To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Anelay of St Johns on 8 February (HL5121), how many projects are actively collecting evidence against perpetrators of violence, war crimes, crimes against humanity or genocide in Iraq, and what are the objectives of each project.
There are a large number of evidence collection projects operating in Iraq. These projects are collecting various types of evidence, of a variety of crimes, to differing legal standards. This work needs to be better coordinated to ensure all evidence is collected to court-ready standards and to ensure that gaps in evidence collection are filled. Through the 'Bringing Daesh to Justice' campaign we are looking at ways to address this need.
