This issue of Attacks on Justice covers the period between 1 June 1991 and 31 May 1992. The report, now in its fourth year, is issued annually by the ICJ’s Centre for the Independence of Judges and Lawyers and documents cases of harassment and persecution of jurists throughout the world.
In an effort to place these violations in a larger context, the report also describes some of the structural shortcomings found in legal systems. This study is based on the CIJL’s conviction that if legal protection for human rights is to be universally preserved, judges and lawyers should be protected against improper interference while performing their duties.
Attacks on Justice is submitted annually to the United Nations Sub-Commission on the Prevention of Discrimination and the Protection of Minorities. Its purpose is to aid this body in assessing the ways and means of providing global protection for the defenders of justice.
