Sameeh Karnaba

SNHR briefed the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary disappearances, of the case of the citizen Sameeh Karnaba from Erbeen city in Damascus suburbs governorate, age 35 at the time of his arrest and asked to request of the Syrian authorities to release him as he was arrested arbitrarily on 12 October 2012 as he was passing a checkpoint of Syrian regime forces, in Al Mutahaleq Al Janoubi area in Damascus city, by the members of air security forces of Syrian regime forces and they took him to unknown place. Since then, his fate remains unknown for the Syrian Network for Human Rights as well as his family.
Syrian authorities deny enforcing the citizen Sameeh Karnaba 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.
