Türk: Massacres committed in Kurdistan must be revealed

Posted on: 07/04/2012

‘Unsolved Murders and Enforced Dissappearances Workshop’ organized by the Democratic Society Congress (DTK) started in Diyarbakır today. DTK Co-Chair Ahmet Türk noted that democracy cannot be established unless bloody eras are revealed, emphasizing the importance of revealing the massacres committed in Kurdistan. 

“We see today that it has been possible to establish democracy in Spain, Italy, Chile and Paraguay only by revealing paramilitary forces and facing the truth. Horrible things have taken place in Turkey since the establishment of the republic and it has been the Kurds who have suffered most. Kurds have always been considered a threat against the Turkish republic,” said Türk.

Türk also commented that the revealed 224 mass graves with 3,008 bodies lying in them should not be considered as a democratic step by the government but the result of intense efforts of human rights advocates.

The workshop will include discussions on three main subjects: The truth about unsolved murders and enforced disappearances, obstacles on the victims’ access to justice and administrative, social and political responsibility.
