Nedal Shaikh Mahmoud

SNHR briefed the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary disappearances, of the case of the citizen Nedal Shaikh Mahmoud from Al Raqqa city, age 25 at the time of his arrest, and asked to request of the Syrian authorities to release him as he was arrested arbitrarily on 16 March 2015, as he was passing a checkpoint related to Air security forces of government forces in Tartus city by the members of the checkpoint who were in military and civilian outfits and they took him to an unknown place. His family had no information about his fate or whereabouts since then, and his fate remains unknown for the Syrian Network for Human Rights and his Family as well.
Syrian authorities deny enforcing the citizen Nedal Shaikh Mahmoud 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.
