Qatar has affirmed that serious violations of human rights and crimes committed against the Syrian people for nine years, both by the Syrian regime and its allies or by terrorist groups, are increasing and escalating in light of full impunity, both nationally and internationally.

This came in a statement by HE the Permanent Representative of Qatar to the United Nations ambassador Ali Khalfan al-Mansouri during the 40th session of the Human Rights Council on the issue 'Bridging the Gap between Human Rights Investigations and Reports and Criminal Accountability of Basic Crimes, an Example of United Nations Cooperation in the Context of the Syrian Arab Republic."

He said that in view of the inability or unwillingness of the national judicial system in Syria to assume its legal responsibilities, prosecute and hold those responsible for these violations and heinous crimes, and the failure of the international community to refer the Syrian file to the International Criminal Court (ICC), Qatar has supported all efforts aimed to promote accountability in Syria, pointing out that the Principality of Liechtenstein and Qatar submitted a resolution to the UN General Assembly to establish an independent and impartial mechanism to assist in the investigation and prosecution of those responsible for crimes against humanity in Syria.
