Last update: September 2021

On a periodic basis, the Genocide Network, in its effort to raise awareness on accountability and the fight against impunity, gathers and translates judicial decisions of national jurisdictions of EU Members States regarding cases of core international crimes. The current selection of national judicial decisions is predominantly focused on the crimes committed in Syria and Northern Iraq, use of open sources and evidence from social media, as well as cumulative prosecution of foreign terrorist fighters (FTFs) for terrorism-related offences and war crimes. By fighting impunity for core international crimes, EU Member States reiterate their commitment to ensuring that the European Union will not become a safe haven for perpetrators of heinous crimes.

Please note that translation has been provided from the original language into English as a courtesy ofthe Genocide Network Secretariat and Eurojust, and is not the official translation ofthe decisions. The judicial decisions are publicly available in their respective jurisdictions and have been anonymised by the Genocide Network Secretariat.
