Yazidis and other ISIS victims want justice in a court of law, and they deserve nothing less. I hope that the Iraqi government's letter will mark the beginning of the end of impunity for genocide and other crimes that ISIS is committing in Iraq and around the world.feedback

Amal Clooney quotes

Mar 10 2017 - United Nations

We do want to see an investigation take place with the cooperation of the Iraqi authorities. But ultimately if that support is not forthcoming in terms of real action, then the U.N. has to think of other ways in which to achieve accountability. All these options are on the table. They must be seriously considered, because victims like Nadia can't expect to wait forever.feedback

Mar 10 2017 - United Nations

I am speaking to you, the Iraqi government, and to you, U.N. member states, when I ask: Why? Why has nothing been done? Don't let ISIS get away with genocide.feedback

Mar 10 2017

Killing ISIS on the battlefield is not enough. We must kill the idea behind ISIS by exposing the brutality and bringing individual criminals to justice.feedback

Mar 09 2017

[I'm] going to ask [UN representatives]: 'Are the crimes not serious enough for you to investigate?' Well, that can't be it. This is genocide. Do you think there is no evidence for you to collect?' That's not right either. There are mass graves whose locations are known. You can start there and there's plenty of other evidence to collect.feedback

Mar 09 2017 - Mosul conflict

There are mass graves that are being discovered; just a few days ago in Mosul a huge mass grave that's thought to have 4,000 bodies in it was discovered and there's other types of evidence as well.feedback

Mar 09 2017 - United Nations

It's been the most harrowing testimony I've ever heard. We know that it's genocide. The U.N. has said so. ISIS is actually a big bureaucracy, believe it or not, and they are leaving behind documents. You need to collect DNA, you need to collect phone records. And none of that is being done at the moment.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Iraq

If you don't have a good case and you don't have a good message, then shining a light on it is not going to get you very far.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Yazidis

There's lots of my work that takes place behind closed doors that is not ever seen. I think if there are more people who now understand what's happening about the Yazidis and ISIS, and if there can be some action that results from that, that can help those clients, then I think that it's a really good thing to give that case the extra publicity that it may get.feedback

Sep 19 2016 - Yazidis

I think the international community should be ashamed that they haven't done more for the Yazidis.feedback

Sep 19 2016 - Yazidis

It's not going to be easy, but we're working on multiple fronts.feedback
