Solidarity with Ivan Pavlov

The Campaign for Freedom of Information stands with FOI activists around the world in expressing our solidarity with Ivan Pavlov, a Russian human rights activist and lawyer, who has been charged under Article 310 of the Russian Federation Criminal Code which makes it a crime to disclose data of a preliminary investigation which has been declared secret.

Among other things, Pavlov heads Team 29, a legal defence organisation that is named after the article in the Russian Constitution which guarantees freedom of expression and the right to access information held by public authorities. Pavlov has also been an active member for many years of the Freedom of Information Advocates Network (FOIAnet), the leading global network of right to information activists.

A letter which the Campaign has signed calls on members of the international community to do all that they can to defend Pavlov’s rights and, by extension, those of all Russians.
