In December 2018, Denmark contributes DKK 1.5 million (slightly over €200,000) to the Trust Fund for Victims (TFV) at the International Criminal Court (ICC), earmarked to support victim survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV).
“We believe the Trust Fund for Victims is doing excellent work in supporting victims of sexual and gender based crimes within the jurisdiction of the ICC. Denmark is proud to focus its support to rebuild the lives of victims of such heinous crimes, and is committed to bring reparative justice to victims within the Rome Statute system. We hope other States Parties will join us in supporting the valuable work of the TFV.”
H.E. Jens-Otto Horslund, Ambassador of Denmark in the Netherlands
Denmark was amongst first States Parties to respond to the TFV donor appeal in 2008 to support victim survivors of sexual and gender based violence. I am grateful to see Denmark continue to support the Trust Fund, and through it numerous survivors as they seek justice and a better future.”
Baroness Arminka Helić, Board member, Trust Fund for Victims
In 2002, the TFV was established under the Rome Statute, in order to support recovery and resilience for victims of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression.
The mission of the TFV is to respond to the harm resulting from the crimes within the jurisdiction of the ICC by ensuring the rights of victims and their families through the provision of reparation and assistance programmes for them to return to a dignified and contributory life within their communities.
