Se poderem vão ao site e ajudem. Bloguem e reenviem a notícia.
Só espero que com a situação na Síria não seja tarde de mais.


On March 15, 2012, Bassel Khartabil was detained in a wave of arrests in 
the Mazzeh district of Damascus. Since then, his family has received no 
official explanation for his detention or information regarding his 
whereabouts. However, his family has recently learned from previous 
detainees at the security branch of Kafer Sousa, Damascus, that Bassel 
is being held at this location.

Bassel Khartabil, a Palestinian-born Syrian, 31, is a respected computer 
engineer specializing in open source software development, the type of 
contributions the Internet is built upon. He launched his career ten 
years ago in Syria, working as a technical director for a number of 
local companies on cultural projects like restoring Palmyra and Forward 
Syria Magazine.

Since his arrest, Bassel's valuable volunteer work, both in Syria and 
around the world, has been stopped. His absence has been painful for the 
communities that depend on him. In addition, his family, and his fiancée 
whom he was due to marry this past April, have had their lives put on hold.

Bassel Khartabil has been unjustly detained for nearly four months 
without trial or any legal charges being brought against him. --
