ICC Juridical mandate on war crimes committed in Syria To the Office of The Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court,

We, the undersigned Syrian NGOs and victim groups, express our full support to the Article 15

Communication submitted by the Guernica Centre for International Justice with regards to the

jurisdiction of the ICC over the hideous crimes committed against the Syria civilian population.

For the last 8 years, Syrians have lost so much. They have been tortured and killed. They

have been forcibly displaced. They have been targeted. All of that happened and continues to

happen with absolute impunity to the perpetrators.

Ruling for the ICC jurisdiction mandate to include those crimes is a crucial step towards justice

in Syria. The ICC has the mandate to investigate such crimes, and it needs to fulfil this mandate.

In an increasingly gloomy situation, this comes as a spark of hope.

We look forward to receiving positive news for Justice in syria soon as we renew our readiness

to share evidences Syrians risked their lives to document and protect over the years; if it would

mean that justice will be served.

Sincerely,

Signatories,
