Special Measures Series Webinar – Panel Finale

2 September @ 3.00 pm - 5.00 pm +13

Dear PILON members and friends

I am pleased to invite you to the final event in the PILON Sexual and Gender Based Violence Working Group Special Measures Series titled “Panel Finale”. This hour-long panel discussion will take place next Friday (2 September 2022) at 3PM Apia time / 12PM Port Moresby time / 1PM Port Vila & Honiara time.

 

In our previous webinar we heard from the judiciary. It is now time to consider the role of witness support officer, both within and beyond the courtroom. Our panel will provide insights from prosecutors, witness support officers as well as NGOs from Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.

 

We look forward to seeing you there and hearing your questions – you can submit questions through the registration link below. During the discussion, we will explore audience questions, as well as positive experiences, key challenges and thoughts on the future of witness support in the Pacific.
