The UN Investigative Team that will gather evidence of Daesh's crimes in Iraq has been set up and is preparing for its deployment to Iraq. It will gather evidence of Daesh crimes, including those against the Yezidi community; it aims to secure justice for all Daesh's victims, regardless of their religion or belief.
The Team is following established UN processes in order to prepare for deployment. We are in regular contact with the UN and the Head of the Team to ensure the Team deploys as quickly as possible, and to ensure that the Team is sufficiently prepared for its deployment in order to be effective. The Special Adviser leading the Team has visited Iraq twice to meet with the Government of Iraq to prepare the ground for his important work.
