Wartime Sexual Violence in El Salvador: The El Mozote Case

12:00PM - 01:30PM Tenley Campus - Yuma
 The Due Process of Law Foundation (DPLF), along with Claudia Martin, Co-director for the Academy on Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law, and Susana S├íCouto, director of the War Crimes Research office, presented an amicus curiae before the San Francisco Court of First Instance in Mozote, El Salvador, on Friday, August 24, where 18 military commanders were accused of having participated in the massacre of El Mozote and neighboring areas in December of 1981. The purpose of the brief was to develop arguments that could be used to effectively investigate the sexual crimes committed in the case. This conference will gather a group of panelists to further discuss the above. 

The event will take place on March 18, at 12:00 pm, in Room Y400. Please RSVP via email at hracademy@wcl.american.edu. A light lunch will be provided.
