Damascus: State Security Court postpones hearing for leading Yekîtî members again, attorneys boycott court

KURDWATCH, March 17, 2011—On March 13, 2011, the Supreme State Security Court in Damascus postponed the hearing against Hasan Ibrahim Salih, Maʿruf Ahmad Mula Ahmad and Muhammad Ahmad Mustafa until May 8, 2011. The three leading members of the Yekîtî were arrested on December 26, 2009. Attorneys for the defendants did not appear at the hearing on March 13 with the justification that they have thus far been denied the opportunity to speak with their clients. Twenty attorneys representing the defendants signed a statement claiming the Supreme State Security Court in Damascus is using illegal measures. [Further information on the case]
