Great success for the discussion evening 'Nestlé in Pakistan: The Baby Formula Scandal exposed' during the International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights 2015

On February 27, 2015, during the International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights (FIFDH) held in Geneva, the movie Tigers was screened within the framework of a discussion evening entitled 'Nestlé in Pakistan : The Baby Formula Scandal exposed' organized in collaboration with IBFAN-GIFA.
The feature film Tigers is based on the true story of a former Nestlé salesman, Mr Syed Aamir Raza. He blew the whistle after the shock realization of the impact of his employer’s activities on children’s health. That decision had terrible consequences on its private life and he had then to seek asylum in Canada, where he spent long years away from its family before they could finally be reunited in exile.
Mr Aamir Raza attended the screening and took part in the debate that followed, together with Ms Yasmine Motarjemi (former corporate food safety manager at Nestlé and whistleblower) and Mr Mike Brady (Baby Milk Action/IBFAN UK). The co-author of the movie, Mr Andy Paterson, was also present and answered some questions about the preparation of the movie. The debate was moderated by Mr Alain Maillard, chief editor for Edito, and led to a very fruitful discussion with the public.
