Luis Moreno-Ocampo’s visit to Lalish

By Rudaw 4/9/2015

Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the former chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), visited the Yezidi holy site of Lalish on Tuesday.

In his visit he proposed to the Yezidi community a legal argument that could allow the court to investigate Islamic State war crimes against the Yezidis in the north of Iraq, despite the fact that Iraq is not a member state of the court. 
 
“Victims need truth, victims need reparation, victims need justice and victims need the security that the crimes will not be repeated,” he said.  

Rudaw’s camera has captured scenes of Moreno-Ocampo visiting the Lalish Temple and prominent Yezidi community leaders.
