Justice for Anna Politkovskaya!
Call for international commission of enquiry

More than 6,000 people, including 200 leading European figures, have already backed this initiative. The include media figures such as Patrick Poivre d’Arvor, Christine Ockrent and Juan Luis Cebrian, leading judges such as Baltasar Garzón and Carla del Ponte, politicians such as Bernard Kouchner, Bronislaw Geremek and Daniel Cohn-Bendit.

Those demanding justice for Anna Politkovskaya also include former Russian dissidents such as Elena Bonner-Sakharov and Vladimir Bukovski, philosophers such as André Glucksmann, Bernard-Henri Lévy and André Comte-Sponville, writers such as Fernando Arrabal, Ismaïl Kadaré and Margaret Atwood), investigators such as Marie Mendras and Nicole Bacharan, and actors such as Jeanne Moreau and Alain Souchon.
