DICK MARTY

Politician (Liberal Party) and former public prosecutor

"Migrants are today the most vulnerable population, the most exposed to the abuses of all kind. The AsyLex commitment is of paramount importance because it reminds us that we are in a State of Law and that the Constitution prescribes to act with a “spirit of solidarity and openness to the world”."

"The West sets the world on fire and shuts its doors. Part of this inhuman and despicable strategy is that refugees do not even understand the asylum procedures and thus their already small chances and severely curtailed rights. Asylex makes an important contribution to rectifying this situation."

"AsyLex represents the values of humanitarian Switzerland. I find it worthy of support that they carry out such qualified work with the help of over 50 dedicated volunteers - I wish the team much courage in the future!"

SAMIRA MARTI

Member of the National Council (Social Democrats)

"80 million people worldwide are currently displaced and in search of protection. Those who have found their way to Switzerland face the next challenge: the Swiss asylum system. The legal advice and support that AsyLex offers free of charge to those affected in asylum proceedings is therefore extremely valuable and worthy of support."

BERTRAND PICCARD

Explorer, Doctor and Opinion Leader

"We live in a world where inequalities, in addition to being morally unacceptable, are also becoming a threat to security. This is why I admire the work of AsyLex. This highly motivated team of young volunteers is trying to make the impossible possible—to give access to free legal aid to the most disadvantaged people in our society."

DAMIEN COTTIER

Member of the National Council (Liberal Party)

"I believe it is important to support an association like AsyLex, as it helps people in very vulnerable situations who do not know how our institutions work and who find themselves powerless when faced with complex issues in a foreign language and environment. AsyLex offers them useful support to better understand the stakes of a complex and potentially impressive procedure. It is important that the asylum procedure allows for the most objective possible definition of who is entitled to international protection within the meaning of the 1951 Geneva Convention on Refugees."

LISA MAZZONE

Member of the Council of States (Green Party)

"At the end of the migratory journey, the asylum system is a new maze, through which it is essential to be able to defend oneself by asserting one's rights. AsyLex is an invaluable support for all legal questions on this road."
