Syria frees three political prisoners

Three of the twelve people arrested last week for signing a petition calling on the government to mend relations with Lebanon have been freed.

Khaled Khalifa, Abbas Abbas and Kamal Chekho have been released according to Ammar al-Qorabi, the president of the National Organization for Human Rights in Syria.

Three are free - nine to go.

I can express no praise or commendation for a regime that should never have arrested them in the first place, and continues to arrest others at the same time. This is not "progress."

The people who singed the petetion at the heel of the UN resolution plated in the hands of the enemies of Syria and it,s people and if they did not see that then the arrest should open their eyes and wake them up to the planed destruction of Syria ,they will be released after undestanding the conspericy against Syria.
