Another victory!

Another victory for justice harvested by Human IS Right's team legal defense team this week.

3 pretrial detainees released after a long struggle with the judicial system championed by Human IS Right's vibrant legal defense team. It takes a fierce fighting spirit to a achieve results in a judicial system engrained by corruption, administrative bottlenecks, unprofessionalism among others. Through our Prisoner's Rights Project we have been working tirelessly within the past few weeks on cases of detainees who have been in prolonged detention (over 2 years in some cases) to facilitate access to justice.
