The truth of the political arrests in Muscat

We’re informing you that a number of our comrades in the military leadership have been arrested.  We are issuing an ultimatum to speed their release.

There have been multiple arrests by the British Intelligence Service in Muscat, Nazwa, Masrah and other cities, as well as in Jabal Akhdar.

This was the result of treason.  The Intelligence Service was able to arrest leading comrades in the Secret Military Bureau.  So far, None has admitted to being members of the Bureau, but instead admitted to being sympathizers of our Front, which was agreed on prior [to the arrest].

We are putting forward this information in order to avoid confusion.

The arrested members of the Military Bureau are the following:

Ahmad Hmaidan                                      Died due to torture
Ahmad Al-Rubii                                      Nasir Mansour
Yehia Al-Ghassani                                      Muhammed Ahmad Al- Battashi
Suleiman Seif                                      Suleiman Sayid Al-Hilali
Masoud Hamad Al-Salimi                                      Ibrahim Al-Iyari
Ali Suleiman Abdul-Karim
Rashid Abdulla SalimSalim Ahmad Nasir Naasir –
