Palestinian Refugee Released from Syrian Prison

Palestinian refugee Shadi Ahmad Abyu Seyam and another 24 prisoners have been released from Syria’s state-run prisons.

The reasons for Shadi’s incarceration remain unknown. The refugee, born in 1983, could not reach out to his family.

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 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 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).
