Wednesday, February 17, 2016 the Turkish security forces stormed the apartment of Sawo Ide Oshana in Midyat, Turkey. The police took his computer and other notes. Thereafter, Sawo and wife were taken into interrogation. Today in the afternoon, the police released Sawo’s wife but he was arrested on charges of collaborating with a terrorist organization. According to the information Assyria TV got the police found pictures of the Assyrian security forces GPF in Syria and NPU in Iraq in Sawo’s computer, as well as a report on Khabour and the assassination of Dawod Jendo in April 2015, which Sawo is co-author to, recognized as evidence against Sawo.
Irinically the Khabour Report and other notes have nothing to do with Turkey. On the contrary, the Report showed how the Kurdish PYD/YPG is terrorizing Assyrians in Syria. The fact that Turkish police is using the pictures of Assyrian security forces GPF and NPU and a report on PYD’s actions in Syria as evidence to arrest Sawo Ide Oshana, again shows in what state of mind Turkey is. In several cities an outright war between Turkish security forces and the PKK-guerrillas in ongoing. Turkish authorities and security apparatus appears increasingly aggressive and paranoid.
