Lawyers under threat

    Everywhere in the world lawyers and independent judges are more and more under threat. Death squads in the Philippines killed several lawyers, independent judges in Pakistan are under attack, in Turkey lawyers are criminalised etc.

    IADL is organizing solidarity with progressive lawyers everywhere in the world that are subject to pressure, intimidation and persecution.
