France has issued international arrest warrants for three senior Syrian intelligence officials in connection with the death of two Franco-Syrian nationals.

French newspaper Le Monde reported that the decision was not yet announced in France, and is still part of the open judicial information since October 2016.

According to the newspaper, warrants were issued by an examining magistrate, in accordance with the prosecution’s submissions, on the counts of “complicity in acts of torture, complicity in enforced disappearances, complicity in crimes against humanity, and war crimes.”

Among those prosecuted by the warrants is Ali Mamlouk, the current director of National Security in Syria, and two others, namely Jameel al-Hassan, Syria's air force intelligence chief, and the head of air force intelligence in Bab Tuma, Damascus.
