On Tuesday, January 19th, 2016, GOAL brought the Caesar photographs to Dublin. Caesar is the codename for a former Syrian military policeman, part of whose job was to photograph the bodies of people that died in the custody of the Assad regime in Syria. The Caesar photographs are a representative sample of 55,000 images (of 11,000 people) taken by Caesar and other military photographs in regime detention centres from 2011 to 2013. Caesar claims to have photographed as many as 50 bodies a day.
All the bodies (of men, women and children) show clear signs of torture and starvation.
In this video, Mouaz Moustafa - executive director with the Syrian Emergency Task Force and one of the first people to see the images – explains the story behind the photographs, why people were arrested, and some of the ways in which they were tortured.
