COVID-19: Jailed Human Rights Defenders Must Be Released Immediately

Check out FIDH’s #ForFreedom campaign for the release of imprisoned human rights defenders threatened by the pandemic

In light of the serious threat posed to prisoners by the rapidly spreading novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, FIDH and its undersigned member organisations recall governments’ obligation to ensure the safety and health of detained individuals that are under their responsibility, and launch a campaign, #ForFreedom , to call for the release of all jailed human rights defenders (HRDs).
