ERBIL — The Genocide Watch Organization is investigating the massacre of the Yezidi people in Sinjar at the hand of the Islamic State (IS), conducting interviews with the freed Yezidi women and monitoring the documents, an official said.
Darman Khatary, the deputy chief for Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG)'s Office of Abducted [Yezidi people] in Duhok province, said on Sunday that a delegation from the Genocide Watch Organization visited their office.
Speaking to BasNews, Khatary indicated that his office presented the delegation with the accumulated documents related to the massacre of the Yezidi people.
The delegation also met with a number of Yezidi women who were freed from the Islamic State (IS) grip and documented the interviews.
On Friday the delegation arrived in Erbil International Airport and is destined to visit the locations where IS committed crimes against humanity.
An official from the organization in Duhok province told BasNews that they will become the eyewitnesses to Sinjar massacre in the international community.
She criticized The International Criminal Court in Hague for not shouldering its responsibility in some cases such as the many dossiers in Africa.
The official added that the main purpose of their delegation's visit to Kurdistan Region is to investigate and support the case of Yezidi people's massacre and present it at an international court.
With IS militants' storming in Sinjar, Nineveh province, in mid-August 2014, hundreds of Yezidi people were killed and thousands were abducted.
The abducted people were mainly young women and girls who were used as sex-slaves by the IS militants.
