Relatives, torture victims give first public testimony to Tunisia truth commission | Reuters

By Tarek Amara | TUNIS TUNIS Tunisian television broadcast testimony from victims of decades of authoritarian rule on Thursday, a first chance for the public to see the workings of a Truth and Dignity Commission intended to help cement democracy after the Arab Spring revolution of 2011.Among the first to testify in a highly charged live session were mothers of protesters slain during the uprising, and victims of police brutality under the regime of ousted leader Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.The commission is investigating crimes and abuses dating back to 1955, a year before Tunisia gained independence from France, in an effort to come to terms with its past. In the last three years, it has received more than 62,000 submissions and gathered testimony behind closed doors from about 11,000 people. "The goal is not revenge," said its head, Sihem Bensedrine, a former activist who was harassed by the authorities under Ben Ali."We need to expose these testimonies for history," she said. #United States #Islam #France #science #Europe #Police

Kerala gangrape: High time to sensitise cops on dealing with sexual crime victims

The law enforcement and justice machinery needs to be sensitive about the brutality it inflicts on not just the victim's body but also her mind and psyche. So, the need is to inspire confidence that the victim's dignity will not be dented because she takes the courage to speak out. #India #Kerala #Crime #Rape #Police #Mammootty #CPM #Kerala Police #molestation #Communist Party of India Marxist #Women Rights #Sexual crimes against women #Indian law enforcement agencies #Rape Videos #Kasaba #Bhagya Lakshmi #Jayanathan

Myanmar police to arm, train non-Muslims in conflict-torn region | Reuters

By Wa Lone and Simon Lewis | SITTWE, Myanmar SITTWE, Myanmar Myanmar police will begin arming and training non-Muslim residents in the troubled north of Rakhine State, where officials say militants from the Rohingya Muslim group pose a growing security threat, police and civilian officials said.Human rights monitors and a leader of the mostly stateless Rohingya told Reuters the move risked sharpening intercommunal tensions in a region that has just seen its bloodiest month since 2012, when hundreds of people were killed in clashes between Muslims and ethnic Rakhine Buddhists.Soldiers have poured into the Maungdaw area along Myanmar's frontier with Bangladesh, responding to coordinated attacks on three border posts on Oct. 9 in which nine police officers were killed. Security forces have locked down the area - shutting out aid workers and independent observers - and conducted sweeps of villages in Maungdaw, where the vast majority are Rohingyas #Middle East #Government #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Police #Entertainment
