Our efforts are not in vain 


Dear friends, 

Tomorrow will mark the anniversary of our organization. On 6 June 2002, what was then the “Swiss NGO against impunity” pledged to fight for justice at the side of victims of international crimes, in Switzerland and elsewhere. 

Our latest Activity Report, published last month, measured how far we have come since then. In 2018 alone, TRIAL International supported over 700 victims of the worst crimes, and trained over 300 legal practitioners so that they can multiply our impact on the ground.

By reading this newsletter and supporting our actions, you too are an important contributor to this fight! And this month’s newsletter proves that our efforts are not in vain.

We thank you sincerely for your involvement and hope you enjoy the read,
