With this Legal Defense Fund, we provide financial support to journalists and media organisations worldwide. We give support to journalists who face prosecution or imprisonment and who are unable to afford a lawyer or trial costs. This way, they will not be forced to withdraw their defense and accept the consequences of, often false, accusations.
The Legal Defense Fund is a part of Free Press Unlimited's Justice and Safety programme. More information about this programme, can be found on the following page.
