Syria Kurds using arbitrary detention, unfair trials: Amnesty

Kurdish fighters are pictured during clashes with fighters from the Islamic State group on the outskirts of Syrian city of Hasekeh, June 30, 2015Kurdish authorities in northern Syria are arbitrarily detaining critics and alleged Islamic State group sympathisers and denying prisoners fair trials, rights group Amnesty International said on Monday. In a new report, Amnesty said it had documented several cases of authorities detaining people with little evidence, on occasion as retribution for criticising the ruling Democratic Union Party (PYD). “The PYD-led autonomous administration cannot use their fight against terrorism as an excuse to violate the rights of individuals under their control,” said Amnesty’s senior crisis adviser Lama Fakih.
