A Kurdish man Noori Ibrahim Sheilko arrested in Syria  14.12.2009   
By Khalaf Dahowd and ekurd.net staff   





December 14, 2009

(ekurd.net), Khalaf Dahowd,   According to Syrian Human Rights Committee MAD on 23 November 2009 at 4am, an armed patrol from state security division raided the home of Noori Ibrahim Shekho, a Kurdish man living in Sheikh Maqsood area of Aleppo city, Syria.

His family has not received any information about where he is being kept, and has no idea of the charges that may be brought against him. Noorti Ibrahim Sheikho was born in 1964 in Draqli village near Afrin town (Syrian Kurdistan, western Kurdistan). He is married with five sons.

This is another example of an arrest of a Kurdish man whose family is left without any information of his whereabouts, or of what is happening to him. This causes considerable distress to the families of those who have been taken in this seemingly arbitrary manner.

More than 2 million Kurds live in Syria, comprising nine percent of the population. They have long sought official recognition of the Kurdish language and culture.

The Kurds live in Syria (Syrian Kurdistan), mainly in the north bordering Turkey and Iraqi Kurdistan region. They comprise nine percent of the population and have long sought official recognition of the Kurdish language and their culture.

Future Movement advocates democracy and equal rights for Syria's one million Kurdish minority. The Kurdish language is not allowed to be taught in schools and tens of thousands of Kurds were denied citizenship after a 1960s census.

Freedom of expression remains tightly controlled in Syria, and security forces have sweeping powers of arrest and detention.

A total 1,500 people were arrested for political reasons in 2007 and hundreds more who were arrested in previous years remained in detention,
