Killings/ Mass Atrocities | Death Investigations

PHR's medical experts use forensic science to investigate both mass graves and individual deaths.

PHR is regularly called upon to conduct and participate in death investigations around the world. When lawyer Sergei Magnitsky died under suspicious circumstances in a Russian prison, we were instrumental in identifying irregularities and gaps in the medical investigations carried out by the Russian authorities into the cause and manner of his death. We also contributed forensic analysis to the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Reuters investigation into extrajudicial killings in the Philippines’ war on drugs. In all cases, our network of medical and forensic experts bring their skills to bear to seek justice for the victims and their families.
