We express our sorrow and anger for the cowardly murder of the three Kurdish women militants last night in Paris, France. We extend our most sincere condolences to the families of the assassinated militants, to their organizations and to the whole Kurdish People.

The French authorities bear a huge responsibility for their failure to prevent these cold-blooded executions in the center of Paris, especially since it is widely known that they closely tail after the Kurdish militants in France, considering them as “PKK terrorists”. Consequently, the French authorities must solve as fast as possible this crime and bring both its perpetrators and its instigators to Justice.

We condemn in the strongest way the insolent and slanderous allegations of Ankara’s regime, that this crime was an “internal execution”. This last insult to the three murdered militants, and to the movement of the Kurdish People as a whole, makes us wonder: Why the Turkish authorities feel the need to attempt to disorientate the crime investigation before it even starts?
