Turkey - SMART

On Monday, the Syrian non-governmental organization Najoon said that the arrest warrants issued by French prosecutors against Syrian government officials could withdraw the officials from the political settlement process in Syria.

The Najoon Organization fights failure of justice cases, including so-called errors of impunity, in media and other platforms. Artists, writers, academics, intellectuals, and lawyers formed Najoon.

On Monday, French prosecutors issued international arrest warrants for three senior intelligence and government officials, including the Chief of Security Ali Mamlouk, for alleged collusion in war crimes, including torture and enforced disappearance.

Humam Haddad, a member of Najoon, said that based on ongoing developments, the Syrian government may sacrifice its Syrian intelligence and government officials to maintain legitimacy during the political settlement process.

Haddad also insinuated that the Syrian government "disappeared" the persons accused of assassinating the former Lebanese prime minister, Rafic Hariri, saying that the Syrian government may follow a similar procedure with the recently accused officials.

Haddad added that the officials cannot be arrested unless they leave Syria.

Haddad estimated that Germany will be the second country to issue arrest warrants for the officials and that other European countries will follow.

Earlier, a Canadian investigator gathered about one million documents signed by the Syrian government President Bashar al-Assad. The documents would provide enough evidence to convict him of multiple war crimes in Syria.
