Urgent Action: Syrian Father Of Three Missing For 1403 Days (Syria: 101.17)


Today is Ali Mohammed Mostafa’s 55th birthday. He is a father of three who has been forcibly disappeared for nearly four years, and his family still has no information about his fate or whereabouts. On 2 July 2013, Ali went missing after being taken from his family home in Damascus.


Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:
  • Urging the Syrian authorities to immediately disclose the fate and whereabouts of Ali Mohammed Mostafa;
  • Calling on them to release him immediately, unless he is to be charged with a recognizable offence, in line with international law and standards;
  • Urging them to ensure that pending his release, he is protected from torture and other ill-treatment, granted access to his family and lawyers, and any medical treatment he may require.
