It was 8 years ago. Three Kurdish activists were found dead in front of the Kurdistan Information Center in the heart of Paris (10th arrondissement) on the night of January 9 to 10, 2013. Among them, Sakine Cansiz, one of the founders of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK ). The perpetrators of this triple murder still remain unknown. In France, investigators point to the involvement of Turkish intelligence services. An implication that they denied in 2014. A legal case is still underway for “complicity in assassinations in connection with a terrorist enterprise” and “association of terrorist criminals”. The Kurds in France also accuse Turkish intelligence as well as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. They demonstrated on Saturday in Paris to pay tribute to the activists and ask for light on this affair. Reportage.
