In memory of Rusi Stanev

“I’m not an object. I’m a person. I need my freedom.” said Rusi Stanev on his way to Strasbourg to attend the hearing before the the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights. MHE is deeply saddened by the death of Mr. Rusi Stanev, a Bulgarian human rights activist and advocate. His work has influenced ours and will continue to be an asset to us in our fight for the rights of person with psychosocial disabilities.
