Swiss trader rubs shoulders with smuggling network, and other news


Dear friends,

Sometimes our fight against impunity feels like David against Goliath. This month, we bring you news of investigations against a powerful Swiss trader and a network of gasoil smugglers; of trying to curb deeply entrenched negationism in the public space; of exploring unknown legal territory for the sake of victims' rights...

Are NGOs under-resourced to take up these battles? Yes. Does it feel like other actors, starting with State authorities, should be taking a more active role? Certainly. But does it mean we will give up? Never.

Thanks to your support, we are giving it our best shot. With your help, we will keep fighting on the side of victims for as long as it takes.

Best wishes,

The TRIAL International team
