Description

The International Criminal Court (ICC) is a court of global jurisdiction. Without unlimited resources, the Court cannot be present in every place where crimes within its jurisdiction may be committed. The Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) must, therefore, regularly rely on organizations on the ground that have access to witnesses, contacts, and other information that may be crucial to its investigations and/or prosecutions. The OTP's reliance on these organizations is particularly pronounced in the context of situations or cases involving sexual and gender based crimes (SGBC), as these crimes are often under-reported in situations of conflict or mass violence, making evidence collection of such crimes particularly challenging for the Court.
