A Syrian forensic photographer had smuggled images of Syrians who were killed and tortured by Syrian government forces. “Caesar”, not his real name, said on Capitol Hill, about what was happening in Damascus in front of the US House Foreign Affairs Committee. He wore a hood and wore dark glasses.
The photos had explicitly showed maimed bodies, gouged eyes and skeletal remains. He had photographs of these crimes as he is a forensic photographer. Most of the bodies were delivered to a military hospital. He had collected all his photographs and stored them in a memory stick in his shoes.
The photographs will serve as great evidence for the UN to persecute the Syrian government and President Bashar al-Assad of war crimes.
Caesar was a former seargent and he had involved Syria’s security and intelligence officers being involved in many cases involving torture. His photographs will help serve evidence to prove that the Syrian government has sanctioned mass criminality in Syria.
Caesar said that bodies were numbered and catalogued to help the military remember where they stored the bodies. The Syrian officials used the photographs to ensure higher officials that they have done their task.
He described al-Assad as a man who only wanted to hold power. Caesar was motivated by his work ethic, morals and religion to escape into the United States.
Caesar escaped with the help of friends and family by staging his death and creating a mock funeral. He went to Doha and the US Embassy.
