Le plafond du Palais de justice a failli voler en éclats, ce 3 février 2016. A l’origine, une vive altercation entre avocats et magistrats, suite à l’interpellation d’une avocate pour trouble d’audience au Tribunal des flagrants délits.

Selon le reporter de Actusen.com présent sur les lieux au moment des faits, tout est parti de l’avocate Me Marie Wade, membre du Barreau de Paris.

Me Marie Wade fait irruption dans la Salle d’audience, sans porter de robe, converse avec un de ses confrères et défie la Présidente du Tribunal…

En effet, c’est en pleine audience que l’avocate a fait irruption dans la Salle d’audience, en plein procès. Et ce, sans avoir porté sa robe. La Présidente du Tribunal du jour, en l’occurrence Racky Dème, la prenant pour une personne étrangère au Palais de justice, l’interpella en ces termes : “Madame, vous ne savez pas que nous sommes en audience?”.

…la juge Racky Dème la fait arrêter en pleine audience…

Egypt: Travel ban issued against prominent human rights lawyer Gamal Eid, en route to training

February 4, 2016

In the early hours of 04 February 2016, Egyptian security forces at Cairo International Airport banned prominent human rights lawyer Gamal Eid from travelling to Athens, to train some lawyers on international human rights law and UN mechanisms.

As executive director of the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI), Eid works hard to defend the people’s rights in Egypt and the rest of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. He founded ANHRI in 20003 to strive to protect freedom of opinion, belief and expression in the whole region. In December, he has participated in a workshop organised by the Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR) at the Arab Internet Governance Forum on “Freedom of opinion and expression on the Internet in the Arab region and their impact on human development.” See: http://www.gc4hr.org/news/view/1146

ANHRI reports that Eid was stopped at the airport allegedly due to the existence of a judicial decision, yet he has not been informed of any details or been investigated, nor has any judicial body told him that he was banned from traveling before.
