Al-Qamishli: Five months imprisonment for father and son

March 10, 2010 – On March 9, 2010, the single military judge in al-Qamishli sentenced Zibêr Hesen Mehmûd and his son, Mehmûd Zibêr Mehmûd, to six months imprisonment and a fine of 100 Syrian Lira, pursuant to Article 307 of the Criminal Code. Due to mitigating circumstances, the term of imprisonment was reduced to five months. Ebdilwehab Şêxmûs el-Faris, who was also charged, was acquitted. As Zibêr Hesen Mehmûd and his son have already spent five months and two days in custody, the sentence is considered served. The defense announced it would appeal the decision.
