The head of the Mosul Association says that the PKK has a secret prison in Shangal/Sinjar. In an interview with the official website of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), the Iraqi official said that the presence of the PKK in Sinjar has caused great problems, and for this reason, the PKK must be dismissed from the area.
Mr. Chato says the PKK has established a secret prison in Shangal and kidnaps Yazidi girls and boys. For this reason, the UN, Baghdad and the KRG must join to press the PKK to get out of this area. Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Kazemi has promised and must do so.
The KDP-affiliated official also claimed that the Iraqi government had previously helped the PKK.
