Podcast: Nooshin Erfani-Ghadimi discusses the WJP Torture Symposium


On the Wits Justice podcast this week we’ll be talking about the prevalence of  torture in South Africa.

The Wits Justice Project is holding a Symposium on the Prevention of Torture next week. In preparation WJP Project Coordinator Nooshin Erfani-Ghadimi came into the studio to discuss the symposium, why South Africa has taken 13 years to make torture a crime (when before the torturer would only be charged with Grievous Bodily Harm) and how we can get more people to speak out about this extreme kind of violence.

Produced and presented by Paul McNally for The Wits Justice Project.

Podcast released: 22 August 2014.
