Syrian Detainees: Torture is barbaric and systematic – The torture cells of Syria are places where “nobody hears your voice, nobody visits you”
“There are four security agencies in Syria, and each does all it can to prove it is more brutal than the other one.”
An interrogator at one of Damascus: “We torture people because we are sadists. We enjoy torturing people.”
Former detainee from a church-based human rights group say: “The 3 “rapist officers” they are like animals. I tried to protect myself but I’m just a short guy… when they were raping me, I start to say: ‘Please don’t do that, please don’t do that.'” As he was being raped, he says his attackers mocked him. “You want Assad to quit? This is for saying that you don’t like Bashar al-Assad.”
A teenage boy was brought into the cell. He, too, was raped. As the assault went on, the boy cried out for his mother.
A woman was arrested at a checkpoint in Homs late last year.
“He inserted a rat in her vagina. She was screaming. Afterwards we saw blood on the floor. He told her: ‘Is this good enough for you?’ They were mocking her. It was obvious she was in agony. We could see her. After that she no longer moved.”
