Ambassador Joonkook Hwang commended UNITAD’s tireless pursuit of evidence-based justice that establishes the truth and fulfills the requests of victims in Iraq.

To preserve the legacy of UNITAD beyond September, Amb. Hwang reiterated the importance of continuous assistance to build the capacity of the Iraqi judiciary system, the establishment of a system to share the UNITAD archives with other states, and ongoing efforts on sexual and gender-based crimes and crimes against children committed by Daesh.

Amb. Hwang underlined that UNITAD has commendably paved the foundation of accountability for the crimes of Daesh and pursued common justice against terrorism. He reaffirmed that the ROK stands firmly with the government of Iraq and the Iraqi people to deliver justice for Daesh atrocities.
