Furkat Ganiev: "It is impossible to eradicate the problem of torture without talking about its causes"

It is not possible to eradicate the problem without talking about its causes - it is a weak evidence base in the case, the lack of real technical possibilities to acquire alternative evidence based on science and technology, and in some cases incompetence of persons connected with the investigation and forensic examination."   

Director of the Republican Center for Forensic Medicine in Sughd region, Furkat Ganiev
