A local rights group stressed that pillars of the Assad regime must face accountability for the war crimes they are committing in Syria and not to be allowed to escape punishment. The group highlighted the names of more than 70 senior Assad regime officials, including Bashar al-Assad, his brother Maher, Ali Mamluk and Jamil al-Hassan.
With Justice, a local rights group, launched a campaign under the title “No Legitimacy for Criminals” to demand accountability for war criminals and perpetrators of human rights violations in Syria and to prevent the rehabilitation of the Assad regime and its pillars. It noted that the Assad regime is responsible for the overwhelming majority of crimes taking place in Syria, citing reports by international human rights organizations.
The rights group seeks accountability for war criminals and key human rights violators in communities that have been plagued by civil wars and natural disasters as well as those that have just emerged from them. It particularly focuses on the Middle Eastern countries, especially Syria.
The rights group went on to say that it was willing to cooperate with other relevant legal organizations and rights groups in order to raise their voice against impunity. It emphasized the need for accountability by addressing the public opinion and decision-makers in the region and the free world in order to prevent perpetrators escape punishment and cover up their crimes.
In October, the With Justice rights group launched a campaign under the title “The Black List” to shed light on war criminals in Syria. The campaign involved the publishing of information about the criminals and information about the crimes they have committed or oversaw. The information also included the list of international sanctions imposed on those officials.
The rights group is publishing the information in Arabic and English. The past few days were focused on Bashar al-Assad, Maher al-Assad, Zuhair al-Assad, Fahd Jassem al-Furaij, Ali Abdullah Ayoub, Ali Mamluk, Jamil Hassan, Muhammad Deeb Zeitoun, Abdulfatah Qudsiyah, Talal Makhlouf, Gamal Younis and others.
The campaign seeks to shed light on more than 70 Assad regime security and political figures involved in violations against the Syrian people in preparation for accountability and to ensure that they do not escape punishment. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
