The trial of two Syrians accused of hanging an opposition officer


In March, the trial of two Syrian men is expected to begin before the Supreme Court in Düsseldorf, western Germany, for war crimes.
Today, Monday, the court announced that the public prosecutor had initiated a lawsuit against the two men, on suspicion that in 2012 they had participated in the hanging of an officer of the Syrian opposition forces.

The court stated that it accepted the case in a state security case, and the trial will begin on the fourth of next month, when the two men are facing charges, including committing a war crime in Syria, and the trial will include 17 other sessions until next May.

The German authorities arrested the two men in July 2020 in the cities of Essen, western Germany, and Nuremberg, in the state of Saxony-Anhalt, eastern Germany, and the two men have been in pretrial detention since that date.

The court stated that the age of the accused, who had recently resided in Essen, was 35 years old, while the other accused was 43 years old.

According to the prosecution, the two men are believed to have led the bound and severely injured officer to the gallows.
One of them was guarding, while the other was in charge of filming and commenting on the firing of bullets for propaganda purposes.

It is believed that one of the two men belonged to a group that later joined the Al-Nusra Front and therefore he is facing charges of joining a terrorist group while the other is believed to be fighting without belonging to this group or other groups.
