Germany: Trial of suspected former Syrian security officers resumes in Koblenz

The trial of two suspected Syrian intelligence officials accused of committing crimes against humanity and other charges continued in Koblenz on Wednesday. On July 2, the First Criminal Senate — State Protection Senate — of the Higher Regional Court in Koblenz approved the charges brought by the Attorney General against 57-year-old Anwar R. and 43-year-old Eyad A. and opened the main proceedings. The indictment of the two officers accuses Anwar R. of being responsible for the torture, rape and serious sexual assault of at least 4,000 people in a high-ranking prison in Damascus, with at least 58 prisoners dying as a result. Eyad A. is accused of having brought at least 30 demonstrators to the torture prison.
