BIOGRAPHY

Tariq Baiasi, a Syrian blogger who made his life from tech support in his hometown of Banyas, was arrested on July 7, 2007. His detention followed a comment he left in a forum, where he criticized the Syrian security forces. Baiasi was arrested at Banyas and has, since then, never been heard of. During his time in prison, no trial was held against Baiasi ((Global Voices Online » Free Tariq Campaign)).

When Tariq Baiasi was held in prison for more than six month, Syrian bloggers again started to write about him, while his detention had not been discussed that much before. On the beginning of February 2008, they started the Free Tariq Campaign ((Free Tariq)) to support their fellow blogger and raise awareness for his case ((Global Voices Advocacy » Syrian bloggers campaign to free fellow blogger Tariq Biasi)), copying campaigns like Free Kareem ((Free Kareem)) in the hope of similar success.
