International Criminal Court sent the “largest-ever” investigative team to Ukraine
On May 17, 2022, the International Criminal Court sent a 42-member team to Ukraine to probe alleged war crimes since the Russian invasion.
Karim Khan, the Chief Prosecutor of the Hague-based ICC, called it the largest ever single field deployment in the history of the International Criminal Court. The squad comprises investigators, forensic experts, and support staff and will work with Ukrainian authorities.
The ICC formally opened an investigation into the situation in Ukraine on March 2, 2022, and the team will collect testimonial accounts and forensic and digital materials as part of that probe.
