Egypt/Day of the Endangered Lawyer: San Marino 24 gennaio

tribunale

La Camera penale di San Marino aderisce alla giornata internazionale dell’avvocato minacciato, esprime solidarietà a tutti i colleghi che si adoperano per tutelare i diritti fondamentali e condanna ogni forma di pressione. Quest’anno la giornata è dedicata agli avvocati egiziani che si battono, in particolare, per il diritto alla difesa e che proprio per questo, sottolinea la nota, subiscono violenze di ogni sorta, arresti arbitrari e processi privi delle minime garanzie di difesa.

Egypt/Day of the Endangered Lawyer: Nederland

23/01/18

NOTEER IN DE NIEUWE AGENDA: 24 JANUARI
DAG VAN DE BEDREIGDE ADVOCAAT

EGYPTE: PIRAMIDES, DUIKEN…EN BEDREIGDE ADVOCATEN

Egypte heeft twee gezichten. Een prachtige vakantiebestemming. Maar ook een land van contrasten en conflicten. De mensenrechten en de onafhankelijkheid van de rechtspraak komen voortdurend onder druk. Ook de situatie van advocaten verslechtert in een rap tempo. Een groot aantal advocaten werd de afgelopen jaren gearresteerd in verband met hun werkzaamheden. Daarom staat de jaarlijkse ‘Dag van de bedreigde advocaat’ op 24 januari 2018 in het teken van Egypte. Met een manifestatie en lezing in Den Haag. Betuig je steun, ben erbij!

Gezamenlijk springen de stichting De Dag van de Bedreigde Advocaat en Lawyers for Lawyers die dag op de bres voor hun Egyptische collega’s. Met een demonstratie voor de rechtbank in Den Haag en een seminar, waarvoor Lawyers for Lawyers de bekende advocate Mahienour El-Massry (1986) heeft uitgenodigd. Deze jonge Egyptische advocate is gekend vanwege haar niet aflatende inzet voor de mensenrechten en kritische houding jegens het militaire regime in haar land.

We rekenen op jouw solidariteit én aanwezigheid op 24 januari.

PROGRAMMA

15.00 Manifestatie en aanbieden petitie, komt allen al dan niet in toga!

China: Chinese authorities disbar second rights lawyer in two weeks

Januar 23, 2018

Zhu Shengwu_单人

Authorities in China’s southern province of Guangdong have canceled the legal license of human rights lawyer Sui Muqing, he told Reuters on Tuesday, a week after another prominent rights lawyer was detained following similar punishment.

Since coming to power in 2012, Chinese President Xi Jinping has presided over a sweeping crackdown on dissent, which has seen hundreds of rights lawyers and activists detained and dozens jailed.

“I’ve taken on a lot of relatively high-profile human rights cases,” Sui told Reuters. “This is the settling of accounts after the autumn harvest,” he added, using a phrase that means to face the authorities after a movement has ended.

An active and outspoken rights lawyer based in the city of Guangzhou, Sui had regularly defended fellow lawyers and activists charged by the authorities.

The Guangdong justice bureau unexpectedly called him late on Monday, asking for a meeting the next day, at which officials handed him papers saying he had been disbarred for violating conduct rules for lawyers, Sui said.

Como todos sabéis, A.L.A. forma parte de Abogados Europeos Democráticos (A.E.D.), asociación formada por asociaciones y sindicatos de abogados de varios países de a U.E.

En su seno funciona la Comisión Defensa de la Defensa, encargada de velar por el respeto al derecho de defensa y por la integridad e independencia de los abogados en cualquier país del mundo.

A tal fin se instituyó el Día del Abogado Amenazado para poner el foco cada año en un país donde la situación de las abogadas y abogados fuese especialmente grave.

Como recordaréis, en diciembre de 2010 nos concentramos ante la embajada iraní, para protestar por la gravísima situación de nuestros compañeros de Irán.

A partir de ese año, y a iniciativa de A.L.A., el día se conmemora el 24 de enero, para hacerlo coincidir con el aniversario de la matanza de nuestros compañeros abogados laboralistas de Atocha, en 1977.

Este año vamos a fijar nuestra especial atención en la situación que sufren nuestras compañeras y compañeros de la República de Egipto.
