On the fifth anniversary of the writer and the peace activist, Hussein Iso, was arrested by the Syrian regime, the Syrian organizations condemned the continuation of the Syrian regime in exercising to hide the, detainee Hussein Iso, forcibly. The organizations pointed out in their statement issued on Sunday 4 September 2016 in conjunction with the day on which Syrian peace activist ,Hussein Iso, was arrested to the need for the application of UN resolutions issued against the Syrian regime and demand the release of detainees and the statement reads as follows:
Today is the fifth anniversary of the arrest and hiding peace activist, Hussein Ali Issa known as Husain Iso, the Syrian Kurdish writer and the writer of media. He was the most prominent leaders of the protest peaceful popular movement in Hasakah Province and one of the main figures in the civil action before the Syrian revolution and in its start, he did not get involved in any violent activities. Hussein Esau is the leading activists of reformist thinking in Syria. On 4 September about 1 am in 2011, a patrol of the forces of the Syrian air force intelligence, headed by Colonel Jamil Hassan arrested Hussein Esau in front of his house in ” Mershed” Neighborhood in Hasakah City after calling him on 3 Septemberand asking him to come then hiding him forcibly until this day without acceptance of contacting with him or visiting him by his family or volunteer lawyers to defend him. It was said through frequent information about the detainees who have been released recently that he is in the air Force intelligence branch in Mazza in the capital, Damascus, and his health is so bad because he was a patient in heart before he was arrested and subjected to inflammation of the nerves in the detainee. It is believed that he has not been give medicines and he was tortured repeatedly
In January 2012 the family of Hussein Iso in coordination with civilian activists in Hasakah City arranged a protest stand in front of the Justice Palace in Hasakah City to demand the disclosure of his fate but the authorities procrastinated and did not died promises to reveal the fate of the detainee or tell his place
Still the issue of Hussein Iso, where 5 years passedof his arrest, along with thousands of cases of enforced disappearance by the Syrian regime authorities against civil activists is unclear even though the regime issued several presidential decrees amnesty, but they included few founders of the Syrian popular protest movements. The military factions belonging to the opposition conducted dozens of negotiation operations and exchange of prisoners with the detainees of the Syrian regime for the opposition supporters and their families and even their fighters and civil activist issues kept without the slightest interest by both parties.
The Hussein Esau arrest and his hiding forcibly and as we believe that he was tortured , includes a number of sufficient violations to condemn the Syrian regime and those who made the process of arrest and hide. We, in the undersigned organizations,condemn the arrest and hide the activist Hussein Iso, and being exposed to torture despite calls by the international community to end enforced disappearances, torture and other ill-treatment practices in the detention centers in Syria. As UN Security Council Resolution No 2139 in February 2014 called for the release of all those detained arbitrarily, and the call in the presidential statement adopted by the Security Council of the United Nations on 17 August 2015 was repeated. .
The Syrian authorities should listen to these claims without further delay, and to release immediately and unconditionally Hussein Iso, and all those detained only for their peace exercises for their human rights. .
The UN Security Council should ensure the effective and immediate implementation of UN Resolution 2139, and the arrival of independent international observers with obstacles to all persons deprived their liberty
