The Press Office of the National Coordination Body for Democratic Change has released the following statement: Statement regarding the detention of Ahmad Al Israwi, member of the NCB
Syrian security forces have done the cowardly act of arbitrarily detaining our colleague Ahmad Al Israwi this afternoon, Sunday 8/7/2012. Ahmad is a member of National Coordination Body for Democratic Change’s Executive Bureau. He was taken away from the architect’s union in Reef Dimashq. Mr. Al Israwi was part of the NCB delegation to the conference of the Syrian opposition in Cairo a few days ago, his efforts were crucial for the success of the conference.
We at the National Coordination Body for Democratic Chance strongly condone this cowardly act by the Syrian regime, we hold the regime full responsibility for his mental and physical wellbeing.
We condemn the arrest of Ahmad Al Israwi and hold the Syrian authorities fully responsible for his physical and mental. We demand the disclosure of his fate. We demand he be released immediately.
We at the National Coordination Body condone the inhuman and irresponsible acts of the security services. We respond to their actions by saying: Arresting our members and threatening us will not hinder our work for the Syrian people’s revolution for freedom and dignity.
Freedom For Ahmad Al Israwi! Freedom for all political prisoners detained by this oppressive regime! Freedom for Syria!
