Looking for reasons to support TRIAL in its fight against impunity?
Here are a few taken from recents weeks:
1. We briefed the UN #SecurityCouncil on the question of #justice and reconciliation in #Bosnia and Herzegovina (5 Nov.) trialinternational.org/latest-post/tr…
2. Erwin #Sperisen, former chief of police of #Guatemala, will have to serve his 15-year prison sentence for complicity in 7 cases of #extrajudicialexecutions of prisoners. So has decided #Switzerland’s Supreme Court (26 Nov.)
3. We won a landmark case before the UN Committee Against #Torture, which condemned #Bosnia for failing to fulfil its obligations toward survivors of sexual violence. Bosnia now needs to set up an effective national #reparations scheme #CRSV (30 Aug.)
4. On the #CorporateAccountability front and the role of rogue businessmen in the plundering of natural ressources, a huge step has been taken in Switzerland with the opening of a #WarCrimes investigation (12 Dec.) trialinternational.org/latest-post/pi…
5. #Nepal: we won another landmark case, this time from the UN #HumanRights Committee, in relation to an indigenous girl victim of #rape, #torture and forced labor #CRSV (20 May): trialinternational.org/latest-post/la…
6. #DRC: we've been part of 21 trials, defending 1,400+ victims & working towards conviction of dozens of perpetrators. Recently, 3 militiamen were sentenced to heavy prison terms for #CrimesAgainstHumanity, with 100s victims getting reparations (19 Nov) trialinternational.org/latest-post/sh…
7. In The #Gambia, along with our partner @hrw, we reported on accusations of rape and sexual assault against ex-President Yahya #Jammeh, while he was in office (26 June). #Jammeh2Justice
@hrw 8. #Bosnia: Radomir Šušnjar was found guilty for the murder of 57 Bosniaks in Višegrad, a town in the east of Serbian Republic of Bosnia, in 1992 (30 Oct.). We had previously tracked him down in France where he had relocated.
@hrw 9. TRIAL, @osjustice and @syrian_archive urged #German and #Belgian prosecutors to shed light on exports to #Syria of chemical components that can be used in the making of #sarin gas (3 June).
@hrw @osjustice @syrian_archive 10. In #DRC, a member of the Armed Forces was sentenced to 14 years in prison and will have to pay 15’000 USD in compensation for the rape of a 13 year-old girl (12 Nov.). And we have several other trials and investigations currently underway there.
