Published: 9/12/2022 12:42:44 PMFor the first time, Sweden is contributing with prosecutorial expertise to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
Due to the war in Ukraine, Sweden has been asked by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to strengthen the organization in various missions.
“Sweden was one of the first countries to respond when the request came. I am proud that our prosecutors can contribute in investigating war crimes at the ICC” says Prosecutor-General Petra Lundh.
In September and October, three prosecutors will start their one-year assignments in The Hague. It has not yet been fully determined which of the ICC's investigations the Swedish prosecutors will work with.
In addition to experience in war crimes investigations, the court requested prosecutors with experience in investigations into sexual offences, IT-related crime and crimes against children, as well as general experience in international work.
