His family paid an officer a sum of money to know his exact location, the officer informed them that he was put in Sydnaya prison on behalf of Palestine branch then he transferred back to Palestine branch.
HGRs CEO states that the continuous disappearance of a victim causes a big deal of suffering to the family and the Syrian Authorities must unveil his fate or put him under the protection of the law.
The case of this detainee is one of many cases who got systematically arrested by the Authorities for political reasons and were taken to secret detaining facilities and these practices must stop.
