About the CCCA
The CCCA is in the process of being incorporated as a Stichting (Foundation) in The Netherlands by Reinhold Gallmetzer, Appeals Counsel at the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court.
The CCCA’s Board of Directors and Advisory Board will include professionals from national and international law enforcement organizations and networks, as well as experts in the areas of forensic science, forestry crimes, carbon trading and information technology. Their identities will be revealed shortly.
The CCCA has been endorsed by INTERPOL, the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court and the European Environmental Crimes Network, who have expressed their intention to cooperate with the CCCA. The CCCA also partners with Benetech, a Silicon Valley-based nonprofit technology company that builds software and data solutions for human rights defenders around the world.
The CCCA is independent, in the sense that it decides autonomously on which areas and specific fact patterns to focus. In particular, this decision will not be unduly influenced by any donors. Additionally, the CCCA will be able to control its analysis and information sharing.
