Journalist Suleiman's lawyer, Nariman Ahmed Rashid, revealed to ANHA agency that the Dohuk Asayish prevented his lawyer from meeting with their client, and that his file is with the intelligence service of the party. He stressed that the charges brought against their client are false and baseless because he officially entered Rojava and has official residency in southern Kurdistan. His lawyers have not been able to meet with him yet.

Journalist Suleiman, who works as an editor at Roj News Agency, had gone to visit his family in the city of Aleppo on October 1, 2023, after the death of his father, Muhammad Ahmed. During his return from Syria KDP kidnapped him at the Faysh Khabur crossing.
