Ukraine: EU strengthens International Criminal Court ability to process digital evidence


In mid-December, the European Commission and the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) concluded an agreement that strengthens the court’s ability to process digital evidence. This will also be useful in investigations into Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine. 

As part of the agreement, the EU is providing €7.25 million to help the ICC process new forms of evidence more efficiently.

With EU support, the Office of the Prosecutor will be able to expand its data storage and processing infrastructure and build additional analytical and forensic capacity. This includes software for the automatic transcription of video footage, enabling investigators to systematically search through large volumes of evidence. In addition, artificial intelligence can be used to greatly enhance the ability of analysts to filter and search video and audio evidence.
