UNITED NATIONS, United States: Syrian authorities should release all those held by government forces and its militias, without due process, in some cases for years on end, the United Nations rights chief urged on Thursday (Friday in Manila), noting that activists, lawyers and human rights defenders had been particularly targeted. “In many cases, people are held incommunicado for weeks or months, in particular by Political Security, State Security, Military Security and Air Force Intelligence branches,” said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein in a statement.
