Al-Qamishli: Ismaʿil ʿAbdi forbidden to leave Syria

KURDWATCH, April 26, 2011—The German citizen Ismaʿil ʿAbdi, who was arrested in Aleppo on August 23, 2010 and subsequently released from the ʿAdra prison near Damascus on March 30, 2011, was sentenced by the sixth single military judge in Damascus on April 18. He was sentenced to seven months and seven days imprisonment pursuant to Article 307 of the Criminal Code. The prison sentence is thus equal to the length of time spent in pretrial custody. The time served will be applied toward the sentence. ʿAbdi told KurdWatch that despite this, he is not allowed to leave the country; the State Security Service in al-Qamishli has imposed a travel ban upon him.
