The Genocide Network

National jurisprudence

The Genocide Network Secretariat, in its effort to raise awareness on accountability, gathered and translated case work and respective judgements concerning the prosecution by national jurisdiction of EU Members States of core international crimes committed in Syria. By fighting impunity for crimes perpetrated in Syria, EU member States reiterate their commitment to ensuring that the European Union will not be a safe haven for perpetrators of grave international crimes, and that perpetrators will be brought to justice. Those cases are available for download in English.

Please note that the translation has been provided as a courtesy of the Genocide Network Secretariat and Eurojust and is not the official translation of the cases. The judgements are publicly available in their respective jurisdiction and have been anonymised by the Network Secretariat.
