Senior Syrian regime officers responsible for crimes against humanity
The Syrian Human Rights Committee calls on the governments across the world to arrest and prosecute those involved in crimes against humanity in Syria on their soil, including security officers and elements, shabiha, and economic supporters of the Syrian regime, and also calls on Syrian citizens and human rights organisations to give information and evidence against all those involved in these crimes, including members, officers, and the regime’s shabiha in addition to its Supporters from Iranian militias, Hezbollah, SDF, ISIS, and Al-Qaeda …
It is worth noting that many of those involved in violations left Syria to Europe and other parts of the world when the waves of Syrian refugees fled in the middle of the past decade seeking safety and fled the attacks of the regime and its supporters Russia and Iran, and presented themselves to the authorities as fleeing violence and the regime’s injustice.
The Syrian Human Rights Committee stresses that those involved must not escape impunity or justice in countries that are held accountable for human rights violations, especially as some of them have participated in killing, torturing, arresting and mistreating civilians.
SHRC also calls on the International Criminal Court to move the cases against it, against the main figures of the Syrian regime and its intelligence officers responsible for crimes against humanity, against hundreds of thousands of victims, detainees, forced disappeared and millions of displaced persons.
The German judiciary took a step, the first of its kind in Europe, to arrest two former Syrian intelligence officers and bring them to trial, both of whom have been proven involved in crimes against humanity, namely, Anwar Raslan (57 years) and Iyad Al-Gharib (42 years). There are many people in Europe and other countries who provide the Syrian regime with economic support and help it to commit crimes, in addition to numerous former officers and security personnel involved in crimes against humanity at large, and despite the many theoretical measures announced by many countries of the world, but only shy steps have been taken in this connection.
