Syrian state prisons are using electric shocks, rape and sexual violence, the pulling out of fingernails and scalding with hot water, on prisoners. Should the U.N. step in ?

Syrian state prisons are using electric shocks, rape and sexual violence, the pulling out of fingernails and scalding with hot water, on prisoners. Should the U.N. step in ?
  • Yes, the U.N. should stop this.

    The United Nations needs to intervene in the Syrian Civil War to stop the brutality. Syrian prisons are being used as torture chambers; where prisoners are subject to countless human rights violations. The world cannot stand by and let the Syrian government continue to torture people. Therefore, the U.N. must find a way to deal with this situation.

  • Yes, these actions are an obvious breach of human rights and the U.N. should step in.

    Syrian state prisons are torturing prisoners. This is unacceptable treatment of human beings, regardless of any crimes they may or may not have committed. The U.N. is responsible for promoting and protecting human rights - this commitment appears throughout its founding Charter - so to stand back and do nothing is unforgivable.

  • Yes, the U.N. should step in to stop this abuse.

    Syrian state prisons should not be allowed to torture inmates with sexual violence, rap, pulling out fingernails and electric shock. The United Nations Security Council should use its power to step in and prevent the continuous torture and abuse of prisoners. Allowing this abuse to continue goes against everything the U.N. stands for.

  • Yes, the United Nations should step in to help Syrian prisoners

    The human rights of Syrian prisoners is an issue that the United Nations should try to defend. If the U.N. has any power or influence over the country of Syria, it is doubtful. At least the U.N. can step in and bring more attention regarding the mistreatment going on in the Syrian prisons.
