Turkey, SMART

On Sunday, Turkish media outlets said that the Czech authorities detained the ex-leader of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), Saleh Muslim, without providing further details of the incident.

The Turkish official news agency, Anadolu, and Daily Sabah newspaper, said Muslim was detained by the Czech in Bragh this morning. No reasons were given for the detention, nor was there any mention of Turkey's involvment in the matter.

Muslim's detention follows 10 days after Turkey enlisted him on the “red-list”, a record which includes 135 names of “wanted terrorists”. The Turkish government allocates 4 million Turkish liras (over one million USD) for those who provide information that can help to arrest wanted terrorists on the red list.

In November 2016, Turkish authorities issued a detention note against Saleh Muslim (and 47 others) who are suspected to be involved in an assault that hit Ankara, and killed 30 people last February. Turkish authorities accused the (PYD) of planning the assault.

In September 2010, the Kurdish party (PYD) elected Saleh Muslim as a leader. Muslim remained in office until September 2017, after which the PYD elected Shahouz al-Hassan and Aisha Hasou as joint leaders.

The Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), which is the political wing of Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), dominates the Autonomous Administration in Northern and Northeastern Syria. Turkey considers the party as an extension of the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK), which is enlisted in the list of terrorist organizations.
