The Enforced Disappearance of Citizen Omar Hashma Since 2013

of Citizen Omar Hashma

SNHR briefed the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary disappearances, of the case of the citizen “Omar Hashma” from Harran al Awamid town in Damascus suburbs governorate, age 21 at the time of his arrest and asked to request of the Syrian authorities to release him as he was arrested arbitrarily on January 1, 2013, as he was passing a checkpoint of Syrian regime forces in Adra al Ummaliya city in Damascus suburbs governorate, by military security forces of Syrian regime forces. Since then, his fate remains unknown for the Syrian Network for Human Rights as well as his family.
Syrian authorities deny enforcing the citizen Omar Hashma 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.
