State Department: Worldwide Caution - Ocalan Trial and Kurdish Reaction - Public Announcement, May 28, 1999


Worldwide Caution - Ocalan Trial and Kurdish Reaction - Public Announcement
May 28, 1999

The trial of Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) leader Abdullah Ocalan, who was captured and returned to Turkey earlier this year, is scheduled to commence May 31. The length of the trial cannot be predicted. Violent demonstrations took place throughout Europe and in several other areas worldwide at the time of his capture and could recur in response to the judicial proceedings.

U.S. Government personnel and facilities are taking appropriate security measures. Americans traveling or residing abroad are urged to review their personal security in light of the above and to contact the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate by telephone or fax for up-to-date information on security conditions. In addition, U.S. citizens planning to travel abroad should consult the Department of State's Public Announcements, Travel Warnings, Consular Information Sheets, and regional travel brochures.

This Worldwide Caution - Ocalan Trial and Kurdish Reaction Public Announcement supplements the Worldwide Caution Public Announcement dated March 17, 1999, and the Worldwide Caution Public Announcement regarding Serbia-Montenegro dated April 30, 1999. This Public Announcement expires August 31, 1999.
