Justice will catch up with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad even if he remains in power under a negotiated peace deal, a UN human rights investigator has warned.
Carla Del Ponte, a former chief prosecutor for war crimes in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, told reporters:
Assad is the president, so let's deal with the institution of president. If we can achieve a ceasefire with the president, why not? But afterwards, justice will come.
You remember in former Yugoslavia, Milosevic was president, and it was a peace negotiation at Dayton and they achieved an agreement? And Milosevic was still president, but justice could be done. Just an example from the past.
