Syria – Arrest of filmmaker Mohamed Malas (March 5, 2014)

France condemns the Syrian regime’s arrest of internationally renowned filmmaker Mohamed Malas, as he was preparing to travel to Geneva to participate in the International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights.

We call for his immediate release.

This arrest, which follows thousands of other arrests, is a further illustration of the regime’s disregard for human rights, as well as for the freedom of expression and artistic creation.
