Palestinian Refugee Wasim Jumu’a Forcibly Disappeared in Syrian Prisons for 5th Year

Palestinian refugee Wasim Jumu’a has been secretly held in Syrian government prisons for the fifth consecutive year.

Wasim, a resident of Syria’s Khan Dannun camp, in Rif Dimashq, was arrested by Syrian security forces on April 29, 2016. His condition and whereabouts have been shrouded in mystery.

AGPS has been deeply concerned about the upsurge in the number of Palestinian victims of torture and enforced disappearance in Syria.

Over 1,790 Palestinian refugees have been secretly held in Syrian government dungeons since the outburst of deadly hostilities.

AGPS also documented the death of over 600 Palestinian refugees under torture in Syrian government lock-ups, including women, children, and elderly civilians.

Affidavits by ex-detainees provided evidence on the involvement of Syrian government officers in harsh torture tactics, including electric shocks, heavy beating using whips and iron sticks, and sexual abuse against Palestinian detainees, in a flagrant violation of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, commonly known as the United Nations Convention against Torture (UNCAT).
