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

The family of Palestinian refugee Marwan Mohamed Husain continues to appeal for information over the condition and whereabouts of their relative, who has been forcibly disappeared by the Syrian regime for the seventh consecutive year.

Marwan was born in 1973 in AlMuzeireeb town, south of Syria. His parents are of Palestinian descent. He is the father of five children and worked at the Power Company in Deraa. He was arrested at a makeshift checkpoint in Deraa on April 25, 2014. 

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

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).
