Kurdish man arrested after crossing to north Cyprus from south, accused of being PYD member

A Kurdish man who crossed into north Cyprus from south during the weekend was arrested on accusation that he is a member of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) which is considered a terrorist organisation by Turkey, reports said on Monday.

According to Turkish Cypriot media, the man, Mehmet Akgul, had participated in last month's protest against Turkish operation in Syria during a demonstration in Limassol, south Cyprus where he was holding the PYD’s flag.

Akgul was to a court in Lefkosa on Sunday and given a three-day remand.

He was accused of being a member of and defending an illegal organisation and for spreading propaganda on behalf of this organisation.

TRNC authorities says they were investigating the reasons for his crossing.
