BAGAIMANA EDICT DITUBUHKAN?

WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF EDICT?

Bermula dengan idea Encik M.Visvanathan yang sebelum ini banyak mengambil kes-kes mengenai kematian dalam tahanan, beliau menyarankan agar ada satu kumpulan yang fokus dalam memperjuangkan isu kematian dalam tahanan. Sebelum ini ada juga beberapa NGO yang membawa kes-kes kematian dalam tahanan namun kes itu tidak dapat diberi fokus sepenuhnya memandangkan mereka mempunyai banyak kes-kes lain selain daripada kematian dalam tahanan. Maka, pada tahun 2017, Visva telah mengumpulkan beberapa orang peguam, aktivis dan wartawan untuk berbincang mengenai penubuhan kumpulan ini. Hasil dari perbincangan itu, kumpulan ini diberi nama EDICT iaitu hasil singkatan daripada Eliminating Deaths & Abuse In Custody Together (EDICT).


WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF EDICT?

Though common, most deaths in custody are avoidable. They are frequent because official directives or confidentiality codes result in cover-ups, families are unable to pursue legal actions, state legal advisors deny liability, the media seldom report the hearings, there is no public pressure to make things right, etc. To overcome these challenges, a group of friends led by lawyer M Visvanathan formed EDICT, “Eliminating Death and Abuse in Custody Together” in November 2017. EDICT’s principal activities are representation of victims and their families who pursue justice, ensuring legal processes relating to deaths in custody are respected, and pressing for reforms.
