Al-Qamishli: Faisal Naʿsu is free

KURDWATCH, September 27, 2011—On September 20, 2011, the Criminal Court in al-Qamishli ruled that Faysal Naʿsu will be released from custody. Charges pursuant to Articles 288 and 336 of the Criminal Code are pending against the politician. The next hearing is expected to take place before the end of September.
Following his arrest at the Aleppo airport, Naʿsu initially spent one day in Aleppo’s central prison before he was transferred to the Political Security Directorate in Damascus. He was held for a total of nine days and questioned about his activities in Sweden. He was subsequently detained for four days at the ʿAdra prison before a decision by the prosecution in Damascus moved him to the civil prison in al-Hasakah, where he was held for an additional four days.
