Homs - SMART

The Syrian government compelled previously dismissed employees to obtain security approvals before returning to their jobs, despite the employees' signing of the reconciliation agreement reached in Northern Homs, Central Syria.

Abu Mahmoud, a previously dismissed employee, reported that he used to work in a cement factory in the city of Homs, and that he was dismissed after the loyalist forces detained him for a year and a half on grounds of name similarity.

Abu Mahmoud said, "After my release, I signed a reconciliation agreement with the Syrian government and then reported to the factory to resume my work, but the factory administration requested a proof of innocence from me (…) I went to the prison in Damascus to obtain the certificate, but the prison administration said that to obtain this document I would need a security approval, and that they would inform me once they have it."

The employee Abu Ahmad was also dismissed after being detained. Abu Ahmad reported to his employer in the city of Hama, but received the same answer from the employer and the prison administration.

A dismissed teacher, Abu Abdo, said that he was dismissed four years earlier because he did not respond to a summoning by the directorate of education, fearing that he would be arrested. After signing a reconciliation agreement, Abu Abdo reported to the directorate of education to return to his job, but the directorate informed him that he had to check with the Political Security Service.

Abu Abdo added, "I went to the Political Security Service branch in Hama. During an interrogation, they asked me about my relations with the people who carried arms against the Syrian government. They told me to revisit them after some time to obtain the approval in order for me to get my job back."

The employee Abu Usama said that he signed a reconciliation agreement with the Syrian government and reported to the electricity company in Homs he used to work at, but the company told him to check with the Political Security Service. Fear prevented Abu Usama from going to the Political Security because he did not have a "do not arrest" document, according to him.

Last May, the Syrian government forces announced seizing all of Northern Homs and Southern Hama, after military and civil parties concluded an agreement with Russia and representatives of the Syrian government. The agreement included a ceasefire, the deportation of those who refused to sign the reconciliations, and the return of students and employees to their posts after they adjust to their situation.
