Al-Qamishli: Again demonstration participant tortured

KURDWATCH, August 17, 2011—On August 15, 2011, the investigating judge in al-Qamishli ruled that Saʿid Muhammad Muhammad will remain in custody. Charges have been raised against him for participating in riots, insulting the president, and resisting state authority. Muhammad was arrested on August 3, 2011 in al-Qamishli. While in pre-trial custody, he was tortured several times; his court date before the investigating judge was initially postponed due to visible evidence of torture. This is the third time within weeks that Saʿid Muhammad Muhammad was arrested for participating in dissident demonstrations.
