Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin on his Twitter page commented on the idea of a group of American senators have proposed to create a “hybrid Tribunal” in Syria.
“Paranoia exclusivity leads not only to impunity, but also to the manic desire of all to teach, to judge and to punish,” he wrote on Saturday, April 8.
Earlier it became known that a group of senators have proposed upper house of Congress to study the bill providing for the establishment in the United States a “hybrid Tribunal” in Syria.
It is expected that it will include local and international lawyers, judges and other professionals who will be engaged in the prosecution of individuals suspected of committing war crimes, crimes against humanity, or genocide. In the case of creation, the Tribunal, in particular, will consider “war crimes (…) the regime of Bashar al-Assad.”
The bill was introduced after the US President Donald trump on the night of 7 April attacked the airfield shirt, which is still used by Syrian government troops. The shelling began after the Syrian opposition that is loyal to Assad’s forces allegedly used chemical weapons in Idlib province. Victims of the attack were dozens of people. Damascus his involvement in the incident denies.
