Impunity is not inevitable!


Dear friends,

The Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is known as one of the poorest and most violent regions in the country. Between 2016 and 2017, the population suffered a dramatic rise in violence: more than 80 mass graves have been discovered so far and thousands of cases of torture and rape have been reported.

But on 16 March 2021, TRIAL International and its partners demonstrated that impunity is not inevitable in Kasai! A commander of the Kamuina Nsapu armed insurgency was found guilty of war crimes and more than 200 victims were granted reparations. 

Last but not least, we are excited to announce the upcoming launch of the Universal Jurisdiction Annual Review (UJAR). This is TRIAL International’s main legal publication, explaining the most important ongoing cases based on this principle. Stay tuned!

As usual, we thank you for your support and wish you a pleasant read,

The TRIAL International team
