Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, said the perpetrators of crimes in Syria should know they are being identified and their dossiers are compiled for future prosecutions, according to Reuter.
“Once again, I must emphasize that what we are seeing, in eastern Ghouta and elsewhere in Syria, are likely war crimes, and potentially crimes against humanity. Civilians are being pounded into submission or death.”
Zeid repeated his call for the situation in Syria to be referred to the International Criminal Court, adding:“Attempts to thwart justice and shield these criminals are disgraceful.”
