Mariarosaria Guglielmi, Vice-President of MEDEL, will sit in the panel of judges of The Peoples Tribunal on the Murder of Journalists, opening on November 2nd.
The Indictment underlines that “[s]ince 1992, at least 1400 journalists have been killed for doing their vital job: bringing reliable information to the public. […]. In 86% of these cases, none of the perpetrators are brought to justice”.
Witnesses will include Nobel Peace Prize laureate Maria Ressa and UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression Irene Khan.
