Ghiath Zuhair M'admmani

The Syrian Network for Human Rights has notified the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions of the case of the media activist, Ghiath Zuhair M’admmani, from Daraya city in the west of Damascus Suburbs governorate, born in 1987, who was arrested on August 20, 2014, by Syrian Regime forces while he was passing through one of their checkpoints as he was trying to leave Daraya city. On January 1, 2019, his family received his death certificate following a visit to the civil registry department in Damascus city. According to the death certificate, he died on May 4, 2015.
As is the norm in all such cases, Syrian authorities have not confessed to killing Ghiath, and registered his death at the civil register without the knowledge of his family, who have been unable to submit any complaint about his death for fear of being persecuted by the regime security services for doing so.
