Special Adviser Meets the Minister of Foreign Affairs
A partnership for justice. In his meeting today with H.E. Fuad Hussein Minister of Foreign Affairs, Special Adviser Karim Khan QC emphasized the importance of the partnership between UNITAD and the Government of Iraq to ensure accountability for ISIL crimes is delivered.
Both agreed that accountability must be holistic, and should allow for prosecution of ISIL members in Iraq for international crimes to ensure these acts are properly labelled, to honor the sacrifices made by the people of Iraq and respond to the calls for justice by victims and survivors.
To achieve this, work will continue to support the adoption of the legislative amendments before Parliament of Iraq which would allow the prosecution of ISIL members for War Crimes Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide.
