Source: International Criminal Court
Case: The Prosecutor v. Bosco Ntaganda
Situation: Situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
ICC-01/04-02/06-53-Anx1, Annex 1 to the Transmission to Pre-Trial Chamber II of a Registry report on proof of identity documents available in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
The purpose of this Report is to provide information about the various documents available in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) that may assist in establishing a person’s identity, in the context of victims’ applications to participate in the proceedings which must be supported by a proof of identity and/or proof of kinship.
The Court’s experience so far has shown that applicants from the DRC are not always able to provide official documents, or they are sometimes of poor quality. This report therefore includes information concerning a wider range of documents likely to be available to victim applicants in the DRC in practice, and not only official documents. Information is also included about difficulties that applicants might encounter in obtaining or providing the documents discussed.
