For JusticeInfo I provided some legal and diplomatic context on the decision of the Dutch government to hold the Syrian state accountable for torture.
On 18 September, the Dutch government announced it would hold Syria accountable for torture and other human rights abuses. The Netherlands are willing to take the regime of president Bashar al-Assad to the International Court of Justice.
This is a significant development, both legally and politically.
I was quoted in an analysis of the online magazine JusticeInfo on the diplomatic and legal aspects of the decision.
