, Index number: MDE 24/040/2004

Nine students were released on 9 May. Mohammad 'Arab and Mohammad al-Dabas were not released, reportedly because they refused to sign a commitment not to take part in any activities except for those organised by the pro-government student organisation. They are still detained incommunicado at the Department of Political Security in Damascus, where they are at risk of torture.
