6 May, 2019 - by Francie Molloy


Sinn Féin MP Francie Molloy has welcomed news that imprisoned Kurdish political leader Abdullah Ocalan has seen his legal representatives.

Francie Molloy said:

“I welcome news that imprisoned Kurdish political leader Abdullah Ocalan has been allowed to see his legal representatives.

“He has now been held in a Turkish prison for over 20 years and in isolation for the last number of years.

“He has continually been denied access to his lawyers and, at times, to visits from family members.

“His isolation must end and he should be freed in order to support the peace process in the region.”
