Lucy Kassa won another award for her investigative work

Lucy Kassa, a freelance investigative journalist, has won the Magnitsky Human Rights Awards for exposing atrocities against ethnic Tigrayans in the ongoing genocidal war in Ethiopia.

Receiving her award on November 17, 2022 (tonight), she spoke of the importance of reporting rape and hunger as a weapon of war, considering the case of the war on Tigray in Ethiopia.

The Magnitsky Awards are named after the Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who was murdered in Russian police custody after exposing a massive government corruption scheme.

It happens every year in London and recognizes brave journalists, politicians and activists in human rights and anti-corruption.

Lucy is also one of the 2022 Amnesty international media award winners for her investigative works about the same war and its horrendous effects.
