SNHR has briefed the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances on the case of the citizen, Ahmad Jnaid, from Baba Amr neighborhood in Homs city, a taxi driver, who was aged 43 at the time of his arrest. SNHR urged the UN body to demand that the Syrian authorities release him immediately. Mr. Jnaid was arrested arbitrarily on March 27, 2012, while passing through a checkpoint of the Syrian Regime forces. His fate remains unknown to SNHR as well as his family.
The Syrian authorities have denied any connection with the disappearance of Ahmad Jnaid. SNHR has been unable to determine his fate, as have his family members, who fear that they may be arrested and tortured themselves if they continue to ask about his whereabouts and fate, as has happened in numerous previous cases.
