On 10 May, Hanna Chalita, a member of the unauthorised Lebanese Forces Party (LFP), was arrested at the Syrian-Lebanese border. He has since been held incommunicado, reportedly at the Palestine Branch Detention Centre in Damascus where torture and ill-treatment of political detainees is routine. Hanna Chalita's lawyer approached the Syrian authorities regarding his client on 12 May, but was denied access to him.
