Dear Sir /Madame,
We write to you on behalf of the Arab Organization For the Defenseof Expression & Press Freedom-AODEPF and its general secretary Nizar Nayouf . On
26.08.2003 Syrian writer,journalist and publisher Ahmad Sleiman (descendant from
a Turkish origin)Arived in the city of DUSSELDOORF (Germany) in which he asked
for political asylum . 3 days later, he was transferred to TRIER for
investigation by the domestic authorities concerning such as cases, then to
FRANKENTHAL . Since that date he is staying in a camp , waiting for the final
decision about his situation. Unfortunately the German authorities’ action with
him was not fit, although his position of health is very bad . He told AODEPF
that “ the social worker responsible for him told him that he has no right of
hospitalization unless he gets a job “. However, they have rejected to retain a
lawyer for him. So he was compelled to do that at his own expense ,
who is Hans GEORGVEIT (Tel :0049-65140203 ;Fax :0049-6514359 A
