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, and cooperates with, INTERPOL, the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court and the European Environmental Crimes Network. The CCCA further partners with the Human Rights Center - UC Berkeley School of Law, and the Human Rights Centre - Essex University to support the CCCA's open source investigation; the American Association for the Advancement of Science, to produce scientific evidence and analysis; Benetech, a Silicon Valley-based non-profit technology company, to develop and implement secure and efficient data solutions for the CCCA; and the European Climate Foundation, to fundraise.
The CCCA is independent, in the sense that it decides autonomously on which areas and specific fact patterns to focus. Additionally, the CCCA will be able to control its analysis and information sharing.
