The head of a Kurdish political party told The Jerusalem Post following protests over the past week over the death in Mahabad of a Kurdish woman, after an alleged sexual assault by an Iranian security agent, that the unrest could return depending on the court verdict.

“Iranian security agents are all over Kurdish areas,” Arif Bawecani, head of the Kurdistan Independent Party (Parti Serbesti Kurdistan, PSK), told the Post on Tuesday.

Bawecani, a Kurd originating from land that Kurds consider to be occupied Iranian territory, heads the liberal democratic oriented PSK Party. Founded in February 2006, it has offices in Oslo, Norway, and in Arbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan.

The Kurdish woman, Farinaz Khosrawani 25, allegedly jumped to her death last Monday from the fourth floor of the Tara Hotel in order to avoid being raped by an Iranian security agent.
