Ocalan Re-Ignites Turkish Kurdish Revolt
Ocalan Re-Ignites Turkish Kurdish Revolt

From DEBKA-Net-Weekly No. 123

Resumes revolt from island-prison


Tuesday, September 1, Kurdish rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan, head of the Kurdish Workers Party PKK - announced his movement, meanwhile renamed itself KADEK, was reviving the Kurdish revolt. Ocalan has been held in total isolation on the Imrali island prison in the Sea of Marmara since 2002, when the death sentence passed against him after his capture in 1999 was commuted to life without parole. The island is guarded by Turkish warships and attack helicopters equipped with surveillance instruments. Only prison guards set foot on the island; no visitors allowed. Ocalans only contact with the outside world through heavily censored letters.

The Turks are gonna have to make some concessions to the Kurds if they are going to be part of the European Union!
