After appeals from the SOHR, the “Asayish” releases two civilian activists after their arrest about two months ago. The SOHR renews calls for the release of all civilian activists and the prosecution of members of the “ISIS”
After intensive moves and appeals by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the internal security forces (Asayish) released this morning both Ahmed Mousa Al-Hashloum and Hassan Fawaz Al-Khalil, two civilian activists who were arrested about two months ago, on August 10, with others in al-Raqqa. At that time, the internal security forces arrested Salah al-Kata’ the director of the media office in “Afaq” Organization, and Eyas Alabo media activist in the same organization, as they were arrested from the Greek house, and Ahmed Hashlom Chairman of the Board of “Inma’e” Organization in al-Raqqa, in addition to 3 others, against the backdrop of charges against them for dealing previously with the Islamic state (ISIS) and others for dealing with the Turks, based on information from the US Central Intelligence Agency. “
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also learned that Hamza al-Mulla, the coordinator of the community dialogue in a French funded community dialogue and civil peace program, was arrested 12 days ago. Sources told the Syrian Observatory that there were promises for his release, but that he was not released yet. About a month ago, four of the six men arrested in the Greek house were released after the charges were found to be malicious and untrue, reliable sources said. The sources said: “About a month ago, Jamal Mabrouk was arrested with his son in an airdrop operation carried out by the international coalition forces, as Mabrouk is the general coordinator of a US-funded program, and then released about two weeks ago on the same day that the regime forces crossed from al-Tapqa city. “
Last August, al-Raqqa city which is under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces, witnessed a great dissatisfaction among the public, against the backdrop of arbitrary arrests carried out by the internal security forces and counter-terrorism forces, during August, as they arrested activists who work within civil society organizations working to rehabilitate Infrastructure, agriculture support, dam restoration and educational support.
The release of the two dissidents came after the previous two were released as a result of the efforts of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The SOHR has previously appealed to the SDF to release the four detainees, and all civilian activists, and to hold those responsible for arbitrary arrests accountable and to reduce the phenomenon. The SOHR also appeal for “Defendants” to be brought to justice to receive fair trials, if found guilty. At the same time, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights calls for the release of all political opponents of all Syrian components in areas under the control of the SDF, and calls for the prosecution of ISIS operatives and not to release them without trial.
