Briefing on Syria’s Human Rights Abuses PDF Print E-mail
Written by W. Thomas Smith Jr.   
Tuesday, 23 September 2008


A Lebanese delegation will brief the U.S. Congressional Human Rights Caucus, tomorrow, regarding Syria’s ongoing abuses against the Lebanese people despite the fact that the Syrian Army ostensibly withdrew its forces from Lebanon in 2005.

According to Congress’s official invitation to the delegation (a copy of which we’ve obtained among other documentation), the briefing, entitled, “Syrian human rights policies in Syria and toward Lebanese,” will focus on the countless numbers of Lebanese people who have disappeared from their homeland since the Lebanese Civil War, only to turn up in Syrian prisons or rumored to have been killed at the hands of the Syrian regime.

The abuses continue, and involve not only the kidnapped and imprisoned Lebanese, but the extortion of their families just to keep their loved ones alive or to receive information about them.

The briefing is scheduled for tomorrow (Sept. 24), 2:00 pm, Rayburn House Office Building, and is open to the media and the public.

Additional information will follow the briefing.
