Al–Qamishli: Military court sentences Xalid Kenco

February 10, 2010 – On February 8, 2010, the single military judge in al‑Qamishli sentenced Xalid Mio Kenco to four months imprisonment and a fine of 80 Syrian Lira for knowingly spreading false or exaggerated information abroad, pursuant to Article 287 of the Criminal Code. As Kenco has already spent 113 days in prison, the remaining sentence to be served amounts to seven days. Due to Kenco’s failure to appear, his attorneys were refused entry at the pronouncement of the sentence. They declared they would appeal the decision. Xalid Mio Kenco has been a refugee in Turkey since January 19, 2010. [Further information on the case]
