The efforts of international judicial authorities to investigate and prosecute crimes, including war crimes, committed in Syria, are gradually reaching its goals, says a new report by Human Rights Watch.
Sweden and Germany are named as the the most successful in dealing with this situation. The two countries are praised for interacting with the refugees and asylum seekers.
However, the reports mentions that despite comprehensive legal frameworks and a sufficient number of qualified war crimes units, both Sweden and Germany face many difficulties, including the inability to reach the prosecuted person in Syria.
The majority of the cases that have already reached trial have implicated members of ISIS, Al-Nusra Front and other armed groups fighting against the Syrian government. Many of the accused were also charged with participating in terrorist activities.
