Amnesty International calls on Turkey for cooperation on Paris attack investigation
ISTANBULTurkish authorities should cooperate to uncover details in the investigation of the murder of three Kurdish women in Paris to bring the responsible party to justice, the director of Amnesty International's Europe and Central Asia Program, John Dalhuisen said in a statement.
Amnesty International issued a written statement today on its website highlighting the killing of three Kurdish women in Paris.
“There must be justice for these apparently political killings – no stone must be left unturned in the investigation by the French authorities,” said Dalhuisen.
Dalhuisen emphasized the ongoing negotiations process' importance between the Turkish government and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), underlying that both sides should ensure the continuation of this process.
The statement cited the fact that 40,000 people have died in the conflict between the Turkish army and PKK militants since 1984, while adding the PKK is regarded by Turkey, the United States and the European Union as a terrorist organization.
