Mohamad K. is a former member of the Free Syrian Army (FSA). He was accused of having committed war crimes in Idlib, Syria. Jointly with two other members of the FSA, Mohamad allegedly captured and detained two members of an armed group fighting on the side of the Syrian government for an unknown period of time between January 2012 and January 2013. To punish the detained fighters, Mohamad K. allegedly tortured the almost unclothed men by beating them severely and repeatedly with a cable-like object. The torture was filmed by another FSA member and published on YouTube. Those videos show Mohamad K. hitting the detainees on the soles of their feet, legs, upper body and back. According to the Tribunal’s findings, the beatings were reported to have been particularly violent and humiliating.
