, Index number: MDE 24/081/2011

In this document, civil society organizations from around the world urgently call on the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council (HRC) to convene a special session on Syria immediately after the release of the report of the HRC International Commission of Inquiry on Syria (the Commission of Inquiry). The previous HRC Fact Finding Mission found evidence indicating that crimes under international law, including crimes against humanity, and other grave violations of human rights have been committed by the government of Syria in the context of largely peaceful pro-democracy protests.
