Hussein Abbas is a Syrian activist who came to Jordan as a refugee on 14 June 2011.
Hussein is wanted dead or alive by the Syrian regime.
He was arrested by Jordanian security services on 10 January 2012 when he was delivering medical supplies to Syria.
Jordanian authorities intend to forcibly deport him to Syria on Tuesday, 24 January 2012.
Hussein Abbas has been registered at the Jordan office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees as an asylum seeker, and he should be protected by them against any forcible return into Syria.
We appeal to the Jordanian authorities to respect the international agreement for UNHCR.
