Kuwait: 'Disappeared' appeal case: George Victor Salsa: The need for closure

, Index number: MDE 17/001/2005

George Victor Salsa "disappeared" following his arrest in the morning on 9 May 1991 from his home in Salmiyya, Kuwait. He was arrested by two members of the Kuwaiti security forces who woke him up, beat him and took him away. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) informed the Salsa family that he was being detained by the Security forces, but the organization lost track of him in August 1991. In August 1992 a medical doctor told George's parents that he had seen their son in the Military Hospital. Despite continuing appeals from the family to the Crown Prince of Kuwait, and attempts by Amnesty International to clarify his fate and whereabouts, no reliable information has been received.
