We call upon the French Minister of Justice to ensure that France’s new War Crimes Unit is provided with adequate resources and support, including a sufficient number of magistrates and adapted resources, including sufficient budgetary resources to undertake the necessary investigations, particularly in the countries where the crimes were committed.  so as to be enable it to effectively fight against impunity for war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and torture.

In addition, we call upon the Minister of the Interior to create a “central office” specialized in international crimes, to integrate the already operational staff, develop a systematic, strategic and coordinated approach to investigating international crimes, and  improve international cooperation within Europe and beyond.
