Damascus: Supreme State Security Court sentences Kurd to four years imprisonment

May 15, 2010 – On May 4, 2010, the Supreme State Security Court in Damascus sentenced Hafiz Micwel Şindî (b. 1975, married) to four years imprisonment pursuant to Article 278. Şindî was arrested on June 1, 2008, in al‑Hasakah. As he was not represented by an attorney, the reasons for his arrest and conviction are unknown. Şindî’s family, which has thus far been denied contact with him, also has no information in this regard. Thus it remains open whether there is a connection between his arrest and possible activities in Syria or his stay in Cyprus—Şindî was a migrant laborer there until summer 2007.
