[#StayAtHome: Gone Too Soon: Deaths in Custody]

[#StayAtHome: Gone Too Soon: Deaths in Custody]

As the death of George Floyd continues to spark protests and conversations about police power, we reflect on the issue of deaths in police custody here in Malaysia. Are there issues of racism among our police? What has been the police’s reaction and procedure when a death occurs in their custody? Is accountability ensured, or evaded?

Join us for a discussion with Mr M. Visvanathan, human rights lawyer and founder of Eliminating Deaths And Abuse In Custody Together – EDICT, as we address the role of police accountability in ensuring the rule of law and democracy, the obstacles faced in protecting the rights of detainees, and the reform and action we can push for as young aspiring lawyers.

Details of the event are as follows:
Date: Saturday, 25 July 2020
Time: 9.00p.m. MYT/ 2.00p.m. UKT
