8 September 2011 by Steven Kay

Syria: Is Now the Right Time for Bashar al-Assad to Face Justice?

8 August 2011 by Administrator

The use of lethal force to disperse demonstrations is within a government’s prerogative and is not an international crime. But months of a persistent and brutal crackdown, the likes of which are occurring in Syria, which, according to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has left some 2,000 people dead since anti-government protests began in March, does amount to a crime against humanity.
