FairTrialsAdmin - April 2, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Prisoner releases, Prison conditions

Covid-19 Justice Project

This page shows how criminal justice systems around the world are being affected by the COVID-19 outbreak and responses to it.

The COVID-19 outbreak, and responses to it, are having an unprecedented impact on criminal justice systems across the globe. The rights of suspects and prisoners must not be forgotten in this time of crisis.

With the help of you, our international partners and friends, we are tracking how justice systems and fair trial rights are being affected. We are highlighting unjustified curtailment of rights and sharing global lessons on how states can pursue fair, workable responses to the many challenges that justice systems are facing.

These pages provide the updates that we are receiving. Please let us know about new developments by emailing us at [email protected].
