I’m not afraid – I’m committed to my work and I want to carry on working with integrity and dedication

Fidelina Sandoval is a journalist with Globo TV who covers a number of issues relating to human rights, security and civil society organisations. Globo TV and its radio station Radio Globo were one of the few media stations that covered social protests following the coup in 2009. In April 2013, unknown individuals tried to kill Fidelina while she was on her way to work.

Human rights defenders suffer extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, torture and ill-treatment as well as judicial harassment, threats and stigmatisation. Journalists, lawyers, prosecutors, those defending the rights of women, children, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community, indigenous and Afro-Honduran communities, and those working on environmental and land rights issues are particularly at risk.
