ASF Democratic Republic of Congo, Avocats Sans Frontières
ASF Congo was born in 1994 under the democratising wind that blew across the country. We have set ourselves the task to defend all violated human right at any level: political, civil, administrative, legal...
Many of our compatriots had been assisted in justice but several of them could not have access to it because of their precarious situation. Their standards of living did not permit them to have access to it.
We wanted to carry out some prevention actions, training people about their rights and teaching them how to carry out a development project: “pour les Droits de l’homme, il n’y a pas de différence et pour la défense, il n’y pas de frontier” (“for Human Rights, there is no difference and for the defence; no borders”) as our motto borrowed from the President of the Bar Association, Mario Stasi.
To fight against impunity, in Congo and worldwide, under ASF Network label.
At present, we are working in the release of irregular detained people from the penitentiary and correctional centre of Kinshasa.
