Damascus: Leading Azadî members released from prison

KURDWATCH, May 20, 2011—On May 17, 2011, the Appellate Court in Damascus ruled that leading members of the Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî)—Mustafa Dschumʿa Bakir, Muhammad Saʿid Husayn al-ʿUmar and Saʿdun Mahmud Shaykhu—will be released from prison early. The Appellate Court thus confirmed the verdict by the Second Criminal Court in Damascus, which the prosecution had appealed. The Second Criminal Court in Damascus originally sentenced the Azadî members to three years imprisonment on November 15, 2009. [Further information on the case]
