Investigation and Prosecution of Core International Crimes in the loop!

Monday, July 04, 2022

From 22 to 24 June 2022, EJTN had the pleasure to implement the training focusing on the Investigation and Prosecution of Core International Crimes in partnership with the Genocide Network Secretariat and hosted by the Nuremberg Academy

The training provided judges and prosecutors from European countries with an improved understanding of substantive international criminal law and its practical application. This included the most relevant international and national jurisprudence therein, as well as practical knowledge of the instruments of judicial cooperation within the European Union and stemming from international treaties. Special attention was given to the aspects on the investigation and prosecution of conflict-related sexual violence and the cumulative prosecution of foreign terrorist fighters for war crimes and offenses related to terrorism.

The three-day training combined lectures by experienced judges, prosecutors and experts with practical workshops and plenary discussions. The event culminated with a moot court held in the historic Courtroom 600 (where major war crimes trials were held during 1945-1949) during the last day.
