India: Cops use force against lawyers protesting visit by WB governor

October 15, 2017

Police had to resort to mild lathicharge when hundreds of lawyers from 22 districts of western UP staged violent protests against visiting West Bengal Governor Keshrinath Tripathi, because of his long-standing opposition to the formation of a high court bench in West UP. Tripathi was scheduled to visit Chaudhary Charan Singh University (CCSU) for an event.

Agitating advocates broke through police barricades on the way to CCSU and scuffled with security forces including local police, Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) and contingents of Rapid Action Force (RAF), after which police used force to disperse them. Tripathi had to eventually be taken by helicopter to the venue of the event.
The lawyers contended that Tripathi, who himself had been a lawyer in Allahabad High Court had been the “main hurdle” in the formation of a bench in the region.
Former president of HC Bench Central Action Committee Gajender Dhama said, “Tripathi is the sole reason why we have not been able to get a HC bench in Meerut. In 1992, when the BJP-BSP combine was in power, the then chief minister Mayawati had agreed to the logical demand for the bench, but Tripathi, who was UP assembly speaker at the time had vehemently opposed the move. From time to time, whenever we came close to getting a bench he opposed it, so much so that he once said the bench would be formed ‘on my dead body’. So, our protest was symbolic, comprising lawyers of 22 districts of western UP but police gave it a colour of a violent agitation.”

Turkey/AI: Birthday behind bars in Turkey’s highest security prison

October 13, 2017

Image result for idil eser

Imagine if you threw a party and no one showed up.

For İdil Eser, Director of Amnesty International in Turkey, there is no danger of that tomorrow, 14 October, as thousands of people are expected to gather to celebrate her birthday.

Only one person will be missing: İdil herself.


Instead of taking part in one of the more than 200 birthday parties that are taking place in 27 countries, İdil will be spending her birthday in the highest security section of Turkey’s highest security prison.

She was arrested, alongside nine other human rights defenders, on terrorism charges just over 100 days ago. On October 4, in an alarming development, a Turkish prosecutor filed an indictment calling for jail terms of up to 15 years for the group – known as the ‘Istanbul 10’ – and for Amnesty International’s Turkey Chair, Taner Kiliç, was arrested a month earlier on similar ridiculous charges.

For more than two months after her arrest, Idil (who immediate family) was not allowed personal visitors. Despite the avalanche of birthday cards and messages sent to Amnesty International by well-wishers, she is still not allowed to receive mail.
