If It Doesn’t Start With “G” And End With “Mo,” You’re Out Of Luck

[Globe and Mail] Six years after the Maher Arar affair began to cast a spotlight on Syria’s detentions of Arab Canadians, a citizen remains secretly jailed in the police state.

Bahaeddine Succarie, a 41-year-old Canadian of Lebanese descent, has been jailed in Syria since April, 2007. He was picked up in Damascus, which he had frequently visited since returning to Tripoli, Lebanon, in the early 1990s.

His imprisonment has received no public attention. However, his sister contacted The Globe and Mail this month to express frustration with Canadian diplomats involved in the case.
