The eyeWitness to Atrocities app for Android, designed and developed by Compsoft on behalf of the International Bar Association (IBA), has been the subject of recent BBC News and CNN reports. The app allows users to take photos and videos of human rights abuses and upload them with device metadata, ensuring they’re admissible as evidence.
According to Wendy Betts, eyeWitness Project Director: “The IBA is excited to launch the eyeWitness to Atrocities app to provide citizens a tool to help bring to justice individuals who commit international atrocity crimes. Compsoft’s skill, innovation, and dedication to the project were integral to transforming the idea behind the app into reality.”
