Launch of new report from the Commission: “Out of sight, out of mind: Deaths in detention in the Syrian Arab Republic”. In the Syrian Arab Republic, massive and systematised violence – including the killing of detainees in official and makeshift detention centres – has taken place out of sight, far from the battlefield. This paper examines the killing of detainees, on all sides of the conflict, occurring between 10 March 2011 and 30 November 2015. This document will be shared with you under embargo shortly before the press conference.
