Justice Verma, former Chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission of India
The APF has paid tribute to the life and contribution of Justice Shri J.S. Verma, former Chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission of India, who passed away on 22 April 2013.
The former Chief Justice of India led the Commission from November 1999 to January 2003. During this period, Justice Verma also chaired the International Coordinating Committee of National Human Rights Institutions.
He also oversaw the Commission's investigations into the communal violence that erupted in Gujarat in 2002, giving a voice to those who had suffered and holding State authorities accountable for acts of omission and commission.
After completing his term at the Commission, Justice Verma continued to play an active role in public life, including becoming the first head of India's national broadcasting standards authority.
Earlier this year, following the fatal gang rape of a woman in New Delhi, he was asked to lead the government panel to examine the Indian criminal justice system's treatment of violence against women.
He completed his review within a month. His 630-page report included many far reaching recommendations to bolster the protection afforded to women and stricter penalties for crimes against women. Many of these recommendations have already become law.
"Justice Verma brought integrity, intelligence and compassion in equal measure to all his work," said Kieren Fitzpatrick, Director of the APF secretariat.
