Investigations are open in Sweden into representatives of the Syrian regime who are now in the Nordic country, with possible war crimes and crimes against humanity being looked into, a prosecutor told Swedish Radio.

In Germany a trial got underway this week where two former members of the Syrian intelligence service are accused of war crimes. Swedish prosecutor Reena Devgun welcomed the development, and said that long-term investigatory work is going on in Sweden.
