Mahmut Alınak

Kurdish politician Mahmut Alınak has been arrested on suspicion of being associated or having links with KCK. Last month, he was arrested in Istanbul and later released because it could not be established that he had secret ties with KCK.

Prior to his arrest Mahmut Alınak wrote a letter, which says, “When you read this message, I will be in jail” and “Erdogan, who is attempting to establish a terror empire looks much like dictators”. He compared the empire which Erdogan is trying to create to the Iranian regime, adding, “There is no difference with the AKP policy and these regimes since Erdoğan suppress every dissenting voice and institution.”
