The Trust Fund for Victims (TFV) at the International Criminal Court (ICC) takes great pleasure in announcing that in 2021, the Government of Germany has pledged a voluntary contribution of €110,000 to the TFV this year. This contribution demonstrates Germany’s strong support and commitment to the reparative justice function of the Rome Statute.

Speaking on Germany’s unwavering support to the Rome Statute and the Trust Fund, H.E. Mr. Dr. Cyrill Jean Nunn, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany in the Netherlands said, “Germany is very happy to contribute €110,000 to the important work of the Trust Fund of Victims for the benefits of the victims of mass atrocities and their families.“
TFV Executive Director Pieter de Baan thanked the Government of Germany saying “Germany’s contribution to the TFV is sending a strong signal of support to the Trust Fund’s mandate, in particular in reparations proceedings. Our sincere appreciation goes to Germany for its continued commitment to enable victims overcome their harm from international crimes, and to achieve dignity and resilience.”
