„Gemeinschaftlich handeln“ – das ist das Schulmotto des Essener Helmholtz-Gymnasiums. Und wie kaum eine andere Schule setzt die Schulgemeinschaft das auch um – besonders seit Mittwoch vergangener Woche. Da nämlich hatte sich der 14-jährige Schüler Edgar einer Lehrerin und einigen Mitschülern anvertraut: Seine Abschiebung nach Armenien stehe unmittelbar bevor.

Seitdem versuchen Lehrer und Schüler gemeinsam zu verhindern, dass Edgar gehen muss. Sie haben über 800 Unterschriften gesammelt, mit Medien gesprochen und an Politiker und Behörden appelliert. Denn Edgars Fall ist ein Härtefall. Der 14-Jährige leidet an Morbus Hodgkin. An Lymphdrüsenkrebs.

Sein älterer Bruder war an derselben Krankheit in Armenien verstorben, weil sie dort nicht richtig behandelt werden konnte. Als auch Edgar die Krankheit diagnostiziert wurde, ließ seine Familie ihre Heimat deshalb hinter sich. Die Eltern wollten nicht noch ein weiteres Kind an den Krebs verlieren. Mit Visa gingen sie 2016 nach Deutschland. Dort machte Edgar eine Chemotherapie. Die Familie beantragte Asyl.

Seit eineinhalb Jahren geht Edgar nun ans Helmholtz-Gymnasium in Essen. Obwohl er regelmäßig ins Klinikum muss, um untersucht zu werden, ist er dort als fleißiger und sehr gut integrierter Schüler bekannt.

Seine Lehrerin Janina Herrmann unterrichtete ihn zunächst im Fach Deutsch in der Internationalen Vorbereitungsklasse: „Edgar hat so schnell Deutsch gelernt, dass wir Lehrer schon bald empfohlen haben, dass er in eine Regelklasse kommt“, sagt Herrmann zu jetzt. „Mittlerweile geht er in die neunte Klasse und ist sehr beliebt. Das sieht man auch daran, dass sich die Schüler über alle Klassenstufen hinweg für ihn einsetzen.“

Edgar fürchtet sich laut Herrmann natürlich vor dem Verlust seiner Freunde und der neuen Heimat. „Es ist primär aber der gesundheitliche Faktor, der ihm Angst macht“, sagt die Lehrerin. „Er hat schließlich auch das Schicksal seines Bruders mitbekommen.“

Während des Telefonats mit Herrmann hört man an der Stimme der jungen Lehrerin, wie sehr sie Edgars Geschichte bewegt. Sie steht im engen Kontakt mit Edgars Eltern, die sich große Sorgen um die Zukunft ihrer Söhne machen. Edgar hat nämlich noch einen jüngeren Bruder, der auf das gleiche Gymnasium geht – und dann schließlich ebenfalls sein gewohntes Leben aufgeben müsste.

Am Montag wird sich Herrmann zusammen mit Edgars Familie und einigen anderen Lehrern dem Petitionsausschuss des Düsseldorfer Landtags stellen. Dort sind sie zur Anhörung eingeladen. Das wird die letzte Gelegenheit sein, die Ausländerbehörde bis zum 15. März – dann wird die Festsetzung des Abschiebedatums erwartet – umzustimmen.

„Ich kann unsere Chancen auf Erfolg leider überhaupt nicht einschätzen. Wir waren an unserer Schule noch nie mit einem solchen Fall konfrontiert und hoffen einfach das Beste“, sagt Herrmann. Edgar selbst sei aber optimistisch.

Wer etwas Positives an dieser Situation finden möchte, findet es innerhalb des Schulgebäudes: „Die Stimmung in der Schule ist zur Zeit sehr positiv und gemeinschaftlich. Man merkt richtig, wie die Schüler verstehen, was Zivilcourage bedeutet. Dass sie das Gefühl haben, gemeinsam etwas bewegen zu können.“

Wenn der Protest allerdings nichts bringen und die Ausländerbehörde am 15. März bei ihrem Beschluss bleiben sollte, werden nicht nur Edgar, seine Familie und die gesamte Schulgemeinschaft enttäuscht und entmutigt sein. Ihre Entscheidung könnte auch ein junges Leben kosten.

Ein kurzer Bericht vom Weltspiegel über die toten Zivilisten in Afrin

Türken töten keine Zivilisten, behauptet Präsident Erdogan. Gilt das auch das syrische Afrin ? Beobachter zählen dort inzwischen zahlreiche „zivile“ Tote und sprechen sogar von Kriegsverbrechen.

TEV-DEM foreign relations official and former PYD leader Saleh Moslem was detained in Prague, capital city of Czech Republic, at Turkey’s request Saturday night. In a statement on Sunday, Police of Czech Republic announced that he had been arrested in Prague at the request of the Turkish Interpol.

Moslem’s lawyer Tomas Pelikan stated that he had been detained in connection with a case Turkey opened against him in 2017.

Kurds and their allies held demonstrations around the world demanding the release of the Kurdish politician.

Several European politicians also condemned the arrest of Muslim and demanded his immediate release.

Turkish Army Hit Village in Syria’s Afrin With Suspected Gas: Kurdish YPG, Observatory

Syrian Kurdish forces and a monitoring group said the Turkish military carried out a suspected gas attack that wounded six people in Syria’s Afrin region on Friday.

There was no immediate comment from the Turkish military, which has previously denied accusations of hitting civilians in its Afrin operation.

Birusk Hasaka, a spokesman for the Kurdish YPG militia in Afrin, told Reuters that Turkish bombardment hit a village in the northwest of the region, near the Turkish border. He said it caused six people to suffer breathing problems and other symptoms indicative of a gas attack.

Turkey launched an air and ground offensive last month on the Afrin region, opening a new front in the multi-sided Syrian war to target Kurdish fighters in northern Syria.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told Reuters that Turkish forces and their Syrian insurgent allies hit the village on Friday with shells. The Britain-based war monitoring group said medical sources in Afrin reported that six people in the attack suffered breathing difficulties and dilated pupils, indicating a suspected gas attack.

Syrian state news agency SANA, citing a doctor in a Afrin hospital, said Turkish shelling of the village caused choking in six people.

On Feb. 6, the United Nations called for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Syria.

Since the onset of the conflict in 2011, the YPG and its allies have set up three autonomous cantons in the north, including Afrin. Their sphere of influence expanded as they seized territory from Islamic State with U.S. help, though Washington opposes their autonomy plans as does the Syrian government.

U.S. support for Kurdish-led forces in Syria has infuriated Ankara, which views them as a security threat along its frontier. Turkey sees the YPG as terrorists and an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) that has waged a three-decade insurgency on Turkish soil.

Syrian Kurds outraged over mutilation of female fighter

Turkish-backed rebels accused of filming mistreatment of Women’s Protection Units member

https://de.share-your-photo.com/img/ff8b2c70c5.jpg

Syrian Kurds have accused Turkish-backed rebels of mutilating then filming the body of one of their female fighters after a video emerged of her corpse.

Turkey and allied Syrian rebels have pressed an offensive since 20 January against the Kurdish enclave of Afrin in northern Syria, whose Kurdish fighters Ankara views as terrorists.

A Kurdish official identified the woman as Barin Kobani, who took part in a US-backed campaign to drive the Islamic State jihadist group from the northern town of Kobani.

The Kurds blamed the “terrorist allies of the enemy Turkish state” for mutilating the body of Kobani, who was a member of the all-female Kurdish Women’s Protection Units.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group based in Britain, said it received the video from a Syrian rebel fighting with Turkish forces in the Afrin offensive.

The rebel told the group the footage was filmed on Tuesday after rebels found the young woman’s corpse in the village of Qurna near the Turkish border in the north of the enclave. In the footage, a dozen men, some armed, gather around the badly mutilated body of a woman lying on the ground.

The Kurdish community reacted with outrage, and social media users shared a portrait of Kobani smiling next to another shot of her brutalised body.

“Barin did not surrender. She fought to the death,” said Amad Kandal, an official with the Women’s Protection Units, vowing to avenge her comrade’s brutal murder. “This kind of behaviour will only serve to reinforce our determination to resist until victory.”

Male and female YPG fighters have taken part in the battle by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to expel Isis from large parts of Syria.

An SDF spokesman, Mustefa Bali, said the video was reason to continue fighting back against Turkey and its allies. “Imagine the savagery of these invaders with the bodies of our daughters. How would they behave if they took control of our neighbourhoods?” he wrote on Facebook. “All this hatred and barbarity leaves us with a single option: to continue the resistance.”

An Afrin resident Hussein Cheikho, 65, said he was “deeply pained” when he saw pictures of Kobani’s mutilated body but said her death would not be in vain. “The death of a young man or a young woman will not weaken us. Out strength will be bolstered every day,” he said.

The Syrian National Council, the main opposition body in exile, condemned the “criminal acts” and called for “an immediate investigation to punish those responsible.

We Fought for Our Democracy. Now Turkey Wants to Destroy It / NUJIN DERIK

AFRIN, Syria — For more than a week, my home in northwestern Syria has been under a full-scale assault by the Turkish Army and thousands of Turkish-aligned Islamist jihadists.

Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has been threatening this invasion for a very long time. The Turkish Army has been targeting our villages with mortars and artillery for many months now.

I and my fellow members of the Kurdish Women’s and People’s Protection Units, often known as the Y.P.J. and Y.P.G., have fought hard for years to keep the Islamic State out of this autonomous region of Syria known as Rojava. We endured Turkey’s barrages and avoided returning fire, even after civilian casualties, so as not to provide a pretext for this invasion.

But Mr. Erdogan has nevertheless unleashed airstrikes, tanks and troops on this area that was once a relative island of peace in this war-torn country.

One would imagine the international community and especially the United States, which has been more than happy to partner with us in the fight against the Islamic State, would firmly oppose such an unprovoked attack executed in the name of racial hatred — Mr. Erdogan has stated his intention to commit ethnic cleansing of Afrin’s Kurdish population, or, as he says, to give the region to its “real owners” — but instead, it has been greeted largely with silence, and therefore tacitly condoned.

Does the Trump administration now care about nothing but its own immediate tactical interests? Wavering messages or calls for “caution” will not be enough. In addition to exerting real pressure on its Turkish ally, the United States should press for a no-flight zone over Afrin and the rest of Rojava. Leaders in Britain, France and elsewhere must also take a moral stand and demand a stop to this carnage.

The Turkish Army has been training the most extreme Islamist gangsters it could find as part of the so-called Free Syrian Army that is part of their assault, including members of the fascist Gray Wolf death squads and Qaeda affiliates, with high-tech weaponry purchased from the United States, Britain and Germany. They are being sent into our country backed by F-16 aircraft, German-made Leopard tanks and regular Turkish soldiers.

Yet Mr. Erdogan calls us terrorists, asserting that we and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party that he has warred with in Turkey are identical. The hypocrisy of this transparent justification for his invasion is astounding. Our forces have led the fight against the true terror represented by the Islamic State — even while Turkey provided it support and its oil was sold in Turkey.

Now Turkey is allying itself with jihadists and backing them with NATO weaponry to attack us. Is the world really willing to believe we are terrorists because we share the Kurdish freedom movement’s goals of democracy, environmental protection and women’s liberation?

We proudly admit we support these ideas, as do members of the Kurdish movement in Turkey and elsewhere. But our forces have been focused on the fight against the Islamic State, one in which we’d rather have had Turkey as an ally, not an enemy.

Do Western powers now believe that too strong a commitment to their own professed democratic ideals is terrorism? Mr. Erdogan, on the other hand, is an enemy of women, whom he has called “half persons,” and the views of his fundamentalist minions are even worse.

But just as female fighters were instrumental in the defense of Kobane and the liberation of Raqqa — where a major objective was the freeing of the Yazidi women the jihadists had taken there as slaves — so we will resist invaders here in Afrin.

There’s much worth fighting for. Until the Turkish invasion we had been able to maintain Afrin as a haven for anyone fleeing the terror of the civil war. We worked to develop our own democratic institutions.

Though poor and largely without outside aid, we have shared what we have with refugees, to the point where the region’s population ballooned in size.

In keeping with our philosophy of democratic confederalism, we established local councils so that all can participate in the decisions affecting their neighborhoods and communities. We hold independently monitored elections and ensure that women and all ethnic groups are strongly represented in governance. Our democratic system is increasingly the opposite of Turkey’s, where President Erdogan is crushing dissent and centralizing more power every day.

We have lost thousands of our brothers and sisters in the war against the Islamic State, and if this invasion continues, it will be only a matter of time before the jihadist remnants return to gain control of places we had liberated.

And Turkey’s forces themselves, allied as they are with extremist groups, pose a serious threat to our Assyrian and Armenian Christian and Yazidi communities. Turkey’s planes are killing children and civilians and destroying our villages. Those who had taken refuge here are fleeing and have no haven left.

We are asking the Western powers to act on their principles. Why are you not condemning a flagrant and unprovoked assault on the very men and women who stood shoulder to shoulder with you against the darkness of the Islamic State? Now a different evil, that of Mr. Erdogan’s increasingly undemocratic Turkey, aims to destroy our fledgling democracy. And this time, it’s claiming to act in your name.

Inside Afrin, the true victims of Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria are revealed – refugees, babies, women and children

Exclusive: In part three of his Inside Syria series, and the first Western media report from Afrin since the start of the Turkish offensive, Robert Fisk shows just how ‘surgical’ is the attack on ‘terrorists’ in Operation Olive Branch

https://de.share-your-photo.com/img/1e048cfab7.jpg
Mohamed Hussein, a 58-year-old Kurdish farmer, lies in the Afrin hospital, wounded in the head and eye after his home was bombed by a Turkish aircraft on the second night of the attack Yara Ismail

When Taha Mustafa al-Khatr, his wife Amina, his two daughters Zakia and Safa and son Sulieman went to bed in the tiny village of Maabatli, they placed their shoes outside the door. Most Middle Eastern families do the same.

It’s a tradition and a sign of cleanliness in the home. The cheap plastic slippers were still there, of course, when the Turkish shell hit their house at one in the morning – and when I arrived a few hours later, I found the same shoes, a few blown down the stairs but most still neatly lined up next to each other. Did one of the daughters choose the slippers with the plastic bows? Even the rescue workers – such as they are in the Kurdish province of Afrin – didn’t touch the shoes. They left one of the blood-soaked bedspreads where it was in the rain under the collapsed roof of the cheap breeze-block house. The bodies, of course, had gone.

https://de.share-your-photo.com/img/b1a780236e.jpg
The family’s plastic shoes remain after four members of the al-Khater family died when a Turkish shell hit their home in Maabatli, Kurdish Syria (Robert Fisk)

Since the identities of the victims are known – not, of course, that of the Turkish gunner who slaughtered this family – we should, perhaps, be better acquainted with them. Taha was 40 years old, his wife Amina the same age, Zakia was 17 and her bother Suliemann just 14. Safa, who is 19, survived – miraculously, with only wounds to her hands – but of course she is now an orphan.

Ironically, since the Turks are supposedly aiming at Kurdish YPG fighters, the very name of their military assault on Kurdish Syria, Operation Olive Branch, makes one’s gorge rise in the stone village of Mabeta, surrounded as it is by olive orchards – and the al-Khatr family were not Kurds but Arabs, refugees from the village of Tel-Krah further north.

https://de.share-your-photo.com/img/90eae795d5.jpg
Wreckage of the house struck by a Turkish shell that killed four members of the same refugee Arab family in the Syrian Kurdish village of Mabeta on Friday (Yara Ismail)

They were so new to Maabatli that Kurdish neighbours I spoke to did not even know their names, but in the Kurdish province – the village is about 10 miles from the city of Afrin – populations are mixed (there are Alawites, too) and no one was surprised when the al-Khatrs arrived on Thursday night.

Taha’s uncle already lived in the hilltop village and he seems to have put his refugee relatives in his storeroom – it was filled with the wreckage of sacks of grain, a fridge and frozen vegetables. The bodies must have been unimaginable.

“You come to our hospital here in Afrin to find out what happened,” Dr Jawan Palot, director of the Afrin Hospital, remarked to me with cynicism, well aware that The Independent was the first Western news organisation to visit Afrin since the Turkish attack. “You should see the dead when they come in – and the state of the wounded with the blood on them.” And there came forth the usual photographs of ferociously broken corpses.

https://de.share-your-photo.com/img/2eb489b002.jpg

And there followed, too, in the Afrin Hospital, a maudlin tour of the wards where the survivors of Turkey’s assault on the “terrorists” of Afrin, which began on 20 January, lay in their beds. There was Mohamed Hussein, a 58-year old farmer from Jendeeres, with head wounds and a closed eye, almost killed when the roof of his house caved in under air attack on 22 January. And Ahmad Kindy, eight years younger, who took his family out of the village when Turkey’s Olive Branch first cast its shadow over the land early on 21 January, but who unwisely returned and was hit in the back by shrapnel. “There were no YPG fighters there,” he said.

https://de.share-your-photo.com/img/e933ace3bd.jpg
Ahmad Kindy, 50. was wounded at his home in Jundeires on the first night of the attack (Yara Ismail)

But what if there were? Does that justify the pain of 15-year old Dananda Sido from the village of Adamo, terribly wounded in the chest and legs who turns from us in tears when we try to speak to her in the Afrin Hospital? Or that of 20-year old Kifah Moussa, who was working in her family’s chicken farm at Maryameen when Turkish planes dropped a bomb on the building at midday, killing an entire family of eight people beside her? She was hit in the chest. She smiles bravely at Dr Palot and myself, although it is unclear if she knows that her brother is among the dead.

https://de.share-your-photo.com/img/c995b718ab.jpg
Kifah al-Moussa, a Syrian Arab woman living among the Kurds of Afrin province, was working on a chicken farm in the village of Maryameen when a Turkish aircraft bombed the building (Yara Ismail)

Then there is the eighth-grade Kurdish schoolboy Mustafa Khaluf, also from Jendeeres, who heard the Turkish planes coming above his home and suffered severe leg wounds in the air strike. Close to him lies seven-year old Aya Nabo, with severe chest wounds, and who turns towards the wall beside her bed rather than talk to her doctor. Her sister says she was hit in the street on 22 January. After a while, it becomes a kind of obscenity to demand, constantly, the circumstances of this suffering. We all know who did this.

https://de.share-your-photo.com/img/ac9ea9aaf4.jpg
Eight-grade schoolboy Mustafa Khaluf heard the Turkish plane that, moments later, bombed his home and wounded him in the leg, also badly injuring his sister (Yara Ismail)

It is, however, almost equally obscene to recall the official Turkish version of this little massacre – for that is what it was for 34 civilians whose bodies were taken to the Afrin Hospital alone – which states that more than 70 Turkish jets bombed YPG Kurdish militias in Syria on 21 January. The Turkish news agency Anadolu stated blandly that Turkish aircraft bombed more than 100 “targets” – including an “airfield” (mysteriously unnamed) – on the first day of the attacks. The operations supposedly targeted YPG “barracks, shelters, positions, weapons, vehicles and equipment”.

Where, I wondered as I walked through the wards of Afrin Hospital, had I heard all this stuff before? Was this not a replay of every Israeli air assault on “terrorists” in southern Lebanon, of every Nato air strike on “Serb forces” in ex-Yugoslavia, of every US attack on Iraqi “forces” in 1991 and 2003 and on Afghanistan and on Mosul last year? All were “surgical” operations – carried out with absolute precision to avoid “collateral damage”, of course – and all left a litter of tens or hundreds or thousands of dead and wounded. Our air assaults – Israeli, Nato, American, Turkish – feed off each other in lies and victims.

To make his own calculated point, Dr Polat, who says he was studying medicine in the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk when he decided to return to Afrin in 2014 “to help my people in the war”, prints out his entire hospital records from the 21 January to midday on the 26 January and gives them to The Independent. According to Dr Polat, he had received only four YPG fighters dead and two wounded on the first day of the Turkish assaults, another seven fighters and nine wounded later in the week. Because these are real people, not just statistics, there is probably a journalistic duty to record at least some of the lives — and deaths — of these poor civilians.

Dipping into the hospital files – and taking names at random – I find that among the 49 civilian wounded brought here, were three-year-old Hamida Brahim al-Hussein, from Maryameen, who was wounded in the head in the chicken farm attack in which Kifah Moussa was injured. And two-year-old Hassan al-Hassan (wounded in the head). Then there was 70-year-old Asia Sheikh Murad from Shiya – with head wounds on 23 January. And 46-year-old Khaled Mohamed Ali Abdul Qadr with head wounds – again, for houses collapsed on their owners – in Maryameen. And Hamid Battal, aged 30, from Fkeiro and Ghengis Ahmad Khalil, whose warrior name did not prevent the 20-year-old from suffering stomach wounds at Midan Ekbes. Sudqi Abdul Rahman, who is 47, was wounded in the leg by shrapnel at Ruzio-Jendeeres on 25 January. A 75-year-old, Shamsa Moussa, is listed as receiving “multiple broken bones” in the village of Rajow on 23 January.

The list of the dead – 10 children, seven women, 17 men – is bleaker, for the hospital had not bothered to catalogue their wounds. They include infants. One-year old Wael al-Hussein, a refugee (who surely could not have known it) from the village of Jebbarah, was killed on 21 January, six-year old Moussab al-Hussein from Idlib (clearly from another refugee family) on the same day. 60-year-old Fatima Mohamed from the village of Arabo was killed in Jendeeres on 23 January. Abdulkader Menam Hamo from Jamo was killed on 24 January.

There will be no war memorials for them – as there are for Kurdish fighters in the military graveyard some miles from Afrin, most of them killed fighting Isis – and no record of their deaths, save, perhaps, for the cold lists in Dr Polat’s files — each stamped, in Kurdish, “Avrin Hospital”. There is no mention of Syria.

Children of Nusaybin speak of torture by Turkish soldiers

Children who were arrested by Turkish soldiers during Democratic Autonomy resistance in Nusaybin spoke of torture at the hand of Turkish soldiers in custody.

The trial of 67 people including 17 children who were arrested by Turkish soldiers in Mardin’s Nusaybin district during Democratic Autonomy resistance back in 2016 started at Mardin 4th Heavy Penal Court today. Eight of the children were brought to courtroom while nine children were forced to attend the trial via closed-circuit camera system (SEGBIS). Seven of the children refused to give their statements via SEGBIS.

One of the children, H.A. gave his statement to the court. He said that they had to stay in the basements during clashes and were captured by Turkish forces after they left the conflict zone. H.A. spoke about the torture in custody and said that he was forced to sign a statement written by the soldiers.

Another imprisoned child, H.E. said, “We, 25 children who were hiding at the basement surrendered. After we declared that we will surrender, the security forces who came to pick us made a video recording. They said that they would take us to our families but took us to another place instead. Soldiers who were lined eight by eight tortured us. They broke a stick on my back”.

Speaking at the courtroom N.A. told the judges about the torture and verbal abuse and said that they gave their statement to the prosecutor under pressure.

“When I told the prosecutor that I had been tortured, he told me: ‘Pray that you are not dead’” N.A. said.

N.A. told of the torture right after their capture: “When cameras were on or there were health workers around they were behaving good to us, saying that they are trying to help us But when the cameras were turned off they continued to torture us. They took me to another room. There were screams coming from the other part of the building. Two or three people attacked me in that room. They attempted to rape me”.

Another child D.A. also said that he had been sexually abused during the detention and rejected the accusations towards him.

Other children told of the same story and said that they were denied treatment by Turkish soldiers.

The judges denied the statements by the children and their lawyers and decided for the continuation of detention for all of the children. The hearing was adjourned to April 10.

Keine Gerechtigkeit für verletzte Kinder

In Şirnex wurden im vergangenen Jahr mehrere Kinder von Panzerfahrzeugen getötet oder verletzt. Die Prozesse kommen nicht ins Rollen.

https://de.share-your-photo.com/img/c1f5805782.jpg

In den Fällen kurdischer Kinder in Şirnex, die von gepanzerten Fahrzeugen der türkischen Armee oder Polizei überfahren worden sind, bleibt die Justiz auf der Strecke. Alleine vier Kinder kamen im vergangenen Jahr nach Zusammenstößen mit Panzerfahrzeugen ums Leben. Weitere Kinder wurden zum Teil schwer verletzt.

Tatverdächtiger nach erster Anhörung entlassen

Ömer Yeğit, der im Prozess um den gewaltsamen Tod der Geschwister Furkan (6) und Muhammed (7) Yıldırım angeklagt war, wurde nach der ersten Anhörung am 17. Oktober 2017 aus der Haft entlassen. Furkan und Muhammed waren ums Leben gekommen, nachdem ein Panzerwagen gegen das elterliche Haus fuhr. Der zweite Verhandlungstag ist für kommenden Donnerstag angesetzt. Die Rechtsanwält*innen haben wenig Hoffnung.

https://de.share-your-photo.com/img/8d660be953.jpg

Auch in anderen Fällen handelt die Justiz nicht. Während in manchen Fällen nicht einmal Untersuchungen eingeleitet werden, kommt es in den Ermittlungen anderer Fälle nicht zu strafrechtlicher Verfolgung.

Behördliche Hindernisse tauchen nicht nur im Verwaltungsapparat der Staatsanwaltschaft auf. Vor Ort sollen Angehörige der Opfer von Beamten öffentlicher Einrichtungen unter Druck gesetzt worden sein, um sie über gewisse ‚Angebote‘ von der Beschwerde abzubringen.

Täter weiterhin im Dienst

Mehr als zwei Monate sind bereits vergangen, nachdem am 2. November 2017 in Sûr (Amed) ein Panzerfahrzeug die achtjährige Ruken Cansırı anfuhr und schwer verletzte. Nach Angaben von Faysal Cansırı, dem Onkel des Opfers, sei zwar die Aussage der Angehörigen aufgenommen worden, doch zu Ermittlungen gegen die Polizisten sei es nicht gekommen. Die Beamten seien weiterhin im Dienst.

Bei einem Vorfall am 30. November in Silopî wurde der Fuß der zehnjährigen Çiğdem Başak in einer automatischen Bodenschwelle der Polizei eingeklemmt. Die beiden Polizisten, die die Bodenschwellen aufstellten, sollen vom Dienst suspendiert worden sein, Anklage wurde jedoch nicht erhoben. Die Zehnjährige befindet sich weiterhin in medizinischer Behandlung in der Universitätsklinik Elazığ (Xarpêt). Kerem Başak, ein Bruder des verletzten Kindes, gab an, seine Schwester habe einen Seitenbandriss erlitten. Man werde weiterhin an einer Anzeige festhalten.
