BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:25 P.M.) – The Czech authorities have released the leader of the Kurdish PYD, Salih Muslim, after detaining him in Prague over the weekend.

Salih Muslim was previously detained by the Czech authorities on behalf of Turkey, who claims that the PYD leader participated in a terrorist act with the outlawed PKK in 2007.

Turkey is still seeking his extradition to Ankara, but have failed to get the Czech authorities to agree to thus far.

Salih Muslim is considered one of the most influential Kurdish leaders in Syria; he often visits Damascus to negotiate on behalf of the Kurds in the northern part of the country.

Told you so.
He’s Kurdish and Syrian, not Kurdish and Turkish. He’s from the political wing of the Kurdish movement and not the military wing. The Turks have no authority over him and hence the reason why the Czechs set him free. In a true democracy you do not jail political opponents who have not committed any crime, something Erdogan of Turkey would not understand. Kudos to the Czechs
