Sweden: B'Tselem awarded Stockholm Human Rights Award

No award to organizations shining international light on Palestinian human-rights violations.

B'Tselem, the prominent Israeli human-rights advocate, was awarded the 2014 Stockholm Human Rights Award, the International Legal Assistance Consortium and two major bar associations said. 
"B’Tselem has shone international light on human-rights violations in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, providing a voice to victims and calling for accountability," the ILAC, the Swedish Bar Association and the International Bar Association said in a statement.

"It is commendable that B’Tselem has so tirelessly fought to uphold human rights in an environment where its criticism has not always been welcome."
