Statement of 14 NGOs against the PKK in Syrian Kurdistan

After the approval of the new law of the self-proclaimed government affiliated to the PKK in northern and northeastern Syria to seize and confiscate the property of Syrian war refugees, the move provoked a strong reaction among the people and civil institutions. According to this law, the self-proclaimed PKK-affiliated administration, the property of those who left the areas under the control of this group for any reason during the war in Syria belongs to the administration and their owners are expropriated!

Ridwan Sido, a lawyer and member of the Syrian Kurdish Patriotic Association (ENKS), told the Kurdish media that 14 Syrian Kurdish civil society organizations had condemned the strange law in statements calling for its repeal as soon as possible.

It is not possible to confiscate the property of the refugees in any way because they have been forced to flee the country due to the war and many have been forced to leave their homes and property due to the policies of the self-proclaimed government,” he said. If any of these displaced people returns, what is the legal argument of the self-proclaimed government for confiscating its property?! This is extorsion and has no other definition.
