Mohammad al Yousef

SNHR briefed the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary disappearances, of the case of the citizen “Mohammad al Yousef” from Kafr Zita city in Hama governorate, age 30 at the time of his arrest, and asked to request of the Syrian authorities to release him, as he was arrested arbitrarily on March 3, 2013, as he was passing a checkpoint of Syrian regime forces in Latakia city by the members of the Air Security forces that are affiliated to Syrian regime forces. Since then, his family are unable to have any information to determine his fate or whereabouts and his fate remains unknown for the Syrian Network for Human Rights as well as his family.
Syrian authorities deny enforcing the citizen Mohammad al Yousef 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.
