obtained by ANF shows guerrilla Imen near two Turkish soldiers. A Turkish commander orders him to say that Turkish soldiers treated him well. Imen refuses to do so and says “They beat me whole day… they beat me…” After Imen insists that he was beaten, the Turkish commander gives the order to stop filming.

The Peoples’ Defence Forces (HPG) released a statement saying that he was captured alive then executed. HPG said, Turkish soldiers murdered him because “he refused to play a role according to the scenario written by Turkish soldiers”.

We call on humanright organisations to take immediate action and condemn Turkish war crimes.
