JUSTICE FOR SALE follows Claudine, a young and courageous human rights lawyer in Congo in her struggle against injustice and widespread impunity in Congo. She investigates the case of a soldier who was convicted of rape and discovers that his trial was unfair and corrupted. He was convicted without any concrete evidence. In her journey to obtain justice, she uncovers a system where the basic principles of law are virtually ignored. Questions are raised about the role of the international community and non-governmental organisations within the Congolese judicial system. Does their financial support causes justice to be for sale? And who pays the price?
