Tenth Member of Damascus Declaration Arrested

The Internal Security Branch arrested Mr Marwan al-Auch on Tuesday 15/1/2008.

Mr al-Auch (from Damascus) is a geologic engineer, an independent syndicate member and a member in the national council of Damascus Declaration. The number of those arrested since the crackdown by security authorities started against Damascus Declaration?s activists in 9th December 2007 has risen by his arrest to 10 members.

The Syrian Human Rights Committee requests the immediate release of Marwan al-Auch as well as his nine colleagues, to finish arresting Damascus Declaration activists, to allow citizens to assembly and express their view-points and to guarantee their right to peacefully change the despotic rule dominating for the last 45 years.
