Tomorrow, Fernando Flores —Advisory Member of Guernica 37 International Justice Chambers— and Victoria Bernabéu —Head of Administration and Finance— will attend the ceremony in which the Foundation for Justice (FxJ, Fundación por la Justicia) and the Valencian Council of Bar Associations (CVCA, Consejo Valenciano de Colegios de Abogados) will award the 2019 Human Rights Prize to Uruguayan senator and former president of the Republic of Uruguay, José Alberto Mujica Cordano, also known as “Pepe Mujica”.

Date: 5 February 2020

Venue: Auditorium of the Valencia Bar Association, Plaza Tetuán no. 16, Valencia (Spain)

Time: 19:00 h

The ceremony will take place in the auditorium of the Valencia Bar Association (ICAV, Ilustre Colegio de Abogados de Valencia). Pepe Mujica will also lead a colloquium the day after the ceremony at the Center del Carme Cultura Contemporània.

The prize, which was awarded by the jury last December after assessing another 19 applications, recognizes the former President’s trajectory and personal and institutional commitment to human rights and justice.
