Rights Groups Urge UN to Pressurize Syrian Gov’t to Free Prisoners

The Caesar Families Association, the Association of Detainees and the Missing in Sednaya Prison, and Families for Freedom have called on the United Nations to urge the Syrian government to free all prisoners and victims of enforced disappearance.

The NGOs said releasing prisoners should be a top priority for the Constitutional Committee which assumed duties as of late October.

A join statement by the human rights groups said tens of thousands of men and women have been held and tortured behind Syrian prison bars while the Syrian government refuses to grant them fair trials.

The NGOs called on the UN to implement confidence-building measures as was set by the UN Security Council Resolution 2254 for 2015 and to reveal the fate of forcibly disappeared persons.

The organizations urged the UN Special Envoy for Syria Geir Pedersen to make efforts to that end prior to constitutional talks.

The statement held civil society organizations responsible for the repercussions of ongoing violations of victims’ rights.

AGPS continues to call on the Syrian government to disclose the fate of hundreds of Palestinians forcibly disappeared in state-run dungeons.

AGPS believes that the arbitrary internment of Palestinian refugees in war-torn Syria amounts to a war crime.
