Chris Engels ’04 Featured in Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Documentary

Chris Engels '04, Deputy Director for Investigations and Operations for the Commission for International Justice and Accountability (CIJA), is featured in an episode of The Fifth Estate, an investigative documentary program produced by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

The episode, titled “The Truth Smugglers,” concerns the effort to document the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's culpability in acts of torture, murder, and other crimes. Under Engel's direction, CIJA has collected more than 600,000 documents that have been smuggled at great risk out of Syria and which implicate the Assad regime in various crimes.
