A Republican People's Party (CHP) deputy who was kidnapped by the militant Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) on Sunday will be freed after “questioning,” according to a statement released by the Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK).
The KCK, an umbrella organization that includes the PKK, announced late on Tuesday afternoon that it was preparing to release CHP deputy Hüseyin Aygün “shortly,” through the Fırat News agency.
The statement posted on Fırat News' website said Aygün had been “detained” by KCK forces for questioning regarding “complaints” that he was adhering to state policies targeting Kurds and the ethnic Zazas in Tunceli. It added that he was going to be released after the completion of “interrogation procedures.”
Aygün was abducted by a group of PKK gunmen late on Sunday in the eastern province of Tunceli.
