DA travels to Malaysia to give human rights training

Brauchler addressed gender violence, human trafficking and use of force

Posted

George Brauchler, 18th Judicial District attorney, recently traveled to Malaysia on behalf of the Department of Defense to conduct human rights-related training.

Brauchler, a colonel and military judge in the Colorado Army National Guard, worked with members of the Malaysian navy, teaching courses on use of force, gender violence and human trafficking under the auspices of the Defense Institute of International Legal Studies.

The defense institute is the “lead DoD security cooperation resource for global legal engagement and capacity-building with international defense sector officials” and regularly works with militaries around the globe, according to a news release.

“I have spent a career doing nearly everything in military law, and I was happy be able to work with our partner countries on the important work of upholding the law of armed conflict,” Brauchler said in the release. “The United States is a global democracy leader, and we are actively engaged in working with our military partners to uphold international standards.”

Brauchler's commitment to service extends beyond his actions and includes the district attorney's office, the release said. When hiring, he actively seeks qualified applicants with military service. The office supports its prosecutors while they deploy to Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait and elsewhere, and two of its prosecutors are on active duty, the release said.

“As a veteran of the Iraq war, and as member of the Colorado Army National Guard, I know well the value these women and men bring to any organization, especially one dedicated to upholding our Constitution and seeking justice," Brauchler said.

In 2017, the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office was awarded the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the first DA's office to be honored in the 22-year history of the award.

“I am proud to have created the most veteran- and military-friendly office in government,” Brauchler said in the release.
