Secret lists of Syria war crimes suspects that have been compiled by U.N. investigators are now ready to share, the chairman of the United Nations’ commission of inquiry said on Tuesday.

If released, the list of suspects would be shared with any prosecution authorities preparing cases.

Chairman Paulo Pinheiro urged national authorities to contact the independent investigators who have compiled five confidential lists over the past four years.

“We can best aid the pursuit of justice at this time through targeted disclosure. We will share names and information about specific alleged perpetrators with state prosecution authorities that are preparing cases to be heard before a competent and impartial judiciary,” Pinheiro told the U.N. Human Rights Forum in Geneva.
