Syria trial reports

A trial against a former brigadier-general in the Syrian army is taking place in Sweden. The brigadier-general is charged with aiding and abetting war crimes through indiscriminate attacks against civilians and civilian property.

The brigadier-general is the most high-ranking military official from Syria to be put on trial accused of core international crimes in a European court. 

We will monitor the trial from the courtroom throughout the entirety of the trial and will publish weekly reports from the trial in English. These will also be translated into Arabic.
