What we do


The Damocles Network :


Conducts on-the-spot investigations of abuses to establish the facts and if necessary expose the failings of the police and ineffectiveness of the legal system.



Helps victims to get the criminals arrested and tried in their own countries or (if local authorities do not wish to establish the truth) before international courts.



Gathers information about the instigators and perpetrators of the crimes and their movements so the appropriate legal steps can be taken when circumstances allow.



Conducts publicity campaigns about the need to fight impunity and arbitrary behaviour.



Joins the worldwide battle against corruption and money-laundering so that the property of these criminals can be seized and their victims compensated.



With the financial support of the European Commission and the Soros Foundation
