Trial against syrian intelligence officials scheduled for april

The trial against two syrian intelligence officials who seeked asylum in Germany and were arrested in February 2019 is scheduled for april in Koblenz.

"The first trial of suspected members of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's security services for crimes against humanity, including torturing and killing opposition activists, will start next month, a German court said on Tuesday.
In a move welcomed by campaigners as sending a signal to those affected by oppression in Syria, German prosecutors have used universal jurisdiction laws that allow them to prosecute crimes against humanity committed anywhere in the world.
The court in the western city of Koblenz said it had given the green light to a trial starting on April 23."
