ICTR/INFO-9-2-749.EN

Today, the Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) for the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), released a comprehensive manual to identify best practices in the prosecution of sexual violence crimes in post-conflict regions. The manual draws on the OTP’s nearly 20-year experience in prosecuting sexual violence crimes perpetrated during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. During the Genocide, rape and other forms of sexual violence were used as a means to perpetrate genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
