Banglar Manabadhikar Suraksha Mancha (MASUM) is an initiation of some human
rights defenders in camaraderie. MASUM from its inception is struggling for
protection, set up and extension of rights of the citizen of India.
MASUM started its journey with addressing custodial torture and its
subsequent ramification, further extended its activities to address other
forms of human rights violations. MASUM works in close association with
domestic Human Rights Institutions, international human rights bodies like
Amnesty International, World Organisation against Torture (OMCT), Human
rights Watch (HRW), Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) and United Nations
agencies. MASUM is also holding a programme on the aegis of United Nations
Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture (UNVFVT) for medical, social and
psychological benefits for victims of torture.
This year we intended to observe ‘anti torture day’ by holding a two day
residential course on fact findings of torture and related legalities. We
have designed the course as follows:-
*Day I –Definition of “Torture” and Basics of credible fact finding*
*Day II – Domestic laws related to torture and United Nations instruments
A course fee of *Rs. 1000/-* has been fixed this include your stay and food
for two days with stationeries and course material. Leading protagonists
against practice of torture and legal experts will conduct the course. At
the end of the course certificate will be issued to all the participants.
For further detail please contact our office.
You are requested to register your name *before 30th of May 2012*.
