Films examine violence suffered in detention in the Netherlands
On any given day, over 3,000 people who have not been convicted of any crime are held in pre-trial detention in the Netherlands.
Some will suffer violence while in detention and awaiting their trial.
As part of a project that Redress is conducting with Fair Trials and other partners, we have produced several films recalling the experiences of several detainees who suffered violence while being held in pre-trial or immigration detention. These films are part of a project that seeks to provide access to justice for victims of violent crimes suffered while in detention in the Netherlands.
Our first film traces the story of a man who lost his life in pre-trial detention.
