A special ceremony to pay tribute to the victims of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes will be held at the International Criminal Court in The Hague on April 22 as part of the first meeting of the Board of Directors of the Victims Trust Fund of the ICC. (Further event information is forthcoming.
