In July of 2017, ICCA was invited to lead a round of training for a group of Prosecutors attached to the Nigerian Federal Serious Case Group in Abuja.
The invitation had originally emanated from the Criminal Justice Adviser at the High Commission who was engaged in Capacity building programmes. These Prosecutors faced challenges faced by by as Boko Haram and other terrorist groups were active on an almost daily basis there.
The training team was led by Peter Birkett QC with Sarah Clarke QC, Simeon Evans and Sarah Whitehouse QC accompanying. The case study used on the programme allowed delegates to discuss general Advocacy challenges, as well as to consider how evidence could be collated and prepared; including the presentation of electronic and diagrammatic evidence.
