UNICRI publish “A Prosecutor’s Guide to Radiological and Nuclear Crimes”.


The United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) have published “A Prosecutor’s Guide to Radiological and Nuclear Crimes”. 

The guide is the second manual issued by UNICRI with funding received from the European Commission within the framework of the European Union’s (EU) Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Risk Mitigation Centres of Excellence (CoE) Initiative.

The guide has been developed by UNICRI in close coordination with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Nuclear Forensic Laboratory of the Joint Research Centre (JRC - European Commission), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP), and other international partners and relevant subject matter experts from the EU CBRN CoE Initiative.

The guide aims to assist prosecutors, investigators and relevant law enforcement and judicial authorities in the successful investigation, prosecution and adjudication of incidents involving the deliberate acquisition, stockpiling, production, transfer, use or misuse of radiological and nuclear (RN) materials.
The guide can be found here.
