Political prisoners to be released

The remaining members of the group of Damascus Declaration activists are going to be released.

30 were asked to come in for questioning 48 hours ago. 10 were allowed to go immediately. More have been freed since then. And the remaining few are now set to be released.

Activists are now calling for new laws to be immediately implemented to stop this abuse of power happening again.

When I read “spring” instate of “declaration” I was shocked! But in a good way, so correct it before readers get more shocked than Syria can handle ;)
Hoping for the day when we see a real spring in Damascus.

Oops! Thanks Dania.
