لو كان فاتك

حكمت جنايات اﻹسكندرية دائرة 6 غيابيًا بحبس المحامي الحقوقي محمد رمضان لمدة عشر سنوات، وإلزامه بيته ومنعه من استخدام وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي لمدة خمس سنوات أخرى، وذلك على خلفية اتهامه بإهانة رئيس الجمهورية، وإساءة استخدام مواقع التواصل الاجتماعي، والتحريض على أعمال عنف.

وقالت ماهينور المصري، محامية رمضان، إن المحكمة أصدرت حكمها رغم طلب المحامية تأجيل نظر القضية لحين حضور رمضان، الذي تغيب بسبب مرضه واحتجازه في المستشفى.

وصدر الحكم بموجب قانون 94 لسنة 2015 بشأن مكافحة اﻹرهاب. وتنص المادة 37 من القانون على أن «للمحكمة في أية جريمة إرهابية فضلاً عن الحكم بالعقوبة المقررة، أن تقضي بتدابير أخرى من بينها حظر استخدام وسائل اتصال مُعينة، أو المنع من حيازتها أو إحرازها».

Democratic Republic of Congo: TGI-GOMBE : MUYAMBO ÉTABLIT LE CARACTÈRE USURPATEUR D’EMMANUEL STOUPIS

le 12 avril, 2017

Le prévenu argue que le plaignant qui s’est constitué partie civile n’a jamais été propriétaire des immeubles querellés.

A l’audience foraine tenue à la Prison centrale de Makala, hier mardi 14 mars devant le tribunal de Grande instance de Kinshasa-Gombe, statuant sur les appels formulés par le ministère public, la partie civile et par Muyambo lui-même, ce dernier a établi le caractère usurpateur d’Emmanuel Stoupis. « Emmanuel Stoupis serait un usurpateur des immeubles qui n’ont jamais appartenu à sa supposée mère, Mme Vosnacis dont il ne connait même pas la date de décès. Emmanuel Stoupis se fait passer pour fils de tout Stoupis de la RDC dont Joachim Stoupis de Kolwezi qui n’a aucun rapport avec celui qui semble un instrument du pouvoir contre les Opposants ». a déclaré Jean Claude Muyambo Kyassa.

C’est pour la première fois qu’il a pris la parole devant le tribunal depuis son arrestation le 19 janvier 2015. Occasion pour lui de balayer du revers de la main toutes les infractions retenues contre lui.

Muyambo a dit qu’il n’a jamais vendu un seul immeuble de Monsieur Stoupis. Entre celui-ci et son cabinet, il n’a existé qu’une procuration pour défendre M. Stoupis dans la récupération de ses supposés immeubles. Et le travail fait n’a jamais été payé en termes des honoraires.

Pour Jean Claude Muyambo, il a été fabriqué des dossiers avec sa signature simplement pour le noyer. Ce qui lui fait croire qu’il s’agit d’une manipulation qui viendrait dans le noir.

Cameroon: I am ready to boycott Courts for two years renewable- Barrister Akuwiyadze

April 11, 2017

I won’t go to court on the 02.05.2017.

Lawyers in West Cameroon have lost income for six months and their families are suffering. Were they sacrificing for the usual promises?
No, Mr. President of the Cameroon Bar Council, I won’t go to court on the 02.05.2017.

Consortium Leaders are in jail, some on self exile, while their families are suffering in Cameroon. Did they ask for promises?
No, Mr. President of Cameroon Bar Council, I won’t go to court on the 02.05.2017.

Over 100 West Cameroonians, arbitrarily arrested and incarcerated in East Cameroon are suffering in jails for months. Is that why they are paying this price?
No, Mr. President of the Cameroon Bar Council, I won’t go to court on the 02.05.2017.

Some of our children have been killed and their families are still in pain. Did they die for promises?
No, Mr. President of the Cameroon Bar Council, I won’t go to court on the 02.05.2017.

Our children have sacrificed a whole academic year; parents have lost school fees paid; teachers in private schools are without salary for 5 months now. Is that what they sacrificed (and are still sacrificing) for?

Turkey: Number Of Lawyers Behind Bars Increases To 410 As 3 More Arrested Over Alleged Gülen Links

April 11, 2017

Arrest of 3 more lawyers by Turkish government over alleged Gülen links in Kayseri on Monday has increased the number of lawyers in jail since failed coup attempt on July 15, 2016 to 410, according to the figures of Arrested Lawyers’ Initiative.

Lawyers Funda Aydın, Bekir S.Ç. and Ali Osman T. were arrested in the central province of Kayseri on Monday. It is learned that lawyer brother of Funda Aydın was also arrested previously.  Turkish government had arrested 30 lawyers over alleged Gülen links on April 5 which is celebrated as Lawyers Day in Turkey. A lawyer representing Meral Akşener, a politician who was expelled from the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) due to her bid to oust the incumbent chairman, was also among those arrested lawyers.

Turkish authorities have issued sweeping arrest warrants against more than 1000 lawyers within last seven months on what is believed to be a part of crackdown on critics and opponents of Turkey’s autocratic President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his government. So far 410 lawyers including prominent criminal law attorneys and heads of provincial Bar Associations were formally arrested while many were forced to self-exile to avoid torture and ill treatment in jails. The government also purged 108 academics including famous law professors from law schools of public universities and fired 108 government lawyers en masse.

What is more, the authorities also ordered the seizure of all assets of lawyers who faced an arrest although they were not convicted of any crime and there was no indictment filed and no trial hearing held yet. The seizure of assets has deprived family members of their livelihood while lawyers are left languishing behind bars in long pre-trial detentions.
