Heiman Ghamari’s father: PJAK forces threatened me not to look for my son! 

Following the ongoing talks with the families of the victims of the PKK / PJAK crimes, IKHRW has arranged a conversation with the father of “Heiman Ghamari”, a member of PJAK.

It seems that the PKK / PJAK  does not intend to stop the fruitless deaths of Kurdish children and youth.

The approach of militant groups such as PJAK in the use of children in war is contrary to their commitment under the Geneva Convention not to use children under the age of 18.

Perhaps the deception and abduction of Kurdish teenagers, youth and, of course, children, and then arming and using them for the purposes and interests of the leaders of militant groups, is the only achievement and gift of those claiming to defend the rights of the Kurdish people.

In fact, this is a human rights violation that these groups are constantly insisting on.

The PKK  can easily achieve its goals by sacrificing children, because children have less perception of disaster on the battlefield than adults, in other words, they are bolder.

Sometimes they do dangerous things that adults are not willing to do. They spy, or carry explosives easily.

One of these children is “Heiman Ghamari”.


The full text of the conversation with Heiman’s father is as follows:

My son had only 15 days left in his military service and had returned home for a period of leave at the end of his term when he suddenly disappeared.

Is it possible that my son, who never went anywhere without prior notice, did not inform us!

We went to all the hospitals, police stations, etc. for almost two weeks to find his address, but there was no news.

After a while, just one day, a number belonging to Iraq called us and said that he had called on behalf of PJAK and announced that our son was among them, and said that we should stop looking for him…

After that, I tried very hard to get news from my son or bring him back, but wherever I was looking for him, he was far away from me and I even called that number several times, but they threatened me not to look for my son anymore, since he would not be allowed to return anyway.

We, who were disappointed, the only thing we could do was to wait for our son’s news, and we made sure there was always somebody home to pick up the telephone at all times, but contrary to our expectations, in the first phone call we received, they announced my son’s death!

We were told that in one of the areas where there was a conflict and our Heiman was killed!!

I asked them to see my son’s body or where he was buried, but they only said one thing to me and said that your son is dead and do not look for him, and if anyone called you and said that he was alive, not believe it!!

This made me suspicious of this case, after all, how can they announce the death of our son and then say that there is neither a corpse nor a grave! I’m sure my son is still alive, because if Heiman was dead, he must have been buried somewhere.

So why not show us where he was buried? And if he is alive, why don’t they tell us? Why did they emphasize that if someone told us that Hyman was alive, we should not believe and think that our son was dead ?!
