By Amnesty International, , Index number: MDE 24/073/2005

This appeal case publicises one of the forms of harassment and human rights violations suffered by human rights defenders, amongst others, in Syria. It highlights cases of individuals who are forbidden from leaving the country, denied passports, and put under house arrest. Amnesty International calls upon the Syrian authorities to put an end to the patterns of restrictions of freedom of movement imposed on human rights defenders and reiterates its call to cease all other forms of harassment against them.
