Shownotes

We’re back today for a short but important update: The German Federal Court rejected Eyad A.’s appeal arguments following his conviction in February 2021.

In this bonus episode, Fritz summarizes the appeals court’s decision and relates it to the wider significance of the Al-Khatib Trial.

What does the decision mean for Eyad A. himself, and the time he will still have to spend in prison? And what does it mean for the overall struggle for justice and accountability for Syria, especially in these times of the so-called ‘normalization’ of the Assad regime?
