According to the Syria Committee for Human Rights (MAD), three Kurdish citizens in the city of Manbej in Syria were arrested by Political Security on Friday, September 2009.
These people are:
Mahmoud Subhi Shekho born – Kobani town
Mahmoud Ahmed Khashman born Kobani town
Mustafa Ibrahim Ali – Kobani town
The reason for their arrest, and their whereabouts are still unknown seven weeks later.
It is known that Political Security forces have arrested many Kurds in recent years, in contravention of the Constitution of Syria. The State of Emergency is being used to justify arbitrary arrests and indefinite detention.
International Support for Kurds in Syria Association – SKS stands together with those who are calling for these people to be either charged or released, and for the State of Emergency to be lifted.
