13,000 people hanged in prison Syria

Between 2011 and 2015 in the Saydnaya prison found at the Syrian capital Damascus each week mass executions. About 13,000 people are hanged, Amnesty International concluded in a report published Tuesday.

Not one of the prisoners that are suspended in the Saydnaya prison receives this horrific punishment after something even remotely resembling a fair trial, says Amnesty. "A so-called military court condemns a prisoner in a procedure that spot with all legal standards and not more than two minutes."

The report Human slaughterhouse: Mass hangings and death camps at Saydnaya prison, according to Amnesty shows that the Syrian Government deliberately inhumane conditions in prison creates by means of torture and the systematic remembering eating, drinking, drugs and medical care.

The hangings in the Saydnaya prison found a once or twice a week, usually on Monday and Wednesday, in the middle of the night. At a time to 50 prisoners were executed.

"The Syrian authorities at the highest level to give their approval to the killings and abuses in the prison, which can be qualified as war crimes and crimes against humanity", writes Amnesty.
