Justice Initiative lawyers have represented scores of individuals and groups before domestic and international human rights courts and tribunals around the world. These cases seek not only to vindicate individual claims, but to establish and strengthen the law’s protection for all.
Freedom FM v. Cameroon
This case concerns a current-affairs radio station that was denied a broadcasting license in Cameroon.
Alade v. the Federal Republic of Nigeria
Sikiru Alade spent almost a decade in pretrial detention. His case exposes a system in which police routinely charge suspects in order to have them detained, but make no effort to investigate or prosecute the case.
APDHE v. Equatorial Guinea
This complaint challenged a small clique of ruling families in Equatorial Guinea who reap huge profits through corruption and monopoly control of the national petro-carbon industry, while ordinary citizens live in poverty.
