PEN International shocked at attack on the offices of Kurdish PEN in South East Turkey

LONDON, Jan 5, 2016 – This morning, PEN International received news from our colleagues at the Kurdish PEN Centre based in Sur Amed (Diyarbakir) of an attack on their offices on 2 February 2016.

PEN International is currently seeking further information about the circumstances of this attack. In the meantime, it calls on the Turkish authorities to carry out a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation into the attack, bring anyone responsible for any crime relating to the attack to justice and to ensure that all Kurdish PEN members are protected from harm and are able to exercise their right to peaceful free expression.
