ʿAfrin: Detainees released on bail

KURDWATCH, November 3, 2011—On October 26, 2011, approximately 200 demonstrators protested in front of the police station in ʿAfrin calling for the release of dissidents detained after demonstrating. Relatives of the detainees and other activists took part in the protests. After Kurdish attorneys representing the demonstrators sat down with local Baʿth party security personnel in ʿAfrin, the prosecution in ʿAfrin ordered that the prisoners be released as long as a bond of 20,000 Syrian Lira is provided for each prisoner. Eventually, the following persons were released: Bashar Husayn Husayn, Arsham Chawish, ʿAbdurrahman Yusuf, Muhammad ʿAmo, Sulayman Waziro, Muhammad Ibrahim Hasan, Goran Ahmad, Bassam ʿAbdurrahman, Shiyar Hajji ʿAbdu, and ʿAnwar Simo. All the activists – with the exception of Bashar Husayn Husayn, Arsham Chawish and ʿAbdurrahman Yusuf – were tortured in detention. [Further information on the case]
