French judge says technology firm Qosmos now "assisted witness" over possible complicity in acts of torture committed in Syria

"Designation of Qosmos as "assisted witness" constitutes an important step forward in case underway", 20 Apr 2015

After being questioned by the investigative judge of the specialised unit for war crimes and crimes against humanity at the Paris Court, the technology company QOSMOS was declared an "assisted witness" for its possible complicity -in acts of torture committed in Syria.“We hope that,... the inquiry will shed light on the conditions that allowed for the installation of a large-scale communications surveillance system benefitting the criminal regime of Bachar el-Assad..." said Michel Tubiana, LDH Honorary President.This decision is part of the judicial investigation that was opened following the complaint filed by FIDH and LDH denouncing the participation of the French company, QOSMOS, in the installation of a large-scale electronic communication surveillance system for the Bachar el-Assad regime which it used to track, torture, and execute its opponents.
