Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
Former chief prosecutor of the Yugoslavia tribunal Carla Del Ponte no longer wants to work for a United Nations commission investigating human rights violations in Syria. She will resign within a few days. …
The former prosecutor at the start of the war six years ago favoured support for the opposition in Syria which wanted to overthrow President Assad’s government. But now, according to Del Ponte, the Syrian opposition consists mainly of extremists and terrorists.
According to the original text of Ms Del Ponte’s interview with Swiss Blick magazine, the Syrian opposition does not consist ‘mainly’, but ‘exclusively of extremists and terrorists‘.
