The Syrian regime on Saturday criticized the decision of the Netherlands to hold Syria liable for the human rights violations in the country. According to Syria, the Netherlands would like to serve the agenda of the United States.
The Syrian regime contrasts with the state news agency You that the Netherlands has no right to speak in the field of human rights violations, because the Netherlands is said to have supported ‘terrorists’ in Syria.
The Netherlands is also accused of abusing international law. The Netherlands may submit the case to the International Court of Justice, which is located in The Hague.
On Friday, Minister Stef Blok (Foreign Affairs) announced that he would hold Syria liable for the human rights violations in the country. “The Al Assad regime has been guilty of terrible crimes time and again,” Blok said. “The evidence is abundantly clear. This cannot be without consequences.”
In recent years, reports have been drawn up by several organizations on civilians who are being tortured, attacked with poison gas and murdered under the rule of President Bashar Al Assad on a large scale. More than 200,000 Syrians have died since the war in the country.
