Syria / Italy: Forcible return/Incommunicado detention/fear of torture or ill-treatment

By Amnesty International, , Index number: MDE 24/050/2002

Amnesty International is concerned at the reported incommunicado detention of Syrian citizen Muhammad Sa'id al-Sakhri, his wife Maysun Lababidi and their four children. Italian authorities forcibly returned them to Syria on 28 November and their relatives have not heard from them since. It is feared that they may be held at one of the Syrian intelligence interrogation centres in Damascus, where torture of detainees is routine.
