2016-05-23: EU Day Against Impunity

for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes


First #EUDayAgainstImpunity: EU is not a safe haven for perpetrators of atrocious crimes http://www.eurojust.europa.eu/press/PressReleases/Pages/2016/2016-05-




Excerpt: "The first annual EU Day Against Impunity for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes took place today in The Hague, under the Netherlands EU Presidency. The event was hosted by Eurojust, and organised in cooperation with the European Commission and the Network for investigation and prosecution of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes."




Ending impunity through national prosecutions. Protecting humanity and rendering justice. – #EUDayagainstImpunity amp.twimg.com/v/6c44cf14-de4…:

We have come a long way since the international tribunals in Nuremberg and Tokyo seventy years ago to the establishment of the International Criminal Court. The European Union fully backs the effective functioning of the International Criminal Court.


It also seeks to advance universal support for it by promoting the widest possible participation in the Rome Statute.


Let me briefly focus on the "Network of Contact Points in respect of Persons responsible for Genocide, Crimes against Humanity and War Crimes", hosted by Eurojust.


Since its inception in 2002 it has played a key role in facilitating cooperation between national authorities.
