Motion text

That this House condemns the Turkish Military curfew and absolute lockdown on the majority Kurdish village of Xerabê Bava, Korukoy, in South Eastern Turkey; records grave concerns about reports of executions in direct contravention of domestic and International Law; expresses substantial worry about allegations of sexual abuse, torture and the arbitrary imprisoning of residents and children by the Turkish Military without due process, trials or upholding the rule of law; notes the very real threat of starvation due to restrictions on access to food and water; and calls on the Government to make urgent representations to President Erdogan and the Turkish Government to cease this operation to prevent a massacre like that in Czire last year where over 100 civilians died in hellhole basements after an extended assault by the Turkish Military.
