Denis Mukwege, laureate of the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 2014

Denis Mukwege is the laureate of the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 2014, following Tuesday's decision by EP President Martin Schulz and the political group leaders.  Mukwege will be invited to Strasbourg on 26 November to receive the award during the plenary session.

Announcing Mukwege as the 2014 laureate, President Schulz said: "The Conference of Presidents decided unanimously to award Dr Denis Mukwege from Democratic Republic of Congo the Sakharov Prize for his fight for protection especially of women."
 
In many armed conflicts around the world, rape is used as a weapon of war, but Mukwege decided to help victims in his country. The 59-year-old gynaecologist founded the Panzi Hospital in Bukavu in 1998, when a war took place in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where today he still treats victims of sexual violence who have sustained serious injuries.
