DISSECT is very pleased to report that members of the team Ruwadzano Patience Makumbe and Edward Kahuthia Murimi have co-authored a blog post which Opinio Juris has published as part of its Symposium on Fairness, Equality, and Diversity in Open Source Investigations.
Their post problematises the use of digital open source evidence and interrogates the appropriateness for fact-finders in the Tigray conflict to have applied the ‘reasonable grounds to believe’ standard of proof. It concludes with recommendations as to what should be the best practice on the issues raised.
