New York-Media Center and Regional Communication, which is affiliated with British government and located in Dubai, has issued a statement saying that Britain will launch an international campaign Monday to bring ISIS extremists to justice.

This day coincides with the first day of the United Nations General Assembly meetings in New York.

The global campaign will seek justice for all ISIS victims, bringing the international community together in defiance of ISIS efforts to stoke division and hate.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Human Rights Lawyer Amal Clooney will be joined by Iraqi foreign minister, the Belgian foreign minister, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, and ISIS Survivor and Human Rights Activist Nadia Murad Basee Taha.

Johnson said: “We have united to defeat ISIS, now we must unite to bring them to justice,” adding that, “that needs to include looking at ways for the U.N. to support the vital task of gathering evidence about their abhorrent crimes.”

Britain is a member in the campaign launched by the United States against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
