The Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) has appealed for the release of its former leader Saleh Muslim who was arrested in Prague early on Sunday on an international arrest warrant. The PYD says his arrest was immoral.
Turkey considers the PYD a terrorist organization and many of its members are on Turkey’s wanted list.
Ankara has already filed an extradition request and a Czech court will decide whether to hand Muslim over to the Turkish authorities.
