Several works by jailed PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan sat on a bookshelf alongside a Turkish-language copy ofThe Kurds and Kurdistan by the late KDPI

Based on characteristics collected at the time of organ recovery, the KDPI
would rank the potential post-transplantation survival of each deceased-donor kidney in relation to that of all other recovered kidneys, so that, for example, a kidney with a KDPI
of 0-3 would be recognized as having an expected survival potential lower than that of 29% and greater than that of 70% of recovered kidneys.
For the time being this subterfuge is not dangerous for Tehran because it is not organised, in spite of the existence of two Iranian Kurdish political parties, both with long experience of politics and armed struggle: the KDPI
