Turkey - SMART

Amnesty International said that the arrest warrants issued by the French judiciary against Syrian officials are an essential step towards justice for the countless victims.

The French judiciary has issued international arrest warrants for three senior officials of the Syrian regime's intelligence services, including the National Security Office director, Ali Mamlouk, who is in charge of most of the Syrian government's security services.

On Monday, Amnesty International’s Senior Director for Research, Anna Neistat, said, "These arrest warrants for three senior officials, including a top adviser to President Bashar al-Assad, are an important step towards delivering justice for the countless victims of gross human rights violations carried out by the Syrian government."

Neistat added, "With war crimes and crimes against humanity continuing to go unpunished in Syria, it is vital that all states cooperate to ensure justice for victims."

Neistat called on the international community to follow France’s lead by taking steps, to end impunity in the Syrian conflict and hold all parties to account.

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.

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.
