Syria: Stop torture of mother of nine (closing text)
On 19 February, Mu'eyna Muhammad Yusef Sa'adu was released without charge from the Military Intelligence Head Quarters in the capital, Damascus. She had been detained since 14 January following her arrest by Syrian military security officers as she re-entered the country, after 24 years as an exile in Jordan. She had apparently been granted a passport and given permission to return to Syria by its embassy in Amman, Jordan.
