Turkish government behind operations against our party: Kurdish politician


Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) Leader Selahattin Demirtaş said yesterday they knew there had been secret meetings prior to the actualization of Kurdistan Communities Union’s (KCK) operations and that they had received minutes from these meetings.

Demirtaş spoke to members of the press before the Central Enforcement Committee meeting that took place in the Kayapınar BDP district headquarters in the southeastern province of Diyarbakır yesterday.

He said that some 80 BDP members were detained in the eastern province of Batman and the southeastern provinces of Siirt and Mardin in the last two days.

“They should have no doubt that one day the [ruling party] will give account for its direct interference with legislation and the constitutional crimes they are committing.”

“We know it very well where the so-called KCK operations are being carried out and where the decisions for these operations are being made. Those who are preparing and staging the KCK operations will face charges one day just like those who attempted the Ergenekon coup were disclosed with their meeting and preparation minutes.”

‘PM intimidated by hope for solution’
Demirtaş said the hope for solution that emerged after the end of the hunger strikes intimidated Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

The BDP leader also said they submitted a constitutional change petition to the parliament for annulment of all political immunities apart from the parliamentary chair immunity and they had no choice outside talk, dialog and negotiation for the establishment of peace.
