REDRESS, alongside several international civil society organisations, has signed a joint letter to the UN Special Rapporteur of the International Law Commission on Crimes against Humanity, in order to seek an opportunity to provide input in the drafting of a possible Convention on Crimes against Humanity. In particular, we call for any draft to include provisions on Universal Jurisdiction; particularly, to oblige states parties to exercise jurisdiction when a person, suspected of responsibility for crimes against humanity, is found on their territory, and to permit States to initiate investigations based on universal jurisdiction over crimes against humanity suspects, regardless of where such persons are physically located.
