European parliament accused of ‘hiding away’ proof of torture by Assad regime

The European parliament has ruled against holding a major public exhibition of photographs documenting torture and abuse in Syrian government institutions, deeming the images too provocative, “disturbing and offensive”, the Guardian has learned.

The MEPs have decided that the photographs, smuggled out of Syria at great risk by a defector from the Assad regime codenamed Caesar, may only be shown at an undetermined future date in a small conference room on the parliament’s grounds. However, few people are likely to see it there and will not be endorsed by the organisation, even though the exhibition and its horrifying images were officially hosted by the United Nations.

A diplomatic source familiar with the discussions told the Guardian: “These photos are a powerful reminder of the systematic torture and mass killings ongoing in Syria – the very least the European parliament can do is bear witness.
