I just received this document, which is supposedly a letter from the head of political security to the attorney general in Damascus. The letter is asking that the list of detainees (all from Deraa) have actions taken against them due to ” organizing demonstrations, chanting slogans and banners depicting the symbols of the nation.” Note the ages of the detained; many are under 18, with the youngest being in 1996.

I don’t have to the expertise to verify the authenticity these documents, but as of now I have no reason to believe it is fake. Let me know if you can authenticate or refute the document. If they are authentic, it is further proof that the Syrians are holding underage detainees.

The original document is followed by the English translation:
