Award ceremony of Ludovic-Trarieux awarded to al-Roken to take place next week

The award ceremony of the International Human Rights Prize “Ludovic Trarieux” 2017 awarded to Emirati human rights lawyer Mohamed al-Roken will take place in Italy on November 10, 2017.

This award is “the award given by lawyers to a lawyer” who “throughout his career has illustrated, by his activity or his suffering, the defence of human rights, the promotion of defence rights, the supremacy of law, and the struggle against racism and intolerance in any form.”

It is expected that al-Roken will receive the prize in absentia as he is still serving his 10-year sentence in UAE jails for advocating human rights in his country.

Created in 1984, this award was first awarded to Nelson Mandela, who was detained for 23 years in South Africa.
