The citizen Hussein Qaydouh Enforced to Disappear since 2012

Hussein Qaydouh

SNHR briefed the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary disappearances, of the case of the citizen “Hussein” from M’arbilit town in Idlib governorate suburbs, age 32 at the time of his arrest and asked to request of the Syrian authorities to release him as he was arrested arbitrarily on November 11, 2012, as he was passing a checkpoint of Syrian regime forces, in al Dabousiya village at Syrian- Lebanese border in Homs governorate western suburbs. Since then, he was not seen at any prison or security branch and his fate remains unknown for the Syrian Network for Human Rights as well as his family.
Syrian authorities deny enforcing the citizen Hussein Qaydouh 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.
