Since SNHR restructured in 04-11-2011 , our efforts have been representing to fill the gap of covering human rights violation in Syria in the international media for the subjective and internal reasons
SNHR is doing all in our power to overcome these reasons without delay.
It reflected that tens of elite international media institutions ( such as CNN, NBC,SKY NEWS, BBC , NEW YORK TIMES , LOS ANGELES TIMES , ALJAZEERA ENGLISH ) , other Arab Media Station ( such as Jazeera , Arabya , Orient , Sorya Alghad ,,, ) and Arab websites rely in their daily media reports and lengthy program prepared of Syrian Revolution on information and sources of SNHR
NSHR would like to clarify with unacceptable confusion that :
We adopt the highest approved documentation principles by the international bodies
and we are independent of any government or political donor whether opposition or loyal to the Syrian regime
We did not and will not accept any external funding , only received by SNHR members to ensure our excellence independence and professionalism in documenting Human Rights Violations in Syria
It should be noted that SNHR licensed and registered in United Kingdom has nothing to do with some bodies loyal to the Syrian regime , which issue statements on behalf SNHR in Damascus aiming to distort facts about Human Rights violations in Syria that match all taxonomic conditions to be definite as crimes against Humanity and are worth to submit all those responsible to ICC
SNHR headquarters in Syria which are distributed in all the Syrian governorate in addition to the headquarters out of Syria , ( London – Doha , Kuwait and Turkey) , communicate and coordinate momentary with each other for management the work and prepare daily and strategically reports
