Khiyanat El Loughat Wa Al Samt (2011)

The book was banned because it speaks negatively of the Syrian regime.

Syrian poet and journalist Faraj Ahmad Bayrakdar was arrested on 31 March 1987 by the Military Intelligence on suspicion of membership of the Party for Communist Action. He was arrested without trial until 1993 when he was sentenced to fifteen years’ hard labour for belonging to an unauthorized political association. He was eventually released in 2000 after an international campaign.
