PSV Network participates in peer-to-peer training with Serbian War Crimes Prosecutor's Office


From 8-12 April 2019 in Belgrade, Serbia, together with other senior prosecutors from the Mechanism, PSV Network Coordinator Najwa Nabti and Co-Focal Point for Knowledge Exchange Laurel Baig offered advanced training for the Serbian War Crimes Prosecutor’s Office. This intensive, five-day peer-to-peer course on prosecuting conflict-related sexual violence crimes included a series of exercises, court-room challenges and group discussions on developing a prosecution from investigation to appeal. The training offered a unique opportunity for participants to work through common challenges in sexual violence cases and practice in-court strategies together with their colleagues and experienced Mechanism prosecutors. Financial support was generously provided by the European Commission.
