Watch a short video interview with Prof. Duarte Nuno Vieira, one of the members of the IRCT Forensic Expert Group, and learn about the role and challenges faced by forensic experts in the investigation and documentation of torture.

The Forensic Expert Group was established by the IRCT in partnership with the Department of Forensic Medicine, University of Copenhagen. The group will serve as a reference point, providing advice on select individual cases and participating in targeted missions to examine torture survivors and assist with bringing cases to court. The experts will also help to advocate for the increased use of medical evidence and continue to build a body of knowledge on the subject of forensic documentation of torture.

This short video interview was conducted by Susanne Kjær, Project Manager at the IRCT, during a European Science Foundation (ESF) conference on "Investigation and Prevention of Torture and Death in Custody" in Linköping, Sweden, from 3 - 7 May 2010.
