For those interested in criminal justice and torture there is going to be an Independent People’s Tribunal on Torture, Extra-Judicial Killings, and Forced Disappearances this weekend (Feb. 9th and 10th from 9:00 to 6:00 and 9:00 to 4:30) at JNU (Life Science Auditorium) in Delhi. There are about 90 speakers coming from most of the states in India including a lot of victims or family members of victims, such as Dr. Ilena Sen, the wife of Dr. Binayek Sen the imprisoned PUCL Chattisgarh activist. I can’t seem to find the schedule online, but happy to forward the soft copy I have to those interested.
