Aleppo: Travel bans repealed

KURDWATCH, June 14, 2011—Bans on travel, which are sanctions often used by the Syrian intelligence services against members of the opposition, have been repealed. A few days ago, numerous such travel bans were suspended. In the province of Aleppo alone, 400 people are to benefit from this measure, including Kurdish attorneys Radif Mustafa, Farhad Shahin, Fawzi ʿAli and Subhi al-ʿAli. Opposition members living abroad who have been issued a ban on travel — they can enter Syria but are not allowed to leave the country again — are also among the beneficiaries.
