Damascus: Student released on bail following torture

KURDWATCH, June 17, 2012—On June 4, 2012, the Criminal Court of First Instance in Damascus released the student Muhammad Farhad Sayda (b. 1988) from custody on bail. Employees of the Political Security Directorate arrested him at the Syrian-Lebanese border as he was entering the country from Lebanon on May 29, 2012. While in custody, Sayda was interrogated daily, sometimes for several hours, and was beaten with sticks and cables. He was accused of supporting the Free Syrian Army both financially and with weapons. The next hearing is scheduled for June 28, 2012.
