Prof. Fionnuala Ní Aoláin Interviewed on SBS News About Syrian Prisons Holding Australians 

Professor Fionnuala Ní Aoláin was interviewed on Australia’s SBS News about Syrian prisons currently holding Australians. As U.N. Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism, Ní Aoláin visited northeastern Syria in July 2023 to inspect the Kurdish-run prisons and camps holding tens of thousands of foreign I-S suspects and their families, including at least 55 Australians. Her visit was billed as the first time an independent human rights expert had been given this access.
