TO GO WITH AFP STORY SYRIA-CONFLICT-JUSTICE-RELIGION-ISLAM Marwan Gayn, one of seven judges the rebel Free Syria Army has mandated to work in Aleppo, poses at the court of Saif al-Dawlah district on January 1, 2013 in Aleppo. In the heart of Syria's rebel territory, away from the blasts and bullets of the frontlines, another struggle is playing out: one for a new justice system that could shape the future face of the country should the regime fall. The struggle is between ex-regime judges and Islamic jihadists, and at stake is whether the courts apply a modified version of existing Syrian law, or switch to strict sharia law.
