The proposed United Nations Commission for the investigation of war crimes is intended to be a fact-finding body. As such its function would be to record the evidence submitted to it by the Governments concerned against all individuals responsible, whether as ringleaders or as actual perpetrators, for the commission of atrocities. It will be open to the Governments concerned to submit to the Commission any such evidence against the persons so responsible whoever they may be.
