In a coordinated operation, Germany and Sweden detained suspects allegedly linked to the Free Palestine Movement, which controlled Damascus’s al-Yarmouk district under the Syrian regime during a severe blockade. The suspects face accusations including murder, torture, and the violent suppression of a peaceful protest in July 2012, which resulted in multiple civilian casualties.



In investigating the alleged war crimes in Syria, iCognative technology serves as a crucial tool. Authorities deploy this technology to scrutinize suspects’ brain responses to specific stimuli that directly link to the crimes. For example, they might use images from violent crackdowns, the sounds of protests, or details about torture methods pertinent to the conflict’s time and place. As the suspects encounter these stimuli, iCognative technology captures their brain’s electrical activity to identify recognition patterns. When a significant response emerges, it suggests that the suspect has prior knowledge or familiarity with the depicted events or objects, thus indicating their potential involvement in the crimes. This method delivers highly reliable evidence directly from the brain, significantly enhancing the precision and efficiency of legal processes in complex cases like war crimes.

By incorporating iCognative, authorities can enhance the accuracy and efficiency of investigations, ensuring that those truly responsible for serious crimes are brought to justice based on reliable, scientifically obtained evidence.
