December 23, 2016
Tuesday 24 January 2017 is the “Day of the endangered lawyer”. This year, the annual events focus on lawyers in China. In July 2015, a unprecedented and seemingly well-coordinated detention campaign of a large number of human rights lawyers and defenders in China took place. More than 300 human rights lawyers, legal assistants, and rights activists were targeted during the nationwide sweep.
We cordially invite you to participate in the events we organize on the Day of the Endangered Lawyer in The Hague!
