We are very much thankful to DIG training, DIG Head Quarter and principals of Police Academies who have given us an opportunity to train police on human rights, gender, modern methods of investigation and other areas of law.  We appreciate the staff of the colleges for their best co-ordination.

Below are some reflection received from police officers rained by us.

 

Causes for failure of police to investigate the crimes and reach the real culprits

  1. No transport
  2. No fuel
  3. Too much work on police/Extra duty hours/No proper sleep
  4. No  facilities (health etc)
  5. No trainings on modern ways of investigations
  6. No cost of investigation
  7. Lethargic attitude of higher police officers in passing orders on police papers
  8. Citizens are scared to be witnesses 
  9. Citizens avoid to share infomraion about crimes occured or going to happen
  10. 14 days – short period for investigation
  11. No modern tools, methods, facilities, training available for the staff

 Following two sentences of two participants really touched us. 

We are not criminals in uniforms, we are victims and demand justice

Please do not hate us, help us to improve to be able to get your love. 

A complete report will be kept on the website http://www.rightsnowpk.org soon.

They were deprived of their wages, salaries, and prevented to go to city for even medical treatment. According to them, two armed guards were deployed by the owners who were keeping check on the detainees.

Despite claims by the countries that slavery does not exist different forms of slaveries still survive and supported by the system and state institutions. However, not permitted by the law.

RightsNow Executive Director Ali Palh says bonded labor at farms, brick kilns and child labor are worse forms of slaveries. Neither national law nor international allows it. It exist and survives.

He quotes the definition of forced labor that “All work or service which is exacted from any person under the menace of any penalty and that penalty can be in the form of physical violence, economical loss etc.
