(en) France, UCL - Anti-imperialism, January 8 in the street with the Kurdish left, truth and justice for Fidan, Sakîne and Leyla (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 9 Jan 2022 09:43:47 +0200

The Libertarian Communist Union calls for demonstrations on January 8 in Paris against the oppression of Kurdistan and for the truth about the triple assassination, in Paris, of activists Fidan (Rojbîn) Dogan, Sakîne Cansiz and Leyla Saylemez. ---- On Wednesday January 9, 2013, the Kurdish activists Sakîne Cansiz, Fidan Dogan (Rojbîn) and Leyla Saylemez were coldly executed by a bullet in the head, in the premises of the Kurdistan Information Center, located at 147 rue La Fayette, in Paris . ---- The investigation carried out in France revealed a number of clues showing that the alleged murderer, Ömer Güney, arrested a few days after the crime, had acted on behalf of the Turkish Secret Service (MIT), as confirmed by the indictment of the Prosecutor of the Republic in this affair: "numerous elements of the procedure allow to suspect the implication of the MIT in the instigation and the preparation of the assassinations."

However, the death of Ömer Güney , on December 17, 2016, one month before his trial which was to begin in Paris on January 23, 2017, deprives us of a public trial which would have made it possible to judge not only the executor, but also, and above all, the sponsor, the Turkish state!

Saturday January 8, 2022 in Paris

Gathering at 11 a.m. Gare du Nord, departure at 12 p.m. towards Place de la République

While the investigation had been completed in May 2015, and while we were aware of Güney's serious health problems, as soon as he was arrested, why was the trial set for such a distant date? By postponing the holding of this trial, France has missed a crucial opportunity to finally judge a political crime committed on its territory! Since the 1960s, no less than 43 political assassinations have been committed on French soil. They all went unpunished!

Despite the promises made by the Minister of the Interior at the time, Manuel Valls, in the aftermath of the assassinations, the French political authorities never sought to shed light on this triple assassination. Always anxious to preserve their relations with Turkey, they did not even bother to receive the families of the victims, nor the representatives of the Kurdish community.

And what about the refusal of the French government to lift the defense secret on information that could have allowed the progress of the judicial investigation? Deprived of this information, the judges in charge of the investigation finally closed the file without being able to go back to the sponsors who are however known.

Until when will France turn a blind eye to the drift of the Turkish regime which not only permanently violates the rules of the rule of law and those of local democracy, but which also intends to crack down on Europe? where he deploys his agents in charge of spying and eliminating his opponents?

The death of the alleged murderer does not dampen our determination to fight for truth and justice! The performer or one of the performers is dead, but the sponsors are still alive and free! The silence of the French authorities is deafening. We demand from them all the light on these assassinations and, finally, justice!
