As Russia & China block International Criminal Court jurisdiction over Syria, the impunity enjoyed by the Assad government has led to ~200K civilians killed including tens of thousands "disappeared" and thousands subjected to torture & death in detention. https://t.co/VvxQvdM37E https://t.co/izhZ9WR8d7

China's foreign minister says Beijing "is willing to engage with 'all parties' to ease the crisis" in Myanmar. But engagement isn't the issue. Will Beijing put pressure on the junta to reverse the coup? Why is it blocking strong UN Security Council action? https://t.co/fTJht59Gtr https://t.co/DEcz698dpE

The Myanmar junta's new lobbyist says "the military was best placed to oversee a return to democracy after the coup it staged." Well yes, it can reverse the coup & allow the elected government to take power. But Gen Min Aung Hlaing instead wants a do-over. https://t.co/kkJrodBBdC https://t.co/q1ifq5HlqS

China's foreign minister says Hong Kong needs "electoral reform." What he really means, judging by Beijing's actions, is the abolition of meaningful elections. The Chinese government prefers the fake "elections" they hold in Beijing. https://t.co/ZmDTEY5NAt https://t.co/6bxW1VMplY

We've seen what the Myanmar military can do: think about the atrocities committed against Rohingya Muslims. If the world doesn't act to reverse the coup -- if China doesn't stop blocking strong UN Security Council action -- the results could be disastrous. https://t.co/8cgobQxpqj https://t.co/4l97cKr1jo

Germany has become the go-to place for prosecuting officials who commit atrocities because it has a broad law on universal jurisdiction (giving jurisdiction for atrocities committed abroad) and has invested the resources in mounting prosecutions. https://t.co/DVjlh2dEOo https://t.co/ITLvtfEz7P
