ICJ-OMCT joint oral intervention on the situation of human rights in Syria

During a second special session on the human rights situation in Syria, the ICJ and the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) addressed the Human Rights Council.

They welcomed the strong terms of the draft resolution before the Council and called for unanimous adoption of the resolution; they also called for action by all States in their capacity as members of the Security Council, or as States who might influence the Security Council, to urge the Security Council to refer the situation in Syria to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court.
