Everyone has the right to fair trial. Without a fair trial, every individual risks becoming the victim of a miscarriage of justice, either as an innocent suspect wrongly convicted, or as a victim unable to secure justice for a wrong perpetrated against them.

Each year on 14 June, we join with international bar associations and human rights groups to recognise International Fair Trial Day

This year, our focus will be on the Philippines. Our joint statement explains why the Philippines has been chosen (PDF 552 KB).

Ebru Timtik award

Ebru Timtik was a Turkish lawyer who died during a hunger strike while in detention, protesting against a lack of fair trial guarantees in her own case and the cases of others in Turkey.

Every year, on International Fair Trial Day, the Ebru Timtik Award recognises an individual or an organisation who has made a significant contribution towards defending and promoting the right to a fair trial in the country that International Fair Trial Day is focusing on each year.
