Leyla Guven denounces the silence of the opposition on the genocide of the Kurds

JAILED, former People’s Democratic Party (HDP) MP Leyla Guven praised Turkey’s second largest party for its continued silence on the genocide of the Kurdish people.

In a letter sent from prison today, she accused the Kemalist People’s Republican Party (CHP) of demanding justice only for its own party and said that by turning its back on the country’s large Kurdish minority it was complicit in government oppression.

If history one day calls for the [ruling Justice and Development Party] AKP to account for the suffering it inflicted on the Kurdish people, especially Roboski, it will ask which party was in the main opposition while all this was going on, she wrote.

The Kurdish politician has warned of the double standard after the Constitutional Court ruled last week that the rights of CHP lawmaker Ennis Berberoglu were violated when he was deprived of his parliamentary immunity for the second time last June. .

There are ongoing investigations into allegations that he violated national security after being accused of leaking information that the Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MIT) was shipping weapons to jihadists in Syria.

He was sentenced to 25 years in prison in 2017 but continued to serve as an MP until last summer, when his parliamentary status was revoked along with Ms Guvens.

He was released shortly after for health reasons and was reinstated as an MP last week after an Istanbul court ordered a new trial.

In contrast, Ms. Guven, who is also the co-chair of the Democratic Society Congress (DTK), a coalition of organizations campaigning for Kurdish autonomy, was jailed for 23 years and three months in December on trumped-up terrorism charges.

She said it was clear that the law did not apply in Turkey as well, with herself and others being punished not because we are guilty, but because we are Kurds.

But Ms. Guven, who remained in the country to face her persecutors, said that despite the oppression, we would rather stay in the prisons with our dignity and continue the fight against the fascist AKP government.

The HDP is under constant pressure from the Turkish state, with some 20,000 of its members detained since 2016, of which 10,000 have been imprisoned, as well as 200 elected officials and at least seven deputies.

New constitutional proposals are reportedly being prepared by AKP President Recep Tayyip Erdogans and his junior partners, the Neofascist Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), with the intention of shutting down the HDP.

Last month, the Morning Star NUJ Chapel awarded Ms. Guven honorary membership status and called on union branches and national, regional and local trades councils to do the same.

Messages can be sent to Ms. Guven in prison by [email protected] They will be translated and mailed to him.
