The UN Commission has enough evidence to condemn Syrian President Bashar Assad. This was stated by Commissioner Carla Del Ponte, writes Reuters. Answering a question in the Swiss newspaper Sonntags Zeitung about whether there is enough evidence that Assad was convicted of war crimes, she said: "Yes, I am convinced of this. Despite this, there is no prosecutor and court hearings".

Last week Del Ponte announced that she was giving up her place in the commission because of her disappointment with the inability of the UN Security Council to continue working by creating a special tribunal for Syria.

The Syrian government, led by Assad, refutes the commission's reports, which describe war crimes committed by the pro-government forces of the country.

Earlier, the European Union extended sanctions against the Syrian regime for the use of chemical weapons.
