Russia says against referring Syria crisis to war crimes court

MOSCOW, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Permanent U.N. Security Council member Russia said in a Foreign Ministry statement on Tuesday that an effort by dozens of countries to refer the Syrian crisis to the International Criminal Court was “ill-timed and counterproductive”.

More than 50 countries asked the Security Council on Monday to refer the crisis in Syria to the court, which prosecutes people for genocide and war crimes.
