Joint Statement, ‘Syria: Free Key Rights Defenders’

March 17, 2014

Hivos has joined a coalition of more than 60 human rights organisations worldwide to call for the immediate and unconditioned release of the arbitrarily detained human rights defender Mazen Darwish and his colleagues Hani Al-Zitani and Hussein Ghareer.

Furthermore, the Syrian authorities should immediately carry out UN Security Council Resolution 2139 adopted on February 22, 2014, that demands the immediate end of arbitrary detention, torture, kidnappings, abductions, and forced disappearances and the release of all arbitrarily detained persons.
