Resolution on Ukraine – Palermo, 19.11.22

The General Assembly of the FBE on 19 November 2022 in Palermo, Italy resolved:

We strongly condemn the war in Ukraine and call upon lawyers to support our colleagues working to provide legal services in the most extreme situations of war, including in those places where humanitarian aid is necessary in order to preserve life, liberty and human rights. We support the work of our legal colleagues in assisting those people who continue to be stranded on the borders of Belarus, Poland, Romania and Ukraine, in giving legal assistance and humanitarian aid to all those who still need help. In our role as lawyers, we continue to be vigilant to protest war crimes and genocide.
