ArDO and WCCR calls on the
Lebanese authorities to act fast for the release of all the Lebanese
detainees in Syrian prisons, such as the peaceful musical father
Albert Sherfen and the political leader Botros Khawand.
Aboun Sherfen was taken from
his monastery on October the 13th 1990 by the Arab Syrian
Army and taken to Syria a few days later. Mr. Khawand was taken from
his home in 1992.
We call on the Seniora
government to lift this issue and the rest of the Lebanese detainees
in Syrian jails to the United Nations.
We also call on President
Lahoud to use his good relation with the Syrian authority to end
this bad situation those Lebanese are living every day and night.
We call also on President
Bachar Assad and his government to look into their hearts and think
wise and have mercy on those innocent people. Their mothers and
fathers are suffering.
WCCR and ArDO call on the
official Red Cross and the Red Crescent and the Red David Star and
the Amnesty International and the Human Rights Watch to visit the
Syrian prisons and check on the health of those Lebanese prisoners
that their only crime was that they loved their country all too much
and wanted to defend the people from all kind of injustice.
May we come to the light in
this very painful issue.
Lebanon will never solve its
problems before the problem of those poor people is solved.
The real conciliation in
Lebanon is not completed until those mothers and fathers say so.
The Cedars revolution will
continue until we achieve a fair result for all our people.
