PUK Security Forces Detain and Torture Two Young Brothers: Activist

ERBIL — The security forces affiliated with the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) recently detained and tortured two minors in New Halabja on a false accusation, a Kurdish activist said.

Ragaz Kamal, the coordinator at 17 Shubat Organization for Human Rights, said the two brothers are only 12 and 14 years old.

“One of the teens said he had passed out during the first torture,” Kamal wrote on Facebook, saying that the two were released after police investigated the case and ruled out the accusations.

The father of the children has now filed a complaint against the PUK security forces in Halabja.
