A Safer World For The Truth is a collaboration between the press freedom organisations Free Press Unlimited (FPU), the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) and Reporters Without Borders (RSF) to investigate, document and pursue justice for murdered journalists. By reinvistatigating murders and reporting our findings to media, civil society and local authorities.
In eight out of ten cases the murderers of journalists are not convicted for their crimes. This persistently high level of impunity perpetuates a cycle of violence against journalists, posing a threat to freedom of expression. We need to ensure that all journalist murders are being investigated, prosecuted and the perpetrators face the consequences.
Through our cold case investigations we have provided relatives and loved ones of murdered journalists with a way to be heard; (re)open domestic criminal proceedings; and emboldened advocacy efforts.
Our investigations and advocacy efforts continue. Sign up to our email list to be periodically updated on our impact and investigations.
