Issam Zaghloul

Syria

L4L would like to ask your attention for the situation of Issam Zaghloul, human rights lawyer from Syria. During his recent visit, Zaghloul’s colleague Muhanad Al Hasani has indicated that Zaghloul urgently needs the help of L4L and her volunteers.

On23 August 2011, Mr. Issam Zaghloul participated in a silent sit-in of lawyers organized on the same day in front of the Syrian Bar Association to denounce its silence with respect to the deadly repression of the peaceful protest movement and the arrest of numerous lawyers inSyriasince March 2011. Mr. Zaghloul had earlier on also participated in various actions aimed at denouncing the repression.

That same day, Mr. Zaghloul was arbitrarily arrested by members of the Air Force Intelligence Services at his home in Darya, Damascus. At this moment, Mr. Zaghloul has been detained incommunicado for nearly two months in the headquarters of the Air Force Intelligence Services inDamascuswithout access to his lawyer and family. No information has been given by the authorities about his condition nor the existence of charges against him. According to reliable sources, the health of Mr. Zaghloul would have seriously deteriorated over the past weeks.

L4L is concerned about the health of Issam Zaghloul, and thus would like to ask you to join the letter writing campaign we are organizing on his behalf.
