A Canadian ex-soldier who once advised the defense in the trial of Saddam Hussein is leading an effort to prepare prosecution-ready dossiers of evidence against persons responsible for crimes in Syria's war.The three cases target Syria's war Cabinet, the National Security Bureau that coordinates the country's security agencies, and the Security Committee of Deir al-Zor province, based on "a very large collection" of captured documents.However, no court is willing to hear the evidence and the path to the International Criminal Court is blocked by Russian and Chinese veto power at the United Nations.CIJA's forensic focus aims to ensure the prosecution case is ready to go as soon as there is a court available, which Wiley said sets it apart from other entities that are documenting Syrian crimes, such as a U.N. commission of inquiry.
