Report Human Rights Abuses

You can—and should—report human rights abuses. Even if they are not prosecuted, publicity or the prospect of an investigation can have a restraining effect on the perpetrators. 

  1. List the specific Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that have been violated. 
  2. State the facts, as far as possible in chronological order.
  3. Include the date, time and place of the incident(s); name and position of the perpetrator(s); place of detention if applicable; names and addresses of any witnesses and any other important details.
