Every week, a journalist is murdered.

A Safer World For The Truth is an initiative to investigate, document and pursue justice for murdered journalists. By reinvestigating murders and reporting our findings to media, civil society and local authorities.

Killing the truth is the world’s safest crime. In eight out of ten cases the killers of journalists go free. That is why we have launched our own investigations. To investigate, document and pursue justice. Read our latest investigation below.

"This trial was the closest our family have ever come to have our day in court and it has given our family renewed hope, courage and strength to keep fighting."
— Ahimsa Wickrematunge, daughter of journalist Lasantha Wickrematunge, whose case was heard at the People’s Tribunal on the Murder of Journalists.
"We don’t know how many nightmares we will give to the people that are behind the murder."
— Faisal Sidddiqi, lawyer of journalist Zubair Mujahid’s family, on the impact of our cold case investigation into his murder.

Free Press Unlimited's mission is to ensure that independent news and information remains available to everyone. This helps people control their living conditions, develop themselves and monitor their governments. To achieve this, Free Press Unlimited collaborates with local media organisations and journalists, particularly in countries with limited (press)freedom. These media and journalists are close to their audience and therefore the best guarantee for a sustainable, professional and diverse media landscape. Free Press Unlimited's vision is short and to the point: People deserve to know. All over the world.
