Justice Minister Promises Fair Trials for Dissidents

Judges are training to deal with unfamiliar crimes, minister says

Minister of Justice Najm Hamad al-Ahmad has said persons involved in terrorist acts in Syria will receive fair trials according to the best international standards.


During the opening of the 7th training and rehabilitation course in Damascus on Monday, Hamad said the Syrian judiciary "is dealing with crimes that Syrians are not familiar with, in light of an unprecedented and fierce attack against the country, such as organized international terrorism and brutal physical crimes."


He called upon judges to adhere to laws in dispensing their rulings and continue training to develop their skills.


Judge Mohammad Deib al-Maqtaran said that the courses will provide judicial authorities in the country with competent judges to bolster and preserve the rule of law in Syrian society.


There are currently 261 judges from all over Syria taking part in the two-year training course, where they receive theoretical and practical training.
