Eight ICRC forensic advisors from across Asia recently attended a week-long workshop at the VIFM on the Principles and Practice of a Death Investigation system.
The course was led by Professor Stephen Cordner and involved many of the VIFM’s professional staff. ICRC Forensic Advisors undertake key roles in helping authorities in
their host nations to understand and deliver on their responsibilities under international humanitarian law to the dead victims of armed conflict; and in building local technical
capacity for this.
Thank you to all staff who assisted in training and who spent time making everyone feel welcome during the week.
