EUROF: full solidarity with DEV-IS President Koral Assam

EUROF (European regional Office of WFTU) expresses its solidarity with the president of the Turkish Cypriot trade union DEV-IS, Koral Assam, whose entry into the country was banned by Turkey.
Koral Assam was travelling to Istanbul with other trade unionists to attend a general assembly of the Petrol-İs trade union but the Turkish state refused him entry, apparently because of his trade union activity and his action in favour of the solution and reunification of Cyprus.

This action of Turkey against DEV-IS President Koral Assam is very serious, it is directed against forces fighting for solution, reunification and social justice.

EUROF condemns it and ask to all our affiliated to exspress sustain and solidarity to DEV-IS President.
