Syria: Witnesses for the Prosecution

Joulie, Olivier
For five years, ordinary men in Syria have been gathering evidence of all war crimes committed, whoever the perpetrators. Amid the thunder of bombs, these anonymous and unsung heroes face the risks in hopes to hold those accountable at court.. Ibrahim, Othman, Sami, César, Adel, and Bassam are the backbone of the most important collection of evidence seen during an ongoing conflict. They've recovered military orders, collected bomb fragments, taken toxic samples, filmed mutilated bodies, and archived thousands of testimonies. Without them, the traces of this Syrian tragedy would long be forgotten.. The story behind these "evidence hunters" is a story that Syria has never told before. These brave men chose their mobile phones, pens, and the penal code as their weapons during the war to become witnesses and to fight against the abuses committed in Syria.
