GENEVA - Justice will catch up with Syrian President Bashar Assad even if he remains in power under a negotiated end to Syria's war, UN human rights investigator Carla del Ponte said on Monday.

"Assad is the president, so let's deal with the institution of president. If we can achieve a cease-fire with the president, why not? But afterwards, justice will come," del Ponte told reporters.

"You remember in former Yugoslavia, Milosevic was president, and it was a peace negotiation at Dayton and they achieved an agreement? And Milosevic was still president, but justice could be done. Just an example from the past."
