pushes for an international commission of inquiry on Syria
The appointment on the 12th of September in Geneva by
the President of the Human Rights Council of the members of
the international commission of inquiry tasked with investigating
the crimes committed in Syria is a milestone with respect to
the international community’s condemnation of the crimes being
committed on a daily basis by the Syrian regime.
The High Commissioner for Human Rights expressed the view that the crimes committed in Syria may constitute crimes against humanity. This commission of inquiry, headed by Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro, a universally recognized UN human rights figure, will allow us to conduct investigations to identify those responsible for these crimes. They will be held accountable for their acts.
The appointment of three respected international experts follows the decision taken by the Human Rights Council on August 22, 2011, to establish an international commission of inquiry.
