Les propositions de réforme de la justice ne tiennent aucun compte de la réalité de la justice en France. Mobilisons-nous !
La ministre de la Justice a lancé de nombreux chantiers en affichant des objectifs de simplification des procédures pénales et civiles et d’amélioration de la qualité, la lisibilité, l’accessibilité de la justice et l’efficacité des peines. La consultation n’est évidemment que de pure façade : un agenda impossible de consultations qui aboutissent à des rapports aux
conclusions prévisibles sur lesquelles s’organise un “dialogue” à marche forcée.
Les propositions ne tiennent aucun compte de la réalité de la justice en France.
La justice française est en piteux état.
Elle bénéficie de 1,8 % du budget public annuel, soit 64 € par habitant et par an et la France se situe au 23ème rang sur 28 au sein de l’Union européenne pour le pourcentage du budget alloué à la justice. Les équipements informatiques sont indigents, les réseaux trop lents, les logiciels obsolètes et/ou inadaptés. Le budget de l’aide juridictionnelle est très insuffisant par rapport aux besoins de justice et à celui de nos voisins allemands, belges ou anglais.
La justice française est submergée donc lente.
Les objectifs purement gestionnaires du projet de réforme de la carte judiciaire vont désorganiser le fonctionnement quotidien de la justice et rendre illisible l’organisation des tribunaux et cours, tout en supprimant une juridiction rapide, identifiée et proche des justiciables : le tribunal d’instance.
Nous appelons à une journée d’action le 15 février pour une Justice de qualité, accessible, avec un budget, des équipements et des effectifs à la hauteur d’un Etat européen au 21ème siècle.

It is third incident in which a lawyer was gunned down in Sheikhpura as in Oct a lawyer and his wife were murdered while a female lawyer, Aalia Shehzadi, was shot dead in May last year. The lawyers held strike and condemned the murder of their colleagues. They said that the police did not provide them security and demanded the government authorities to arrest the culprits.

A senior UN official warned the Security Council that the situation in the Maldives where the president has declared a state of emergency may deteriorate even further.
The top UN body met behind closed doors to discuss the crisis sparked by President Abdulla Yameen’s decision to arrest judges who had ordered the release of his political opponents.
UN Assistant Secretary-General Miroslav Jenca told the top UN body that while there were no reports of violent clashes, “the situation in the Maldives is tense and may deteriorate even further,” according to UN sources.
It was the first time that the council discussed the crisis since it began on February 1, but there was no statement released after the meeting.
The crisis was triggered by a surprise Supreme Court decision to release from jail former president and opposition leader Mohamed Nasheed and eight other political prisoners.
The former secretary general of the Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSYK) was arrested Thursday in western Turkey over alleged links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO).

The arrest came during a police operation targeting 10 separate locations in Canakkale following a decision from the provincial chief prosecutor’s office.
During the same operation, dubbed “absence houses”, a name given to hideouts of secret FETO members, 20 others were also detained.
Separately, 11 employees of Ankara-based Gazi University, including those who had been dismissed, were held over suspected links to FETO following arrest
warrants issued for 17 university personnel early Thursday.
Details of frantic but fruitless efforts by the Canadian government to intervene in the Miguna Miguna saga using diplomatic channels have been revealed.
In correspondence seen by Nation, the Canadian High Commission wrote to the Foreign Affairs ministry expressing concern over the government’s handling of the self-declared “general” of the National Resistance Movement (NRM).
Dr Miguna holds both Kenyan and Canadian citizenship.
In the letter dated February 5, the Canadian High Commission protested that it was not only notified of Dr Miguna’s arrest and subsequent detention in police custody but was also denied information and access to him.
This, the commission noted, was in blatant non-compliance with the Vienna Convention of Diplomatic Relations.
“The High Commission of Canada is concerned that such actions prevent the Canadian government from monitoring the health and wellbeing of its citizens, the embassy seeks assurances that future consular visits will not face similar restrictions,” the letter reads.
