Today, the crowdfunding campaign „LET’S CREATE TWO, THREE, MANY CONGO TRIBUNALS!” launched on INDIEGOGO! Help us make The Congo Tribunal an institution – like, share, donate, support this project!
Since the first Congo Tribunal, the victims of mass crimes and the civil society in the provinces of North and South Kivu continue to demand justice and an independent and impartial tribunal capable of applying the rules and principles of the law to a fair trial. In 2018, the internationally renowned lawyers Jean-Louis Gilissen, victim’s representative at the International Criminal Court and chairman of the Congo Tribunal, and Sylvestre Bisimwa, Congolese human rights lawyer and prosecutor of the Congo Tribunal, intend to establish a continuous legal investigation of human rights violations at local level. The campaign „LET’S CREATE TWO, THREE, MANY CONGO TRIBUNALS!” is also supported by the Swiss Federal Councillor for Justice, Simonetta Sommaruga and the German Federal Judge Dr. Nikolaus Berger. We want to support the planned tribunals because we are convinced that they will help pave the way for peace!
THE GOAL of this project is to introduce and establish an institution, which reappraises the mass and economic crimes in local civil tribunals in the region.
