NAIROBI WORKSHOP

THE COMPENDIUM OF BEST PRACTICES IN INVESTIGATION AND PROSECUTION OF


INTERNATIONAL CRIMES AND ITS LOCAL APPLICATION
MONDAY, 27 APRIL 2015, 10:00 14:00
Strathmore Law School, Madaraka, Nairobi West
TOPICS AND OBJECTIVES
To discuss how to use the Compendium of Best Practices in Investigations and Prosecution of
International Crimes in national prosecution units
To identify the chapters of the Compendium which might be of interest to national prosecutors engaged in using their domesticated Rome Statute, such as the International Crimes Act, to
investigate and prosecute international crimes
To discuss the challenges of witness protection (that is, base-line assessments and the
necessity of witness protection from the outset of an investigation up to prosecution and trial)
To endeavour to nationalise the Compendium; for instance, by drawing up an expansion
of the Compendium based on lessons learnt and experiences of national prosecutors (adding
experience gained at the national level to international experience)
To draw up training modules for relevant, previously identied chapters (for example, joint
investigation teams, witness protection, analysis-driven investigations, linkage evidence, evidence
analysis and management, and trial preparations)
