Syrian Suicide Attempt

Syrian Suicide Attempt

January 12
19:12 2013

Hussein Hmdoum escaped the civil war in Syria and ended up living here in the TRNC. He managed to find employment as a construction worker in the south.

However, on learning that his father and two sisters had been killed, he jumped off a high building he was working on in an attempted suicide. He survived with a broken leg.

He then learnt that his wife and two children had escaped from Syria to Turkey. His attempt to be re-united with them was foiled when police arrested him at Ercan Airport for illegally entering and exiting the TRNC via a militarised zone.

The judge did express some sympathy in this case.
