War-Crimes Prosecutor, Frustrated at U.N. Inaction, Quits Panel on Syria https://t.co/bdunzhvsz2— LiberalTexasDem (@LiberalTexasDem) August 7, 2017
BEIRUT, Lebanon — For six years, an independent United Nations-appointed panel has documented a litany of war atrocities in Syria that have grown increasingly brazen: torture of prisoners, attacks on hospitals, sexual slavery. On Sunday, the panel confirmed that one of its three members — Carla del Ponte, a Swiss prosecutor — had resigned. Speaking by phone from Ticino, Switzerland, late Sunday, Ms. del Ponte said she had hoped the Security Council would either refer the case in Syria to the International Criminal Court or set up a special tribunal. “I was expecting to persuade the Security Council to do something for justice,” she said. “Nothing happened for seven years. Now I resigned.”
