Syria: Fear of torture and other ill-treatment/incommunicado detention/possible prisoner of conscience: Ma'rouf Mulla Ahmed (m)

, Index number: MDE 24/041/2007

Kurdish activist Ma'rouf Mulla Ahmed, aged 53, leading member of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Unity Party (Yeketi Party), was reportedly arrested on 12 August at a Syrian checkpoint on the country's border with Lebanon. He is now believed to be detained incommunicado at Branch 285 of State Security, in the capital, Damascus, and is at grave risk of torture and other ill-treatment. Amnesty International believes that he may be a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for his peaceful political activities.
