The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) renews its call for the immediate and unconditional release of the two abducted bishops, Bishop Youhanna Ibrahim Syro-Orthodox bishop, and Boulos Yazigi, Greek Orthodox Bishop of Aleppo. The two bishops were abducted in Aleppo, Syria on April of 2014. Since the time of their abduction very little information is available and efforts to negotiate their release were not productive. Clergy are servants of God who work to improve the lives of their congregants and should only be honored for their service.
AHRC calls upon the international community to spare no efforts to help release the two bishops and all others wrongfully held. AHRC joins the world’s human rights community in calling for peace in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and the restoration of order, unity and prosperity.
