Aleppo: Participation in minute of silence in 2010 – one pupil free, two others still in custody

KURDWATCH, March 21, 2011—The single military judge in Aleppo released pupil ʿAgid ʿInad Khalaf from custody March 7, 2011. Khalaf and three other pupils were arrested on March 12, 2010 in connection with a minute of silence for the victims of the unrest in al-Qamishli. While one of the pupils was released shortly after the arrests, two others, Mihyaddin Muhammad Ahmad and Muhamad Fawaz Khalaf, remain in custody in Aleppo. They and ʿAgid ʿInad Khalaf are accused of criminal offenses pursuant to Article 307.
Following their arrest, ʿAgid ʿInad Khalaf, Mihyaddin Muhammad Ahmad and Muhamad Fawaz Khalaf were initially held in the Political Security Directorate’s al Faihaʾ pre-trial prison in Damascus for nine months. They were subsequently transferred to Aleppo. Agid Inad Khalaf’s father, Inad Khalaf (b. 1960, nine children, math teacher), was arrested on June 22, 2010 in connection with his son’s arrest. After three and a half months in custody at the Political Security Directorate’s al Faihaʾ pre-trial prison in Damascus, he was also transferred to Aleppo. The single military judge there released him from custody on October 3, 2010. No charges were brought. [Further information on the case]
