Lawyers for Lawyers Award for Jorge Molano!


Jorge Molano, a Colombian Human Rights Lawyer and member of DHColombia, is selected to receive the Lawyers for Lawyers Award 2015. An expert jury selected Molano because of his “immense personal courage and stamina” and to “draw attention to the largely overlooked dire human rights situation in Colombia”.

Human rights lawyers from across the world were nominated for the Award from whom the expert jury selected Jorge Molano as the laureate. The jury chose Khalil Maatouk from Syria and Pu Zhiqiang from China as second and third.
