ERBIL-Hewlęr, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', — The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has made an official protest to the Canadian government following the arrest of a well-known Kurdish singer.

“Upon recommendation from the region’s president, Massoud Barzani, the KRG has lodged a formal protest to the Canadian government about the arrest of well-known Kurdish singer, Sivan Perwer,” a foreign relations official in the regional government, Falah Mustafa Bakr, told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

The letter of protest has called on the Canadian government to make an official apology to the people of Kurdistan and to the singer himself.

Sivan Perwer is a political refugee. He has lived in Europe since the late 1970s. In the 1980s, he played a major role in encouraging Kurdish revolutions. He pays frequent visits to the Kurdistan region,

Internationally acclaimed Kurdish superstar Sivan Perwer is held by an OPP officer during a high-risk police takedown on Hwy. 427 Sunday night. Cops were tipped to armed men in a Hummer, but it was actually Perwer and his crew filming Canadian scenes for his TV show.
