A couple of days ago, the intelligence service of the Syrian Arab Republic deprived the famous thinker and chairman for Liberal Association in Syria Mr. Nabil Fayyad of his liberty. Today it is no longer possible to contact Mr. Fayyad since the intelligence service has confiscated his personal computer, cellular phone and cut off his home phone.

The conditions in the Syrian prisons, especially for representatives of the Opposition and critics of the regime, are extreme and unbearable. It is well documented that torture occur, which makes the probability that Mr. Fayyad will survive the time in prison exceedingly insignificant, since he is suffering from a heart disease.

In the name of humaneness and the free word we appeal to You to pay attention to Mr. Fayyads extremely miserable situation and to request from the Syrian authorities to an immediate release of Mr. Fayyad with his life intact.
