Ugur Sakar had set himself on fire in front of the court house in Krefeld, Germany on February 20.
Ugur Sakar had been receiving treatment in a hospital in Duisburg since.
Sakar’s doctors announced that he lost his life this morning. The doctors had banned visits following Sakar’s hospitalization as his situation was critical, and had not allowed the police to take his statement on February 20.
Before his protest, Ugur Sakar left a note pointing out the isolation imposed upon Ocalan.
Sakar had criticized the silence of European countries and protested the Committee for the Prevention of Torture’s (CPT) silence in the face of the hunger strikes.
Sakar had concluded his letter with: “I condemn the German state’s police brutality and political pressure agains Kurds. I invite each and every Kurd to fight for a free life, rather than living as a slave."
