The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation Statement on the Anniversary of the Unjust Detention of Majd Kamalmaz

WASHINGTON – Six years ago today American psychologist Majd Kamalmaz was unjustly detained in Syria. The Foley Foundation calls on the Assad regime to release Majd and all other Americans being unjustly held in Syria, and to permit them to return home to their families safely and swiftly. On this sad anniversary, our thoughts are also with the people of Syria as they recover from the devastation of the recent earthquake, which followed so many years of war and heartbreak. They, and Majd, deserve better.
