Petition on Azerbaijan – Day of the Endangered Lawyer
Lawyers for Lawyers has co-signed a petition in support of the 11th Day of the Endangered Lawyer, which focuses on the situation for lawyers in Azerbaijan.
The Day of the Endangered Lawyer is commemorated each year on 24 January. On this special day, Lawyers for Lawyers and our international colleagues from the Coalition for the Endangered Lawyer, ask their international colleagues to 1) raise awareness about the number of lawyers whoare being harassed, silenced, pressured, threatened, persecuted, and in some countries tortured and murdered for their work as lawyers; and 2) initiate, or further develop a national discussion about ways to protect lawyers.
