The 21st century way to professionalise international justice investigations

Sunday, January 7, 2018 - 09:37

When there is an atrocity committed in a far-flung part of the world and experts are needed to investigate it, Justice Rapid Response (JRR) has the capacity to quickly assemble a team to collect and preserve evidence for use in future legal action against the perpetrator(s). In an interview with Justice Hub, JRR’s Executive Director Andras Vamos-Goldman told us “The 21st century works very differently. It requires a much faster reaction time because everything is faster in the 21st century so we are there to try to make the work of institutions including the work the ICC, the UN, and regional bodies faster. Not just faster but also more cost-effective.”

Jimena Reyes of FIDH: If the ICC wants to keep its legitimacy it has to open a preliminary examination in Mexico

Saturday, November 18, 2017 - 09:40

What to do about a country that has experienced 200,000 murders and 32,000 disappearances over the last 10 years? According to a new report by the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), together with several Mexican human rights organisations, murders and disappearances within the northern state of Coahuila de Zaragoza are not "solely attributable to drug cartels". Rather state authorities have "committed crimes against humanity in undeniable collusion with the Zetas cartel", And, later, the NGOs say, "state authorities responsible for law enforcement directly committed crimes against humanity through their Special Forces". Presenting the report in The Hague, FIDH - with signatures from about 100 Mexican NGOs, urged the prosecutors at the International Criminal Court (ICC) to launch a preliminary examination.
