Report Crimes

Empowering justice through documenting international crimes and human rights violations.

We need your help to hold accountable those who have committed war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, and other human rights violations in Afghanistan since May 1, 2003, when Afghanistan joined the International Criminal Court (ICC). Your information is vital for initiating strong cases against perpetrators, eliminating immunity for criminals, raising awareness of the crimes’ impact, and highlighting the need for justice.

Why Focus on Afghanistan?

Afghanistan faces a long and tragic history of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and ongoing human rights violations. While our current focus is Afghanistan, the ITJP is committed to expanding our efforts to other war-torn regions in the near future.

Who Can Make a Report?
If you or someone you know suffered from these crimes, witnessed them, or have information about them, please use our online or offline forms to report it. 
Why Should You Report?
Reporting crimes and documenting them are crucial steps in addressing them, as they can result in legal actions, such as initiating a lawsuit in the International Criminal Court or holding nation-states responsible for addressing the issues. Justice becomes attainable when crimes are recognized and properly documented. Reporting prevents these crimes from being concealed and aids in holding perpetrators accountable.
Type of Crimes to Report?
We have provided comprehensive topics to understand the type of core international crimes and human rights violations, and reporting of incidents encompassing such crimes. To ensure the accuracy and efficacy of your reports, we invite you to consult our “Pick a Topic” page, which assists in categorizing and selecting the most appropriate crime type for your submission.

We base our definitions on various authoritative sources, including the four Geneva Conventions of 1949, the Rome Statute, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and more. Here are the categories you can choose from:

  • War Crimes: Violation of law during armed conflicts and involve actions such as attacking civilians or civilian infrastructure like schools, hospitals, and religious sites. Other violations include forcibly displacing civilians, using prohibited weapons (such as biological and chemical arms), employing specific types of landmines, unlawfully killing civilians and wounded soldiers, as well as subjecting prisoners to torture.

  • Crimes Against Humanity: This category pertains to systematic acts that cause severe suffering to civilians. Examples include murder, enforced disappearance, torture, inhumane treatment, and persecution based on factors like race, ethnicity, or gender. Other acts within this category involve rape, sexual violence, and more.

  • Genocide: Genocidal acts have the purpose of destroying a specific group. This can involve actions like killing, causing harm, preventing births, and targeting members of the group. These actions often lead to serious bodily or mental harm among the group’s members.

  • Human Rights Abuses: Violations of fundamental human rights, as outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, constitute human rights abuses. These abuses encompass a wide range of actions, such as arbitrary detention, restrictions on freedom of expression, discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender, or religion, forced labor, slavery, violence against women, violations of economic, social, and cultural rights, as well as suppression of political participation.
What We Do?
We document and record these crimes, striving for justice and providing support to victims in their quest for justice, including pursuing litigation at the International Criminal Court and within nation-states. Our aim is to narrate the consequences of these crimes and human rights violations – narrating the impact on the peoples and their loved ones – through the publication of their stories and messages, in order to amplify their voices and ensure justice
