Physicians for Human Rights Offers Training in Crime Scene Documentation
Date:11/9/2009

hey will learn the essentials of digital forensic photography, basic sketching techniques and note taking. There will also be a section on the photo documentation of evidence of alleged torture and abuse. Those who successfully complete the program will be qualified to document evidence of human rights violations in a manner which will be admissible in court.

“There are many small things that make up an effective investigation and I think it’s very easy for the layman to miss out on some of the steps. This course fills in all of those small pieces, which together, makes an effective investigation,” said James Welsh, Amnesty International, UK.

Physicians for Human Rights is a pioneer in the use of forensic science to investigate human rights violations and is uniquely positioned to help improve the quality of evidence documented at a crime scene. Since the 1980’s PHR has mobilized forensic scientists and other experts worldwide to respond to inquiries by governments, organizations, families and individuals.
                            
“The course helped me understand how and why we lost cases due to weak evidence collection and reporting,” said Jusu Yarmah, ICTY Investigator, Sierra Leone.
                                        
“It was an excellent training exercise and a great opportunity to exchange information with colleagues from around the world,” said John Somogyi, Archeologist, Canada.
