Jassem Merhi al-Jassem, one of four brothers kidnapped in Lebanon a few months ago, has been killed in Syrian captivity, reported the daily An Nahar on Monday.

Nabil Halabi, head of the Lebanese Institute for Democracy and Human Rights, revealed that Jassem was kidnapped in Beirut and transported with his three brothers to Syria through a vehicle from the Syrian Embassy.

He stated that he was killed under torture in Syrian jail, adding that the issue is being studied to make a case out of it in order to indict all who kidnapped him before international courts.

“We will not remain silent over his death,” he stressed.

Jassem al-Jassem was abducted in Beirut in February after being accused of distributing flyers encouraging anti-regime protests in Syria.

He is the most active among his brothers in speaking out against the Syrian regime, said the daily.

The four of them were kidnapped shortly after being released from the Justice Palace in Baabda, it added..

Investigations by Lebanon’s Internal Security Forces revealed that vehicles from the Syrian Embassy in Beirut had been employed in their kidnapping.

as Lebanese, we need to stand for our values of freedom and liberty, no matter what side or party is trying to limit or deny us our freedom. We stood with the right of Aoun when he was denied appearance on TV in the 1990s and 2000s, we stood with the Lebanese Forces when they wanted to express the voice against tyranie, we stand with the Palestinian people against the aggressions of Israel, and against the occupation, we Stand with the Iraqi people, we stood with the Egyptian and Tunisian people.... and now we stand with the Syrian people, and most of all, we stand against all attempts to limit liberties and freedom in Lebanon

If this is true, the government should resign.
