Muhammed Radwan Arrested
My cousin Muhammed Radwan @battutta has been arrested by the brutal Syrian regime. They claim that he has been receiving money in exchange for sending photos and videos from Syria. They also accuse him of being connected to Israel and of being in contact with a Columbian who took the photos and videos from him for 100 LE! These are all blatant lies. Mohammed is an engineer who has lived in Damascus for about a year and has never been to Israel. He was in contact with a Columbian journalist who works for a radio - therefore they do not need photos. The Syrian regime is just like all the other authoritarian regimes in the Middle East that fabricate stories and arrest innocent people just to cling on to power. To hell with Bashar el-Asad and his bloody regime.
