敘利亞被拘禁者恐遭酷刑
UA: 264/12 Index: MDE 24/076/2012 Syria

一名在敘利亞出生長大的巴勒斯坦男性Bassel Khartabil自從3月15日在大馬士革被捕後一直被單獨監禁。有當地消息來源指出,他遭受酷刑以及其他虐待,人身安全恐有危險。

根據當地消息來源,31歲的Bassel Khartabil 3月15日下班途中於大馬士革的Al-Mezzeh區被逮捕。他據信是被某敘利亞安全部隊所監禁。逮捕一週後,安全部隊成員與Khartabil曾短暫回到家中,Khartabil的電腦與文件被沒收。國際特赦組織目前無法得知其被拘禁的原因,但懷疑可能與敘利亞持續動亂和武裝衝突有關。

幾星期後,親戚打聽他的下落,Kafr Sousseh軍事情報部門的安全官員證實Bassel Khartabil被拘留,但並未透露他的行蹤、健康狀況、以及是否有被正式提出指控。依照國際人權標準,逮捕被拘留者後必須立即通知家屬,家屬也有權和被拘留者接觸。此標準也要求讓被拘留者有權依自由意志聘請律師,然而Bassel Khartabil沒有得到任何接觸律師的途徑。

幾個星期後,一個獲釋者告訴Bassel Khartabil的家人Bassel Khartabil被軍事情報部門拘禁在Kafr Sousseh並遭到酷刑以及其他虐待。這使得Khartabil的安危更加令人擔憂。Bassel Khartabil是糖尿病患者,但不確定他是否能得到藥物治療以及適合他的疾病的飲食,或者是否有得到適當的醫療評估。

請立即以阿拉伯文、英文、法文或您的母語寫下:
*對Bassel Khartabil自3月15日至今被單獨拘禁一事表示關切,並呼籲敘利亞政府給予他和家人接觸的權利、允許他依自由意志接觸、聘請律師,並施予妥善的醫療照護
*呼籲敘利亞政府釋放Bassel Khartabil,除非他立即被指控犯下國際公認的刑事罪行並以國際公認的審判標準審判之
*呼籲有關當局確保Bassel Khartabil不會遭受酷刑與其他虐待。

請在2012年10月30日前將聲援信寄至:

It never hits closer to home than when it happens to someone you know. Syria has never been further from most of our minds for us living Taiwan except for my good pal Christopher Adams, whose fear came true when Bassel Khartabil was detained in Syria this March 2012. We will be hosting an intimate roundtable talk event with Chris to understand what took place.

"Bassel was important for bringing internet sharing ideas to the Arab⋯⋯
world and was also important for getting internet people in the middle east to work together and he used the Internet and free culture to help get him out of Syria and to collaborate with the rest of the world.

"Think, if the Internet had existed during martial law in Taiwan, how would people have used it?"
- Christopher Adams

Up until this March 2012, Chris had been trying to secure ways for Bassel to leave the conflict stricken country but Bassel refused, saying he wanted to stay in his country so he could help his country by letting international news media and his friends outside know the truth about what was going on. We will be hosting an event to take action in solidarity to understand the conflict in Syria by understanding why Bassel gave and trying to give him a voice when he has given us so much without us knowing.
