Belela Herrera, a former Uruguayan deputy foreign minister now working as a human rights activist, said the reaction to Dhiab’s disappearance was “crazy”. She told Associated Press news agency that no case had ever been brought against him and it was wrong to link him to terrorism.
“He has a valid identity card, issued by the Uruguayan government, that allows him to go to other countries. He is not a fugitive from justice,” she said.
Well if a “human rights activist” says that the Syrian, who somehow, innocently found himself in Afghanistan in the company of Al Qaeda poses no threat, that’s good enough for me. Rio, here I come.
