Syria: Repressing dissent: Pro-democracy activists on trial in Syria
Twelve pro-democracy activists, all Syrian nationals, are being tried before the Damascus Criminal Court. The charges that they face include “weakening national sentiment” and they could face up to 15 years’ imprisonment if convicted. They are being held in poor conditions and at least eight of them were subjected to torture and other ill-treatment. In this document Amnesty International calls on the Syrian authorities to release immediately and unconditionally the 12 activists and to drop all charges against them.
