UK: PEACE IN KURDISTAN CAMPAIGN: Kurdish community leaders questioned by MI5 officers (Press release, pdf):

"Peace in Kurdistan has been informed that over the last few days several leading members of the Kurdish community in the UK have been questioned by members of MI5.

As far as we can establish to date, a total of 15 individuals were visited at their homes by officers who identified themselves as British security. They informed our Kurdish friends that their movements had been under surveillance for some time and that some of their activities constituted a breach of UK law. Furthermore they were instructed that they should cease these activities forthwith.

There has been absolutely no suggestion that the individuals involved have been engaged in any criminal or illegal activities whatsoever... Peace in Kurdistan is extremely concerned at this latest development which we believe amounts to a further attempted criminalisation of the Kurds.
