The wife of prominent Syrian activist and journalist Mazen Darwish, detained by authorities since February 2012, on Sunday appealed for his release as a "goodwill gesture" amid peace talks in Switzerland.Darwish was set to appear before a Damascus court on Monday on "terror" charges along with his colleagues Hussein Ghreir and Hani Zaitani.Darwish and 13 other staff members -- including his wife -- were arrested on February 16, 2012, when air force intelligence agents raided the SMC's office in Damascus.Most of the others have since been freed, but Darwish, Ghreir and Zaitani were accused of "terror" charges.
