Michel Kilo trial delayed

February 20th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

The trial of Michel Kilo (referred to interestingly by AP as a ‘militant’) has been delayed again.

The Criminal Court postponed the trial because two of his co-defendants failed to turn up.

Dissident writer Michel Kilo was one of 11 people arrested when they called on the Syrian Government to change its attitude towards Lebanon. Seven were released. Kilo was ordered to be released, but then new charges were brought at the last minute.

It’s thought Kilo is caught in a tug of war between reformist elements and hardliners in the Syrian government.
