End Unlawful Detention In the news

Foreign Office warned that disabled mother in Syrian camp may die without medical treatment

The Sunday Times reports on the failure of the Foreign Office to evacuate a dangerously ill British woman from a detention camp in northeast Syria, where a leading neurologist says she will die without treatment.

“Her condition has become critical and a local doctor told her that without urgent surgery, she will die,” our Director Maya Foa said in a letter to Foreign Secretary James Cleverly. “She requires immediate medical assistance that cannot be provided in northeast Syria.”
