What code must be cracked? The code of investigative torture.
In criminal justice systems around the world, it's sometimes easier to force a confession from those accused of a crime than to give them a fair trial. Many are thrown into overcrowded prisons where their chances of receiving a solid defense are slim.
International Bridges to Justice (IBJ) has cracked this code. By training and appointing defense lawyers for the accused who barely know their rights, IBJ helps to ensure that governments observe due process of the law. Reaching into 37 countries with in-depth programs in China, Cambodia, India, Zimbabwe, Rwanda and Burundi, IBJ regularly educates police officials, judges, lawyers, and citizens on the rights of the accused.
