> Your Excellency [here you can add the name of the ambassador, if it is
> known to you],
>
> I am writing this letter to express my deepest concern regarding the
> situation of Amina Abdullah Arraf, a Syrian blogger who has been kidnapped
> in Damascus on June 6th. Since then, her family was not informed about her
> whereabouts, the charges against her or her medical condition.
>
> The Syrian regime must immediately and unconditionally release Amina Arraf
> if, as appears to be the case, she is held solely for the peaceful exercise
> of her freedom of expression, association and assembly.
>
> I am deeply concerned that Amina Arraf may have been subjected to enforced
> disappearance. I urge the Syrian authorities to disclose her whereabouts
> immediately. I call on the Syrian authorities to ensure that Amina Arraf is
> protected from torture and any other ill-treatment. She must be granted
> immediate and regular access to her family, lawyers and adequate medical
> care.

> Yours truly,
> [Your name]
