By the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime
On Monday, 15th June at 2pm (Paris time) the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime will launch its "Assassination Witness" campaign and its flagship book "Faces of Assassination - Bearing Witness to the Victims of Organized Crime". This book brings together 50 profiles of people who have been murdered by criminal groups since the beginning of the millennium. It is a compilation of men and women who have been murdered because they have confronted, weakened or threatened criminal groups.
The launch of this book and the accompanying campaign is the latest step in their work to document the impact of criminal assassinations. They are working to ensure that the memory of those who fought against organized crime is kept alive and that justice will one day be done.
