The director of Erbil International Airport rejects the news of the arrest of people because of their political views and declares that the news about the arrest of three people is incorrect.
Ahmed Hoshyar, director of Erbil International Airport, said in a statement to the KDP website that no one was arrested at Erbil International Airport for his political views. The Democratic Union Party (PYD) talks about the arrest of three of its members at Erbil International Airport. This is not true, but there was a problem with their passports or their residence or other documents, sometimes delayed for several hours, and if his documents are not complete, he is returned to the place from which he came.
He added that the airport deals with official documents.
