Instead of releasing prisoners of conscience in accordance with the agreement with the Russians | Regime security authorities release nearly 50 people from Daraa, mostly convicted of criminal cases

SOHR sources say that regime authorities released 48 prisoners from Daraa governorate, through Russian mediation, where all of them were supposed to be prisoners of conscience in accordance with an earlier agreement in late January last year, SOHR source, however, confirmed that the majority of those released are sentenced to criminal cases. The released prisoners hail from various areas in Daraa, including Tafas, Karak al-Sharqi, Kafr Shams, Giza, Jassim, Daraa city and others.

On March 11, SOHR sources said that the regime security services released today ten detainees from the countryside of al-Quneitra, after being arrested nearly two years ago in the military prison of Sednaya known as the “human slaughterhouse” in Damascus countryside.

According to Syrian Observatory sources, all those released had defected from regime forces in 2012, before being arrested after striking reconciliation deals with the regime in 2018, after the regime took control of areas that were under the control of the opposition factions in al-Quneitra province near the occupied Syrian Golan.

Meanwhile, the head of the Sa’asa branch told the families of the released detainees that their sons should strike new reconciliation deals after they were released in order to be allowed to move briefly in the province, before returning to their military barracks.
