DNMD has a unique experience in the Darfur region. It means it can use those mechanisms in the most rapid and strategic ways to prevent attacks and violations against the civilians and to ensure justice and accountability where they occur.
DNMD identifies, for the first time, individuals suspected of planning, ordering, facilitating, and abetting international crimes and human rights violations. In particular, our reports adopt command responsibility as a legal framework for establishing the criminal responsibility of military and political leaders. This framework is used to apportion responsibility to individuals named in a confidential list submitted to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) to be maintained pending legal.
