No matter if they're high British military officials, a Colombian embassador in Austria or the Manager of the Nestlé company; no matter if it’s torture, rape or "disappearences"; no matter if it's in Iraq, Columbia or Sri Lanka – those responsible for human rights abuses must be held accountable. In the past months ECCHR has initiated, lead and supported legal measures on this cases and issues. The annual report 2013 gives an overview of the aims, strategies and work of ECCHR.
The photographs in this annual report were taken by Chilean photographer José Giribás and displayed at the ECCHR offices during 2013. Giribás took the pictures in the 80s in Chile to reflect the resistence against the regime of Augusto Pinochet.
