The UN and Syria


Security Council Meeting on the “Caesar” report concerning mass torture perpetrated by the Syrian regime (April 15, 2014)

This report contains 55,000 photos relating to 11,000 detainees who were tortured and killed between 2011 and 2013 in several detention centers belonging to the Syrian regime. It constitutes a set of documents which confirm, on an unprecedented scale and in a systematic and structured way, the practice of war crimes and crimes against humanity. It comes on top of multiple reports by the International Commission of Inquiry on the human rights situation in Syria established by the UN Human Rights Council.
