Syria: Further information on fear of torture or other ill-treatment/ possible prisoner of conscience/ health concern: Mustafa Jum’ah (m)
Mustafa Jum’ah, Kurdish political activist and prisoner of conscience, is now being detained at ‘Adra prison in the capital, Damascus. He had been kept in incommunicado detention for almost a month following his arrest by Military Intelligence officers on 10 January 2009. Amnesty International considers that Mustafa Jum’ah is no longer at risk of torture or other ill-treatment. However, the organization will continue to follow the case closely.
