A prisoner swap took place on the outskirts of Hama, Syria, near the border of Idlib on Tuesday in which 45 pro-government prisoners made up of women and children were exchanged for 55 women including children that oppose the government.
Jneid said that some of the women were sentenced to life, without a proper trial.
Sharbaji was arrested when she went to get a passport, as a way to put pressure on her husband who was active during the 2011 revolution.
In 2016, US Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power named Sharbaji was one of the 20 women who are political prisoners in the ‘Free the 20’ campaign.
