Ukraine: Kyiv demonstrators rally for justice in murder of lawyer Iryna Nozdrovska

January 2, 2018

Hundreds of people, including human rights advocates and lawyers, rallied near the headquarters of the National Police of Ukraine on Volodymyrska Street to demand justice in the murder of 38-year-old Iryna Nozdrovska.

Nozdrovska, a human rights activist and lawyer, was found dead in a river near Demydove village in Kyiv Oblast on Jan. 1 after receiving death threats for pursuing justice in the last two years for her sister.

Her sister, 26-year-old Svitlana Sepatinska, was struck and killed on Sept. 30, 2015 by a car driven under the influence of alcohol by Dmytro Rososhanskiy, the nephew of the then-head of the Vyshgorod District Court. Rososhanskiy was convicted and sentenced to seven years in prison, but his appeal for freedom under an amnesty law was heard in court on Dec. 27.

Nozdrovska went missing on Dec. 29, the day after the Kyiv Oblast Court of Appeal rejected Rososhanskiy’s appeal for freedom. “The court didn’t satisfy his defender’s claim,” wrote Nozdrovska on her Facebook page. “The killer of my sister will celebrate New Year behind bars.”

Nozdrovska had allegedly received threats from Rososhanskiy and his family.

Lawmaker Mustafa Nayyem wrote on his Facebook page on Jan. 1 that Rososhanskiy’s father was openly threatening Nozdrovska during the court session, saying she would “end up badly.”

Activists carried posters reading “Find the murderers!”, demanded to speed up the investigation and punish Nozdrovska’s murderers.

Yury Levchenko was among them.

Egypt: Judicially persecuted Lawyer & Presidential candidate Khaled Ali’s Appeal heard January 3rd

2/1/18

Image may contain: 1 person, suit

غدا الجلسة الثانية لاستئناف المرشح الرئاسي #خالد_علي على حكم حبسه.. ودفاعه يكشف تلفيق فيديو الإشارة المنسوبة له

تعقد محكمة مستأنف الدقي بالجيزة، غدا الأربعاء، الجلسة الثانية لنظر استئناف المرشح الرئاسي خالد علي ضد حكم حبسه 3 شهور في قضية الفعل المنسوب له على هامش الاحتفال بحكم مصرية تيران وصنافير.
وكان أحد المحامين قد اقام القضية ناسبا لخالد علي قيامه بالاشارة المزعومة، عقب إعلانه الأول لنيته بالترشح لرئاسة الجمهورية، وتخللت القضية الكثير من العوار القانوني سواء في مرحلة التحقيق باحتجاز خالد علي بشكل غير قانوني عندما التزم بحق الصمت ردا على رفض النيابة السماح له بالاطلاع على أوراق القضية ليتم إحالة القضية في اليوم التالي للمحاكمة ودون تحقيق، والتي أصدرت حكمها بالقضية دون مرافعة
وطالب دفاع « خالد علي» خلال الجلسة الأولى للاستئناف والتي شهدت حشودا أمنية كثيفة أمام المحكمة وتخللها احتجازه لأكثر من 8 ساعات بعد إخلاء المحكمة من وسائل الاعلام والمواطنين، باستدعاء اللجنة الفنية التي قدمت تقريرها وسماع تقرير اللجنة الاستشارية التي قدمت تقريرا يدحض تقرير اللجنة الفنية، وهو ما استجابت إليه هيئة مستأنف الدقي وقررت تأجيل القضية للغد.
وتخصص الجلسة لمناقشة اللجنة الفنية الحكومية، كما ستشهد عرض فيديو أعده فريق دفاع خالد علي يكشف تلفيق فيديو الإشارة الفاضحة.

India: Mumbai artist, lawyer murder: A two-year hunt continues even as the trail goes cold

It’s unsual for the Mumbai Police to keep track of residents’ birthdays, but in the case of the daughter of Vidyadhar Rajbhar (28), the Mumbai Police Crime Branch has kept a close watch on her birthday for two consecutive years. Rajbhar, prime accused in the Hema Upadhyaya murder case, has been on the run for two years now.

On December 12, 2015, the bodies of renowned artist Hema Upadhyaya (43) and her lawyer Harish Bhambani (65) were found in a drain in Kandivali, suburban Mumbai. They appeared to have been killed the previous day. Following questioning, Hema’s ex-husband Chintan, who is a celebrated contemporary artist, was arrested along with four others. Rajbhar, a metal fabrication artist, used to take on fabrication jobs for Chintan’s artworks.

Rajbhar, a key accused in the murder case, has been on the run since, first taking a train northward with other accused before alighting mid-way and vanishing. He has managed to evade the Mumbai Police for over two years now.

Turkey: Turkey starts 2018 by detaining 15 judges, prosecutors, lawyers

Turkey starts 2018 by detaining 15 judges, prosecutors, lawyers

At least 15 lawyers, and judges and prosecutors who were earlier removed from their offices as part of the government’s post-coup crackdown were detained on Jan 1.

State-run Anadolu news agency said Monday that police carried out operations in several provinces and detained 15 suspects sought by the Tokat Public Prosecutor’s Office.

The detainees are accused of links to the Gulen movement.

Turkish government blames the movement for the July 15, 2016 coup attempt while the latter denies involvement. The government considers the movement as a terrorist organization and has arrested more than 60,000 people over ties to the group, among them many judges and prosecutors as well as lawyers.
