Investigators and lawyers have built war crimes cases against Syria's President Bashar Assad and key institutions of his regime with documents smuggled out of the country, a report said Wednesday.The Guardian newspaper said the Commission for International Justice and Accountability (CIJA) had already built three cases against the regime for crimes against humanity and is continuing to assemble evidence against others in the regime as well as in the opposition. The British daily said the cases were largely based on government documents smuggled out of Syria by a team of 60 investigators who had risked their lives to collect the evidence that now runs to around half a million pages. The group is also building up possible war crimes cases against rebel groups fighting Assad, including ISIS, and has hired staff to review hours of video evidence.
