UPMRC Update: Monday 19th May 2003

Further to our recent appeal, we are pleased to announce the release of Mr Nasaif Al Dik (Coordinator of Community Health Projects), Shadi Abu Bakr and Ahmed Badwan (Medical Relief Volunteers). All were arrested whilst in their homes along with Dr Mohammed Skafi (Head of Emergency Services and First Aid). Dr Skafi was released on the 7th of May.

We would like to thank the international community for their great efforts
in demanding the release of the medical personnel. They may now return to their essential humanitarian work.
