Dutch has filed a case against Damascus against severe human rights violations.

The case will eventually end up in the UN court. The Dutch government said it was invoking the UN Convention against Torture. Moreover, Damascus was also guilty of murder and using poison gas on its citizens. “The Assad regime has committed horrific crimes time after time. The evidence is overwhelming. There must be consequences,” Foreign Minister Stef Blok.

The Dutch said they decided to take action after an attempt to refer the situation in Syria to the International Criminal Court following years of impunity, was vetoed in the UN Security Council. They also demanded justice for the victims and accountability of authorities.

Netherlands gave an official notice to Damascus to cease further HR violations. Syria signed the UN Convention against Torture in 2004. The London-based lawyers Guernica 37 Chambers said they were helping the Dutch government collect evidence and testimony from Syrian victims.
