The prisons of the Syrian Asad regime (father and son)

I have been reading an unpublished manuscript, of a memoir by a key player in the Lebanese civil war.  There is in the book the experience of this man in Syrian jail and the graphic description of the torture techniques and squalid conditions of those prisons.  Those prisons were not in any way accidental to the Syrian regime repression but were an integral part of its apparatus of power and repression.
