U.S. SEEKS POSSIBLE WAR CRIMES CHARGES IN SYRIA

United States is investigating possible war crimes charges against Syria according to a report by UPI on June 18, 2011.

An administration official told CNN the United States is “looking into … whether there are grounds here for charges related to war crimes.” The government is collecting information on Syrian security forces and will decide whether to make a referral to the International Criminal Court.

The official also said the American administration is considering putting further economic pressure on the Syrian government and is lobbying U.N. Security Council members to support a resolution on Syria, actions that would “send a strong message.”
