Hadeel Kouki is a young Syrian activist who was detained and tortured by Bashar al-Assad’s regime for demanding her basic human rights. At the most recent session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, she spoke on behalf of Freedom House about her treatment by the regime and called on the Human Rights Council to take action to stop ongoing atrocities committed by the Syrian regime against its people.

Freedom House will release Worst of the Worst: The World's Most Repressive Societies, its annual report naming the world's worst human rights abusers, on the sidelines of the UN Human Rights Council's 10th session in Geneva. The press conference on Monday, March 9 will feature human rights advocates from two of the countries profiled in the report, Zimbabwe and Cuba.
