أوقفو الحجز التعسفي للاجئة العراقية يسرى العامري STOP THE ARBITRARY DETENTION OF THE IRAQI REFUGEE YUSRA ALAMIRIPosted by Farfahinne at 10:51 PM
An Iraqi refugee woman needs your help!
Her names is Yousra Al-Amiri and she has been detained since May 2009 in Lebanon. The General Security is refusing to release her although the judge ordered her release since 11/12/2009 and they are considering transferring her to Caritas shelter for trafficked woman.
This is a flagrant violation of refugee rights and of the independence of the judiciary! Detaining a person without legal grounds is a crime and Caritas shelter is not supposed to be a prison!
You can read the full details on her case in this article (in Arabic) published by Al-Akhbar today http://www.al-akhbar.com/ar/node/173323
Yousra needs your support!
Here is what you can do:
1. Contact the Ministry of Interior and request Yousra's release!
2. Contact Caritas Lebanese Migrants Center and express your refusal that the shelter becomes a prison!
3. Contact your Members of Parliament and request that they render all security forces accountable for such violations of personal freedoms!
4. Send this message to all your contacts!
