Welcome to eyeWitness and its application in the Maritime Environment
Human Rights at Sea in Partnership with the International Bar Association & the eyeWitness Project brings a new tool in the fight to bring perpetrators of human rights abuses to justice.
eyeWitness was designed for recording human rights atrocities but the concept has now been adapted to do the same at sea.
What does this mean?
In short, anyone who has downloaded the App on a smartphone can now record abuses that would otherwise have gone unrecorded and unreported at sea.
Human Rights at Sea believes this technology could be a game-changer in the pursuance of justice for victims at sea.
The footage is Geo-located to pin-point the event in time and space.
The evidential chain from taking of the footage, through submission and receipt by the expert reviewing team in London has been assured through the App’s build and field testing.
Download the App for Android devices
The initial release of the app was designed for Android devices, because Android has the largest share of the market for global sales.
eyeWitness is currently exploring options for making the app available on other platforms.
