Between 14 – 21 September 2021, the Wayamo Foundation held a series of training sessions for prosecutors from Nigeria’s Complex Casework Group (CCG) focusing on their new case-filing system and the use of Intella software for evidence management.
The workshop brought together prosecutors from the Complex Casework Group (CCG) and investigators from the Joint Investigation Centre and 7 Military Investigations Bureau, as a practical step aimed at “enhancing interagency collaboration to bring the electronic case-file database for terrorism files to fruition”. In order for this newly created database and its case- and evidence-management software to attain their combined potential, investigators and prosecutors need to collaborate from the earliest stages of an investigation. This database will also serve to build more complex cases which may address international crimes that fall under the jurisdiction of the ICC.
Wayamo Foundation and KAS Rule of Law Program for Anglophone Sub-Saharan Africa take pride in announcing that they will be holding a two-day expert workshop in Pretoria on the nexus and linkages between terrorism, human rights, and international crimes. This workshop will bring together counter-terrorism and international criminal justice experts, human rights advocates, academics and practitioners from Europe and selected countries from Eastern, Southern and West Africa.
