The Case Matrix Network (CMN)’s primary focus in the Central African Republic (CAR) has been on the sexual and gender-based violence crimes that were allegedly perpetrated by all armed groups that were party to the conflict between 2002 and 2013. The CMN has been working on capacity-development of investigative magistrates and police/judicial investigators of the Special Criminal Court (CPS), and the specialised Mixed Unit for Rapid Intervention and Suppression of Sexual Violence Against Women and Children (UMIRR). We have also developed a CAR Supplement to the International Protocol on the Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict with the aim of contributing towards capacity-development of institutions and individuals working on sexual and gender-based violence in CAR.
