Egypt: Egyptian women’s rights lawyer Azza Soliman honored by committee of Allard Prize for International Integrity

October 2, 2017

Azza Soliman

The committee of the Allard Prize for International Integrity has honored Egyptian women’s rights lawyer and co-founder of the Center for Egyptian Women’s Legal Assistance (CEWLA), Azza Soliman, for her “life dedicated to fighting corruption and injustice faced by Egyptian women in both the private sphere and the judicial system.”

Soliman’s honoring came as she placed among three finalists for the prize who were selected following a comprehensive review of 244 nominations received from 70 countries.

As a co-founder and current trustee of CEWLA, Soliman has operated numerous campaigns to to raise awareness of women’s issues in Egypt and to promote gender equality through legislative reform over the past 25 years.

At a ceremony held on September 28 at the University of British Columbia, Khadija Ismayilova, an Azerbaijani anti-corruption investigative journalist, was announced the CAD $100,000 Allard Prize winner for 2017.

The two other finalists, Soliman of Egypt and an organization known as the “Car Wash Task Force” (Força Tarefa da Lava Jato), a Brazilian anti-corruption prosecutors’ group, were granted CAD $10,000 awards in their efforts in “fighting corruption and protecting human rights.”

The annual award, which is administered by the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia, is decided by a committee composed of representatives of both the Allard School of Law and from the private sector.

Turkey: Prosecutor demands 15 years in jail for human rights defenders

October 8, 2017

The İstanbul Public Prosecutor’s Office has drafted an indictment for 11 people including foreign human rights defenders who were detained during a workshop in İstanbul, seeking 15 years each for allegedly for “being a member of an armed terrorist organization and aiding it,” the state-run TRT reported on Sunday.

On July 5 Turkish police, acting on an anonymous tip, raided a hotel on Büyükada, one of the Princes’ Islands off İstanbul, and detained İdil Eser from Amnesty International, İlknur Üstün from the Women’s Coalition, lawyer Günal Kurşun from the Human Rights Agenda Association, lawyer Nalan Erkem from the Citizens Assembly, Nejat Taştan from the Equal Rights Watch Association, Özlem Dalkıran from the Citizens’ Assembly, lawyer Şeyhmus Özbekli and Veli Acu from the Human Rights Agenda Association, two foreign trainers, Swedish national Ali Garawi and German citizen Peter Steudtner, and the hotel owner. Eight of the 11 people have been under pretrial detention.

According to TRT, Amnesty International’s Turkey section chair Taner Kılıç, who was detained on June 6 in a separate operation in İzmir, was also accused in the same indictment of being a member of the Gülen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding a coup attempt on July 15, 2016. The movement strongly denies any involvement in the failed coup.

France: « Aucune carte préétablie en tête »

le 7 octobre, 2017

Nicole Belloubet : « Nous allons créer 15 000 places de prison. Mais il faut aussi réfléchir à la peine. »  Photo A. M.

Dans une interview exclusive qu’elle nous a accordée, la ministre Nicole Belloubet affirme qu’aucun lieu de justice ne sera fermé dans le cadre de sa réforme. Mais il faudra spécialiser des juridictions.

Prévoyez-vous prochainement ou à terme de fermer des cours d’appel en France ?

Je pars du constat partagé d’une justice qui ne fonctionne pas bien, trop lente, pas lisible, avec trop de dossiers qui s’accumulent pour les professionnels. Il faut donc une réforme globale et je viens de lancer les commissions pour y réfléchir. Dans une telle approche, on ne peut pas ne pas avoir de réflexion sur notre réseau judiciaire, sur l’organisation territoriale. Elle sera portée par des principes : qu’est-ce que la justice aujourd’hui ? De la proximité ? De la spécialisation ? De la collégialité ? Ce qui est sûr, c’est que je vais mener une concertation dans les trois mois qui viennent sur ce sujet-là comme sur les autres en m’appuyant sur deux anciens présidents de la commission des lois de l’Assemblée, Dominique Raimbourg et Philippe Houillon.

Des tribunaux fermeront-ils ?

« Je n’ai aucune carte de suppression de juridiction en tête. Je ne travaille sur aucune carte préétablie. Je répète qu’aucun lieu de justice ne sera fermé. Mais cela ne signifie pas qu’il y aura un statu quo. Il y aura des évolutions en termes de compétence. Il faudra garder une grande proximité des justiciables pour les affaires familiales, le surendettement, le petit contentieux correctionnel. Mais on peut imaginer que certains contentieux soient regroupés dans tel ou tel lieu. »

Le Premier ministre Édouard Philippe et la garde des Sceaux Nicole Belloubet ont présenté le 6 octobre 2017 à Nantes les chantiers de la Justice. Cette démarche qui repose sur cinq piliers vise à transformer en profondeur la Justice afin qu’elle réponde efficacement aux attentes des justiciables et de ceux qui rendent la justice.
