UN says Syrian leaders should face justice at ICC for murder and torture. (But not Dick or W?)Submitted by go213mph on Mon, 02/18/2013 - 16:22
What a world. The Hypocrisy in this article is mind numbing.
Syrian leaders should be brought before the International Criminal Court (ICC) to face justice for murder and torture, UN investigators urged on Monday as the EU renewed its blanket arms embargo on both sides in Syria's bloody conflict.
"Of course we were able to identify high-level perpetrators," said del Ponte, who brought the former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic to the ICC on war crimes charges. These were people "in command responsibility...deciding, organizing, planning and aiding and abetting the commission of crimes,"
"Government forces and affiliated militias have committed extra-judicial executions, breaching international human rights law. This conduct also constitutes the war crime of murder. Where murder was committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack against a civilian population, with knowledge of that attack, it is a crime against humanity," it said, adding that those forces have targeted bakery queues and funeral processions to spread "terror" among civilians.
