The Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE) grants its 2020 Human Rights Award to seven Egyptian lawyers currently in prison and grants an exceptional posthumous Human Rights Award to Turkish lawyer Ebru Timtik who died in August 2020.
The CCBE wishes to express its solidarity with those affected, pays tribute to the work of health professionals, and hopes that the management of the pandemic by national European authorities and international authorities will be carried out with respect for human rights and the rule of law.
CCBE services continue to be provided, in particular through the use of online communication technologies and remote meetings. A specific page is now available and gathers the actions taken by the CCBE and the information available at European and international level on the impact of COVID-19 on Justice. This page will be regularly updated given the evolution of the situation.
