Syrian regime forces arrested a civilian in Dael city in Daraa suburbs on April 27

A man from Dael city in the northern suburbs of Daraa governorate, named as Fadi Omar Dagher al Hariri, was arrested on April 27, 2021, by members of Syrian regime’s air security forces as he was passing through a checkpoint in the city despite being amongst those who had previously agreed on a settlement, and was taken to an undisclosed location.
The arrest was conducted without any legal arrest warrant being issued by a court, with no member of Fadi’s family being informed of his arrest or whereabouts, and with his phone being confiscated, preventing him from contacting his family or lawyer. SNHR fears that he will be subjected to torture and ultimately classified as forcibly ‘disappeared’, like approximately 85 percent of all detained persons in Syria.
SNHR can confirm that at least 131,106 Syrian citizens are still detained or forcibly disappeared in the regime’s detention centers, constituting a grave threat to the detainees’ wellbeing, given the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
