  1. Veteran activists jailed for 7 years

    SYRIA: A court in Damascus sentenced a veteran labour rights activist to seven-and-a-half years in jail on Sunday for belonging to “a secret organisation.”

    Abbas Abbas, who had already been jailed for 17 years under the rule of late president Hafez al-Assad for belonging to the banned Communist Labour Party (CLP), was arrested with three of his comrades in May 2009.

    The remaining three received a four-year sentence each. Two of them had also spent years as political prisoners affiliated to the CLP, which was decimated by the ruling Baath Arab Socialist Party in a wave of repression in the 1980s.
