"Syria's holocaust": The British media totally lose the plot

by Cem Ertür Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014 at 6:06 AM
cem.ertur@gmail.com

At no time in history has the perversion of the truth been so extreme. Once the NATO-led genocide on the people of Syria comes to an end, The Guardian and the entire British media establishment must be tried for crimes against humanity.



The Scotsman, 22 January 2014  


Assad’s mass killings are Syria’s ‘holocaust’

The systematic torture and killing of 11,000 detainees in Syria has been compared to the holocaust by a Scottish scientist who
co-authored a report claiming the Assad regime is guilty of war crimes.









The Guardian, 22 January 2014


Systematic killing evidence in Syria just tip of iceberg - aid agencies

International bodies say evidence of execution of 11,000 detainees in regime jails comes from just one area of Syria.









The Guardian, 21 January 2014


Syrian regime document trove shows evidence of 'industrial scale' killing of detainees

Senior war crimes prosecutors say photographs and documents provide 'clear evidence' of systematic killing of 11,000 detainees









The Independent, 17 January 2014


Innocent, starving, close to death: One victim of the siege that shames Syria

Months of encirclement by the Syrian army has cut off the 18,000 people in Damascus's Yarmouk refugee camp from supplies and
medical aid, reducing them to subsisting on a diet of animal food, water with salt and instant noodles and leaves.









Daily Mirror, 8 January 2014


Baby recovered from rubble as Syrian tyrant Bashar Assad bombs his own people

Terrified children were among the victims today as Syrian tyrant Bashar Assad unleashed a new wave of terror from the skies.









The Independent, 18 December 2013


British prisoner Dr Abbas Khan found dead in Syrian jail days before he was due to be handed over to MP George Galloway

Family deny Syrian security authorities' claims that he committed suicide and demand an explanation.

excerpt from:  Syrian regime document trove shows evidence of 'industrial scale' killing of detainees

Senior war crimes prosecutors say photographs and documents provide 'clear evidence' of systematic killing of 11,000 detainees

by Ian Black, The Guardian, 21 January 2014



Read the Syria report in full




Syrian government officials could face war crimes charges in the light of a huge cache of evidence smuggled out of the country showing the "systematic killing" of about 11,000 detainees, according to three eminent international lawyers.

The three, former prosecutors at the criminal tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Sierra Leone, examined thousands of Syrian government photographs and files recording deaths in the custody of regime security forces from March 2011 to last August.

Most of the victims were young men and many corpses were emaciated, bloodstained and bore signs of torture. Some had no eyes; others showed signs of strangulation or electrocution.

The UN and independent human rights groups have documented abuses by both Bashar al-Assad's government and rebels, but experts say this evidence is more detailed and on a far larger scale than anything else that has yet emerged from the 34-month crisis.

The three lawyers interviewed the source, a military policeman who worked secretly with a Syrian opposition group and later defected and fled the country. In three sessions in the last 10 days they found him credible and truthful and his account "most compelling".

They put all evidence under rigorous scrutiny, says their report, which has been obtained by the Guardian and CNN.

The authors are Sir Desmond de Silva QC, former chief prosecutor of the special court for Sierra Leone, Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, the former lead prosecutor of former Yugoslavian president Slobodan Milosevic, and Professor David Crane, who indicted President Charles Taylor of Liberia at the Sierra Leone court.
