War crimes, genocide, crimes against humanity, torture and enforced disappearances: international crimes and offenses of the most serious sort. The Dutch government believes that such crimes must be investigated and the guilty parties brought to justice. The Dutch Police's International Crimes Team, in partnership with the National Public Prosecutors' Office, carries out criminal investigations into international crimes committed by or against Dutch nationals or persons in the Netherlands.
