On 25th January I published an article based on a video posted to both You Tube and Facebook. I have received a note from Ahmet Sezer who says:
None of the words translated correctly... They ARENT saying what the subtitles suggests.
Since I cannot speak Turkish and I have now seen a comment on You Tube itself that gives a different translation I am not in a position to challenge this.
In these circumstances I have found it necessary to remove the post.
The Turks are committing real atrocities against the Kurds and publishing inaccurate or false information does not help their cause.
I remain a firm and committed supporter of a free Kurdish State.
Apologies to all my readers.
