The petition stated that the militia has committed crimes of killing, arbitrary arrest, forced disappearance, torture, detonating and demolishing houses.

According to the petition, the militias carried out more than 20 executions against social dignitaries and leaders of the GPC, arrested above 200 persons in unknown detention places, some of them forced disappearances, detonating 11 houses, damaging partially or totally some 100 private-owned properties.
