Family Appeals for Information over Forcibly-Disappeared Palestinian Refugee in Syria

The family of Palestinian refugee Yousef Shteiwi has appealed to the international human rights organizations and concerned parties in Syria to reveal the condition and whereabouts of their father, who has been forcibly disappeared by the Syrian regime for the 8th year running.

The family called on ex-prisoners in Syria who have met Yousef or have pieces of information about his current location and condition to reach out to AGPS.

Yousef was born in 1968. He is the father of seven sons and daughters. He was arrested on November 06, 2013 at a regime military checkpoint in Deraa, south of Syria, while he was on his way to his workplace.

AGPS has documented the secret detention of 1,797 Palestinian refugees in state-run penal complexes across war-torn Syria, among them 110 women and girls.

AGPS has also documented the death of over 550 Palestinian refugees under torture in Syrian government lock-ups, including women, children, and elderly civilians.

Affidavits by ex-detainees have 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).
