“ISIS not facing trial is a threat to the world”
Syrian Democratic Modern Party Administrator Mahir Temran said ISIS members captured by the SDF not facing trial constitutes a grave threat to the world.
The issue of thousands of ISIS members captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in operations in North and East Syria facing trial at an international court remains on the agenda.
Syrian Democratic Modern Party Administrator Mahir Temran said, “It is high time the international powers meet the demand by the people of North and East Syria to have the ISIS gangs face trial at an international court.”
“GREAT THREAT AGAINST THE REGION”
Temran said ISIS members and their families remaining under arrest without any sort of trial is a great burden on the Autonomous Administration and added that the presence of the gangs means the threat in the region continues. Temran said: “The region is under a blockade and threat, and the Autonomous Administration does not have the means to house these gang members.”
“WESTERN STATES MUST DO THEIR DUTY”
Temran said an international court must be founded in North and East Syria and continued:
“Certain states haven’t clarified their stance on the establishment of an international court, and don’t accept to take back their citizens either. If Western states are not going to take back their citizens as is their duty, they must ensure the establishment of an international court in the Autonomous Administration territory for the trial of these terrorists.”
Temran protested the states that have refrained from repatriating their citizens: “Western states don’t think of anything but their immediate interest. This mindset will cause problems that will create large scale harm. All threats against the Autonomous Administration territories must be ended as they have paid a great price because of terrorism.”
Temran called on international powers for the establishment of an international court for the trial of ISIS gangs: “Each state must fulfill their duty and responsibility on this matter. If ISIS gangs are not put on trial, they will pose a grave threat against the region and the world.”
