On Friday, 28 March, 2014, International Bridges of Justice hosted its first Tweet Chat, "Talk to the Experts." With the launch date of the JusticeMakers' competition approaching, we invited previous JusticeMakers winners to join and to inspire others on how to stop investigative torture. IBJ would like to thank Harshi Perera (@Sathjana) and Robert Kibaya (@rob_kib) for participating as the experts for this TweetChat. We would also like to thank everyone who joined in. We were able to get participants from Switzerland, India, Uganda, Sri Lanka, etc. who are all determined to fight for justice and stop the use of investigative torture.
