Attacks on Justice: harassment and persecution of judges and lawyers, January 1988 – June 1989

This is the first annual report by the Centre for the Independence of Judges and Lawyers (CIJL) cataloging the harassment and persecution of judges and lawyers worldwide.

We plan to submit such a report each year in August to the United Nations Sub-Commission on the Prevention of Discrimination and the Protection of Minorities as that body has been requested by the UN Commission on Human Rights to “consider effective means to monitor the implementation of the UN Basic Principles on the Independence of the Judiciary and the protection of practising lawyers.”
