German development agency GIZ is funding this unique video-documentary while the Punjab Prosecution Services department is providing with the technical support.
The theme of the video, Director Ms Ekaterina explained to the media, revolves around a murder case in which the prosecutor, despite all challenges, successfully uses all available tools within the system i.e. forensic evidence, witnesses, police officials inter alia to convict the perpetrators. Ekaterina said that to lend visual strength to the video, real life shots from crime scenes, Police Station, Prosecutors’ Office and Court Room will be included.
