Dutch Legal Case 'Serving Agendas of American Master' - FarsNews Agency

Syria censured the Netherlands for launching a bid through international bodies to hold the Damascus government responsible for alleged rights violations, saying Amsterdam is seeking to compensate for the failure of Western-backed terrorists in the Arab country.

In a letter addressed to the parliament on Friday, Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok announced that a case was being prepared against Syria at the UN’s highest court, seeking to hold the government of President Bashar al-Assad accountable for “gross human rights violations and torture in particular”, presstv reported.
In a diplomatic note handed to Syrian diplomats in Geneva, Amsterdam asked Damascus to enter negotiations on the alleged human rights abuses.
If the two countries cannot resolve the dispute, the Dutch government can propose arbitration and if that fails, it will pursue action through an international court, the most likely being the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague.
On Saturday, however, an official source at the Syrian Foreign Ministry said the Netherlands is abusing its position as the host of a number of the bodies concerned.
The Netherlands is doing so "in a flagrant violation of its obligations and commitments as the headquarters state of this international organization,” Syria’s official SANA news agency quoted the source as saying.
