Top Syrian activists remain jailed despite amnesty

A handout picture released by the official Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) shows some inmates being readied for release from the Damascus Central Prison on June 11, 2014Prominent activists accused of “terrorism” by Syrian authorities remain in jail despite the announcement of a wide-ranging amnesty two days ago, a rights lawyer told AFP on Wednesday. “We are waiting for the releases, but none of the prominent activists has yet been set free. There is no transparency in this amnesty process,” said human rights lawyer Michel Shammas. SANA did not specify when the prisoners were released, but described them as “a first batch” of people released under the amnesty decree.
