Netherlands prepares case against Syria’s Assad

The Netherlands is preparing a case against Syria at the UN’s highest court, seeking to hold the Syrian regime leader Bashar al Assad accountable for human rights violations, including torture and the use of chemical weapons, the Dutch foreign minister has told the country’s parliament.

Syria has been informed of the legal step, which precedes a possible case at the International Court of Justice, the UN’s court for disputes between states in The Hague.
