The Syrian Human Rights Committee’s message to the Arab League
Does the Arab League know that Bashar al-Assad did not exercise his authority as head of state or president of all Syrians, but rather used methods of exclusion, imprisonment and killing from the first day he inherited power from his father, Hafez al-Assad?
After the outbreak of the peaceful uprising demanding freedom, dignity and justice, he practiced a policy of open war and class, sectarian and societal discrimination, committed many massacres against humanity, worked on demographic change, dropped barrel bombs on innocent civilians, used chemical weapons many times, displaced half of the Syrian people, killed hundreds of thousands, and arrested and imprisoned hundreds of thousands more. He destryed homes and infrastructure, disabled millions, and issued unfair laws to seize citizens’ properties…
The appropriate place for Bashar al-Assad is the International Criminal Court or a Syrian national court toprosecute him for crimes of war and crimes against humanity, and that rights will not die by passage of time, and the day will come when he will be tried for his crimes.
