The Guardian has learned, The European parliament has ruled against holding a major public exhibition of photographs documenting torture and abuse in Syrian government institutions, deeming the images too provocative, “disturbing and offensive.”
The MEPs have decided that the photographs, smuggled out of Syria at great risk by a defector from the Assad regime codenamed Caesar, may only be shown at an undetermined future date in a small conference room on the parliament’s grounds.
The UN in March hosted an exhibition of 30 photographs out of some 55,000 smuggled by Caesar, a former military photographer who fled the country with the evidence stashed on flash drives. Though warning signs were placed around the exhibition, officials at the time said it was imperative the international community did not “look away” from the atrocities, documented in Syrian government prisons and hospitals.
