Syria: Prof. Aref Dalileh is Dying!

As Ammar reports,

Sources are reporting that Aref Dalilah’s health is failing quickly and that he is liable to collapse at any given moment. Prison doctors have reportedly recommended that he be subjected to a variety of tests and scans, but, so far, prison authorities have not responded to their demands.

Prof. Dalileh is one of the most well-reputed economics academics in the Middle East, he was a major idol in the Damascus-Spring movement in 2001, was arrested then by the Syrian authorities and he's serving a 10 years sentence in jail since then.
