Corruption has an awful impact on society. FHRAC is the leading anti-corruption Forum in India, with its focus on preventing, exposing and responding to corrupt conduct and corruption risks in public and all levels of government. Think you are safe from the Foreign Corrupt. FHRAC Forum on Anti-Corruption delivers advanced and practical insights on the latest anti-bribery and corruption enforcement initiatives, global anti-corruption compliance strategies and benchmarking opportunities for the anti-corruption compliance community. We believe as a citizen we are all equally responsible for the corruption to be present in the society; either with their silence or by indulging in corruption either to avoid their job or to gain benefits for their personal gratification.

      FHRAC specialized agency responsible for collection of intelligence with regard to corruption, maintaining liaison with the various Departments of Government through their Vigilance Officers, enquiries into complaints about bribery and corruption, investigation and prosecution of offences pertaining to bribery and corruption and tasks relating to preventive aspects of corruption.

Across India, individuals face grave threats of having their human rights violated and abused. We work to stand up for their rights and to ensure that justice and accountability are delivered. We work for the rights of Individuals at Risk by lobbying state authorities, advocating with lawmakers, the police, and other authorities, and through public campaigns. We create case files for individual persons, groups of people, or entire communities, and mobilize our supporters to take action on their behalf.

Who are Individuals at Risk?

The term Individuals at Risk cover a range of people, including prisoners of conscience, persons subjected to enforced disappearances, prisoners facing torture or other ill-treatment, individuals facing unfair trials or the death penalty, communities threatened by forced evictions, human rights defenders attacked for their work and NGOs prevented from carrying out legitimate activities.

Glossary of TermsPrisoners of Conscience:

Individuals who have not used or advocated violence, and have been detained solely because of their political, religious, or other beliefs; or, ethnic or national origin, gender or sexual orientation, or any other status.

Unfair Trials:

Individuals who have been detained and subjected to a legal process that does not meet international fair trial standards, including not allowing the accused information on the charges, access to legal representation of their choosing, the right to be present at their own trial, and the right to be tried before an independent and impartial court.

Human Rights Defenders:

Individuals who promote and protect their own rights and the rights of others by non-violent means.Enforced Disappearances: When there are reasonable grounds to believe that an individual has been apprehended by government authorities, yet the government refuses to acknowledge this or conceals information about the individual, thus placing the individual outside the protection of the law.

Torture and Other Ill-treatment:

Any act conducted or authorized in an official capacity that is intended to inflict severe pain or suffering, either physical or mental, on an individual. The purpose is often to gain information, obtain a confession, punish, intimidate, or threaten.

Death Penalty:

State-imposed death as punishment for a crime, following a judicial process in a recognized court. Individuals on death row face the ultimate cruel, inhumane, and degrading punishment given by governments. We oppose the death penalty in all cases.
