The Rojava committees themselves write on Twitter that they have been exposed to a “Turkish media and email campaign” started by “Nazi Unmasked and right-wing extremist FriaTider”.

“They first tried with the Financial Supervisory Authority who dismissed them, but now SEB is succumbing to their massive pressure,” the Rojava Committees write on Twitter.

SEB has previously said that it does not comment on individual customer cases.
