Solida: a rectification

The president of Solida, Marie Daunay, has pointed out some errors in a previous blog entry on Solida. Especially the part about Solida being linked to the Opposition is not true because Solida is neutral and not linked to any political organization.

Also, my suggestion that Solida didn’t do much for Lebanese prisoners held in detention by Syria couldn’t be further from the truth: Solida has pointed out the miserable fate of those prisoners since October 1997 when it was still a taboo to talk about this topic. See here for more details.

Clearly, these were mistakes on my part and I hereby offer a sincere apology to Marie Daunay, the Solida organization and anyone else who was offended by the errors.
