The U.N. Commission of Inquiry on Syria has gathered enough evidence for President Bashar Assad to be convicted of war crimes, a prominent member of the commission, Carla del Ponte, said in remarks published Sunday. Del Ponte, 70, who prosecuted war crimes in Rwanda and former Yugoslavia, announced last week that she was stepping down from her role in frustration at the U.N. Security Council's failure to continue the commission's work by setting up a special tribunal for Syria that could try alleged war criminals. The Syrian government led by Assad denies reports by the commission documenting widespread war crimes committed by government-backed forces and Syria's security services.
