USAID Supports Program to Enhance the Capabilities of Human Rights Investigators
USAID supported the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) of the Philippines to build the capacity of its 133 investigators, medical doctors, and lawyers to produce accurate investigation reports that can withstand prosecutorial and judicial scrutiny.
From April 24 to May 11, 2009, four sessions of rigorous trainings on the application of forensic sciences in investigating human rights abuses were conducted in Pampanga, Cebu, and Cagayan de Oro. Dr. Jose Pablo Baraybar, an expert forensic anthropologist from the Equipo Peruano de Antropologia Forense (EPAF or the Peruvian Forensic Anthropology Team), led the lectures and field work on documenting and analyzing simulated incidents of extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances.
