President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition, Salem Al-Meslet, sent a letter to the Executive Director of Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Marghoob Saleem Butt, regarding the Assad regime’s ongoing violations against Syrian civilians.
Al-Meslet said that over the past ten years, the Syrian people have suffered horrific catastrophes in terms of indescribable human rights violations. He stressed that despite the many tragedies, the Syrian people insist on achieving justice and accountability.
Al-Meslet affirmed his confidence in the Commission’s primary role in supporting the SOC’s efforts to regain the legitimate rights of the Syrian people and their struggle for freedom, dignity and justice.
Moreover, Al-Meslet pointed out that the Assad regime continues to use chemical weapons in its war against civilians, adding that the regime still detains tens of thousands of people, as well as thousands who were tortured or killed while in illegal detention.
Al-Meslet attached a brief report on the chemical attacks that took place in Syria between 2012 and 2018, in addition to an overview on the mechanisms that the United Nations use to identify the perpetrators. He demanded that these issues be raised at the upcoming meeting of the Commission.
