ABOUT THE EVENT:

The teams of The Unfiltered Journal and Lexpert Assist will be organizing a symposium on 2nd November 2020 addressing the crimes committed against the journalists.

Impunity leads to more killings and is often an indication of conflicts and breakdown of law and judicial systems.

Thus, in recognition of the consequences of impunity, especially with regards to the crimes against journalists, the United Nations General Assembly in 2013, announced 2 November as the ‘International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists’ (IDEI).
