Damascus: Recruit detained for two years without trial

KURDWATCH, May 28, 2013—The Kurdish recruit Aras Kamal Hasan (b. 1985 in al‑Hasakah) was detained on June 15, 2011, while completing his military service in Damascus. His brother Jawidan told KurdWatch: »We were only allowed to see him in the first months of his imprisonment in the presence of a guard for ten minutes at a time. For more than half a year we haven’t been able to visit him at all. We don’t even know when the trial is supposed to take place. All we know is that he is being accused of not having shot at demonstrators in the context of his service.«
