The Security Council heard a briefing this morning from Mr. Karim Asad Ahmad Khan, Special Adviser and Head of the United Nations Investigative Team to assist in bringing the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant " ISIL (Daesh) ”to answer for his crimes (UNITAD), which presented its fourth activity report *. The Council also heard the representative of Iraq. 


Social distancing obliges, it is each in his mission that the 15 members of the Council make their statement and dialogue with their guests, thanks to a videoconferencing system specially designed for them. 


The Special Adviser informed the Council that the six-month period under review has been marked by significant progress in identifying and gathering new sources of evidence which, if fully exploited, could mark a paradigm shift in the prosecution of Daesh members for the crimes committed in Iraq. 


He welcomed the progress which continued to be based on two key pillars, on the one hand, the expertise and technology of the Investigative Team and, on the other, the close collaboration with the national and local authorities of the country. He noted that through close cooperation with the Iraqi justice system, the Team has been able to obtain more than two million telephone data from Iraqi mobile providers on crimes committed against the Yazidi community of Sinjar, and that data Similar data were collected on the massacres perpetrated by Daesh against air force cadets in Tikrit.


The Special Adviser explained that this information would, along with other evidence, allow the movements of the suspects to be traced and to provide an indisputable picture of the events. He also spoke of collaboration with the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, which has given access to a wide range of digital evidence extracted from mobile phones, laptops and other devices seized from Daesh. 



The extraction of this data led to the discovery of information on the internal functioning of Daesh in Mosul, including their administrative infrastructure and their pay system, with also videos on the activities carried out during the period covered by the investigation.

He also cited the use of 3D laser scanning and modeling at major crime scenes in Iraq as well as the establishment of a team of experts' expert evidence management system that allows investigators to '' securely record images and geolocation and perform a digital signature using their portable devices.


After drawing attention to the initiatives of the Kurdistan Regional Government which has digitized hundreds of thousands of files, documents and digital evidence related to the crimes of Daesh, the Special Adviser has warned that the Iraqi communities will not be satisfied until justice will be brought before the courts and when the survivors of Daesh atrocities see their attackers convicted on the basis of irrefutable evidence collected in accordance with international standards.


Finally, the Special Adviser said that he presented a strategy document to the Government of Iraq in April 2020, which sets out the path for the trials in Iraq of Daesh members accused of war crimes, crimes against humanity or crimes of genocide .


According to the last activity report, the Investigative Team continued to progress in achieving its priorities, a number of avenues having now reached the phase of consolidation of evidence and legal analysis. Two additional investigation units are now operational in the field. 


Priority was given to the search for new sources of evidence. The integration of Iraqi criminal law experts is also an important step in ensuring that the work of the Team effectively supports national efforts to establish accountability. In addition, technical assistance and knowledge-sharing initiatives with the Iraqi authorities have been expanded, including training and the provision of equipment related to digital forensics and witness protection. . 


Another important element: in March 2020, the Team Leader supported the adoption of a “historic” document entitled “Confessional declaration relating to the victims of Daesh” in which the leaders of all the major faiths in Iraq underlined their commitment to support the Investigative Team.
