In the fifth episode Ibrahim Olabi depicts his work in and on Syria. He explains why the country evades the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court in The Hague and why Syrian war criminals are being tried before the German court in Koblenz instead.
And, why of all things is the armed Syrian opposition interested in legal advice?
Further, he discusses the topic of sanctions imposed on the Syrian regime and why they did not fulfil their hoped-for results yet.
Lastly, he urges Europe to adopt an unanimous position vis-à-vis the Assad regime and to become aware of its so far untapped sway in the Syrian conflict and leverage on Russia and Iran.
