E4: How to Build a Case

The trial moves on, and piece by piece, the prosecutors are building their case. Internal reports, security logs, meetings between the company and representatives from the Sudanese government, as well as reports from human rights organizations, are being used as pieces in the prosecutor’s big puzzle.

To help us navigate through all the different reports, we invited Mikael Ekman, Senior Legal Adviser at the organization Civil Rights Defenders, who has been following the trial on a day-to-day basis. Listen to his description of the courtroom and what he thinks are the most striking pieces of evidence so far.

Civil Rights Defenders’ reports from the trial can be found here.
