UN Rights Body to Share Syria War Crimes Evidence
The U.N. Human Rights Council has voted overwhelmingly to share its evidence of Syrian atrocities in hopes it will be forwarded to the world's war crimes tribunal.
By a vote of 32-5, with 10 abstentions, the 47-nation council adopted the resolution Thursday strongly condemning lack of cooperation by President Bashar Assad's government with a U.N. commission investigating alleged rights violations since March 2011 in Syria, whether by the government or the opposition or the Islamic State group that controls broad areas along the Syria-Iraq border.
The resolution emphasizes that The Hague-based International Criminal Court can play an "important role" if the United Nations agrees to send it the commission's findings on war crimes and crimes against humanity allegedly being committed in Syria.
