Over the course of the week from 29 November to 3 December 2021, the Wayamo Foundation held two different workshops in Abuja, both in their respective ways linked to the need to address international crimes that fall under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC). 

Third workshop for the Serious Crimes Response Team

The goal of this third SCRT workshop is to build on the discussions held, and explore the next practical steps to be taken to ensure that the idea of creating a SCRT takes shape and eventually becomes functional and operational. The SCRT is intended to be a highly specialised unit of military investigators and prosecutors from all three Services, who will be specifically trained to investigate and prosecute serious crimes that have allegedly been committed by the Armed Forces, and potentially fall under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
