UBA Urges Lawyers to Inform About Violations of Professional Rights and Guarantees!


KYIV - April 18, 2018. The Initiative Group on the Protection of Lawyers' Rights notifies on the preparation of an overview report on the violations of the rights of lawyers during 2017 and the first quarter of 2018. The purpose of this report is to prepare a monitoring overview  within the framework of the work of the UN Special Rapporteur on the independence of lawyers.

We address all lawyers who, in the given period, found themselves in a situation where their professional rights and guarantees were violated, to provide the relevant information by sending:

- Appeal to the Initiative Group on violation of rights, guarantees or safety encroachments;

- Evidence confirming the facts indicated in the Appeal.
