KRG Coordinator for International Advocacy meets with UNITAD's Digitization Team

Erbil, Kurdistan Region, Iraq (GOV.KRD) – As part of ongoing coordination efforts between the Kurdistan Regional Government and the United Nations Investigative Team to Promote Accountability for Crimes Committed by Da'esh (UNITAD), the Coordinator for International Advocacy, Dr. Dindar Zebari, met with the Head of the Investigative Unit, Caroline Boysman, and her team, as well as a representative from the Ministry of Interior to discuss progress with the digitization project. 

The digitization project is a joint effort by the Kurdistan Regional Government and UNITAD to promote justice and accountability through the documentation of evidence and awareness campaigns to the international community on the crimes committed by Da’esh against various communities in Iraq. The project lays the groundwork for prosecution cases against Da’esh terrorists for crimes against humanity. 

The Kurdistan Regional Government, with the assistance of the Center of Investigation and Gathering Evidence (CIGE), the Zerevani security office, and the Kidnapped Yazidi Rescue Office, continues to support the collection of evidence related to these crimes to help bring justice to victims and their families. To date, these offices have successfully documented over 100,000 pieces of evidence.
