Hani Abd Al Aal

SNHR briefed the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary disappearances, of the case of the citizen Hani Abd Al Aal from Mahambal town in the suburb of Idlib governorate, age 34 at the time of his arrest, and asked to request of the Syrian authorities to release him, as he was arrested arbitrarily on 15 July 2012, as he was passing a checkpoint of the government forces in Jericho city. The members of the checkpoint took the citizen Hani Abd Al Aal to the political security branch in Idlib city. He was seen in Sednaya military prison that located in Sednaya city in Damascus suburb governorate in the early 2014. His family are unable to have any information to determine his fate or his detention center after that date , since then his fate remain unknown for his family and the Syrian Network for Human Rights as well.

Syrian authorities deny enforcing the citizen Hani Abd Al Aal to disappear, SNHR were unable to determine his fate until now, as is his family, and they are afraid of detention and torture in the event of repeating questions about him, as happened with many similar cases.
SNHR demanded the United Nations Committee on Enforced Disappearance to intervene with the Syrian authorities for his immediate release, and the release of thousands of cases of enforced disappearances and the need to determine their fate.
