Violence against womenIn the context of documenting the crimes committed in Syria through interviewing some of the people who experienced the brutality and torture inside the Syrian regime’s prisons,Fadel Abdul Ghani, head of SNHR, interviewed in April, 2013 a victim of sexual abuse who was prisoned in one of the Syrian regime’s detention centers. We are publishing this story in particular for the important details it includes as it provides a comprehensive overview of the treatment of women prisoners inside the detention centers which consists mostly of torture, humiliation, and in some cases sexual abuse.

Please know that we changed the victim’s name to Amal (Hope) in order to preserve her social and security status.Amal was engaged at the time of the interview. Her fiance insisted on keeping her despite everything happened to her inside the prison, however; he was killed by the Syrian regime’s forces before he was able to leave Syria to meet Amal.
