‘Turkish oppression of pro-Kurdish and opposition forces unacceptable’ - Maskey
Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has condemned the ongoing oppression of pro-Kurdish and other opposition forces in Turkey,
Mr Maskey said
“Sinn Féin strongly condemn the treatment of political prisoners facing overcrowding, ill-treatment and torture.
Of particular concern is the attempted oppression of the HDP and their democratically elected MPs.
The actions of the Turkish state are unequivocally anti-democratic and unjust.
Last week, Sinn Fein MPs demonstrated outside 10 Downing street against President Erdogan and to reiterate our support for those struggling for human rights, justice and democracy.
