Azad Abdul Razak Wali, a university student, was arrested by a security patrol in Aleppo on the afternoon of Sunday 18 April 2010. There was no warrant or other court order produced and he has remained in detention. He is a student at the University of Aleppo – Faculty of Engineering – Information Technology, and lives in the neighbourhood of Sheikh Maqsod in Aleppo.

We condemn and strongly deplore the arrest of university student Azad Abdul Razzaq Wali and express our deep concern about his fate. We demand his immediate release, the freeing of all prisoners of conscience and the abolition of the State of Emergency and martial law.
