Hello @RusEmbUSA - Representative of the "cryptic" organisation #CIJA here as you can see in my profile. Glad to see you following coverage of the mounting evidence against the #SyrianRegime atrocities against its own people. @JomanaCNN @ABarnardNYT
The "extensive archive of documents" amounts to 800,000 original hard copies spanning years of Syrian military and intelligence operations to suppress, detain and torture untold thousands of men women and children. #Justice4Syria
You will remember from the good old days of #ICTY trials of our mutual "friends" #Mladic and #Karadzic that documents are the king and queen of evidence. Unshakable in the courtroom and impossible to fake en masse
