Syria denies allegations of systematic detainee torture, killings

Syria's Justice Ministry on Wednesday categorically denied allegations published in a new investigation, and first reported two days ago by CNN's Amanpour, accusing the regime of torturing and killing thousands of detainees in government custody.

The government called the report "politicized and lacking in objectivity and professionalism," according to a statement on the sate news agency SANA.

The report was authored by a team of renowned international legal and forensic experts, based on thousands of photographs provided by a Syrian defector who claimed to have worked as a photographer at a military hospital that received dead bodies from detention centers.

    Why not bring Bush and Tony blair to International Court of Justice for war crimes , especially for 100000 + dead in Iraq for false WMD ?
    No the nordic/european ppl / rich countries cannot do wrong , its their right to plunder other countries either by piracy, colonism , False pretexts, war , invasion, terrorism , lies & deceit .
    Its about time , all countries should leave UN , the United Nordic organisation and create another fair international organisation having equal rights. UN is only a parrot of America.
