The Journalist Suleiman Ahmed's lawyer, Nariman Ahmed Rashid, previously revealed to ANHA agency that the Dohuk Asayish prevented his lawyer from meeting with his client.

The lawyer confirmed that the charges against him are false and baseless because Suleiman officially entered Rojava and has official residency in southern Kurdistan. On January 25, 2024, Roj News Agency held a press conference at the Metro Center in Sulaymaniyah, during which it confirmed: “The behavior of the Kurdistan Democratic Party is a dangerous indicator and political revenge. The Kurdistan Democratic Party and the regional authorities bear responsibility for his safety.” 

On January 29, 2024, the Democratic Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria urgently called on the Kurdistan Democratic Party authorities to release him. The Journalist Suleiman, who works as an editor at Roj News Agency, went to visit his family in the city of Aleppo on October 1, 2023, after the death of his father, Muhammad Ahmed.
