Sharper investigative capacity
To ensure criminal complaints the best chances of success, TRIAL has stepped up its investigative efforts, both prior to and after their filing.
TRIAL International spent several months investigating abroad, including in the Middle East. The investigators met with victims, witnesses and partners, and collected documental evidence, including from the archives of several countries.
Investigative capacities were further enhanced by specialized trainings, close collaborations with former international criminal courts investigators and the recruitment of an additional member formerly working with the French war crimes unit.
