In solidarity with human rights defenders

News | Posted on Thursday 15 December 2022

On Friday 9 December, CAHR staff and students commemorated International Human Rights Defender Day by remembering those who continue to suffer and face risks as they promote and protect human rights.

We remembered, in particular, Mohamed El-Baqer, lawyer and Director of Adalah Center for Rights and Freedoms in Egypt, who was arrested on 29 September 2019 and remains in detention.
