Al-Hasakah: Arrest warrant against human rights attorney

KURDWATCH, November 26, 2011—On November 20, 2011, employees of the Political Security Directorate in al-Hasakah arrested the chairman of the Kurdish Organization for Human Rights and General Freedoms in Syria (DAD), Mustafa Khidir Oso (b. 1964, married, four children), for several hours. Oso was told that the Political Security Directorate in Damascus had issued a warrant for his arrest. After the bar association in al-Hasakah intervened, he was released from custody on the condition that he report to the Political Security Directorate in Damascus within three days. Prior to his arrest, Oso, who is planning a work-related trip to Geneva, had gone to the Immigration and Passport Authority in al-Hasakah to ask if his travel ban was still in effect. In connection with this, it was determined that there was an arrest warrant against him.
