Morocco/France: Maroc: expulsion de deux avocates françaises des prisonniers sahraouis

le 15 février, 2018

Le Maroc expulse une nouvelle fois deux avocates françaises des prisonniers sahraouis dans l’affaire de Gdeim Izik. Alors qu’ils sont considérés comme des prisonniers politiques par les Sahraouis, le Maroc lui les tient comme responsables des violences contre les forces de l’ordre en 2010, violences qui ont tué onze policiers et gendarmes. RFI a joint l’une des avocates. Ingrid Metton, l’une de deux avocates expulsées, ce mercredi, s’indigne face à l’entrave à l’exercice des droits de la défense.

“Je rappelle que dans ce dossier très difficile, dit le procès des prisonniers politiques de Gdeim Izik , le royaume du Maroc a déjà été condamné par le Comité des Nations unies contre la torture, qui a reconnu que l’un des accusés.”

France: Mobilisation massive dans la justice !

le 15 février, 2018

manif2

Les rassemblements dans les juridictions ont été massifs aujourd’hui à l’appel du SM, de l’USM et des organisations syndicales de fonctionnaires de greffe et avocats.

Aujourd’hui,  un front commun s’est levé sur les marches des palais de justice, partout en France. Fonctionnaires de greffe, avocats et magistrats ont répondu nombreux à l’appel à manifester   pour   une  justice  de  qualité,   dotée  d’un  budget   à  la  hauteur   et   contre  les orientations   gestionnaires   des   chantiers   de  la  justice,   notamment   en  matière  de  carte judiciaire et de dématérialisation.

Les  réformes  qui   s’annoncent  pour  la  justice  nous  concernent  tous,   professionnels  de  la justice et citoyens. La réorganisation territoriale qui se profile va en réalité désorganiser la justice, rendre illisible le maillage des tribunaux et des cours d’appel,  accentuer  la distance entre  les   citoyens   et   les   palais   pour   de  nombreux   contentieux.   Le  tribunal   d’instance, juridiction proche, bien identifiée et qui statue dans des délais raisonnables  disparaîtra dans ce   projet.   De   nouvelles   règles   de   procédure   viendront   dresser   des   obstacles supplémentaires, empêchant les citoyens d’agir en justice.

Collectivement,   nous  refusons  ces  projets,   et  nous  rappelons  que  rendre  une  justice  de qualité, accessible à tous, ne doit pas être mission impossible.

A cette heure, la ministre de la Justice n’a pas réagi à cette mobilisation générale. Et pour cause, elle se trouve aujourd’hui aux Pays-Bas, pour “se nourrir des expériences étrangères”, dans  un  pays  où  la  question  de  la  proximité  géographique  se  pose  en  des  termes  bien différents… S’il est un point dont le gouvernement devrait s’inspirer, c’est du budget confié à la justice : 122 euros par habitant aux Pays-Bas, contre 64 en France !   Demain,  elle sera  à Marseille   pour   «   écouter,   échanger,   débattre   »,   mais   sans   rencontrer   les   personnels, poursuivant un mouvement de concertation de façade.
Nous sommes en attente de réformes cohérentes pour une justice indépendance, humaine, protectrice, lisible et accessible à tous.

India: Attack on lawyers: HC pulls up FSL dir for failure to give report

February 15, 2018

The Delhi High Court today pulled up the director of Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) here over its failure to place before it a scientific report in connection with the recent arson attacks on the properties of some lawyers in the national capital.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar said that the evidence was collected by three different police stations for three different incidents in the city, but the forensic reports were still awaited.

“Why can’t we say that it is deliberately delayed and in connivance with the accused,” the bench said and asked Deepa Verma, Director CFSL, “if it had been a case of terrorists, what would have they done”.

“This is happening in the capital of India. It is an emergency situation. A leader of the Delhi High Court Bar Association, its executive member and a lawyer have been attacked,” it said, adding that the forensic laboratory has not yet begun their work.

The court had sought reports from the FSL on the attacks that took place on January 4, 9 and 22 on the lawyers representing a woman advocate, who was allegedly assaulted by policemen and dragged out of her house, after a stalking case was lodged against her by a woman purportedly over a property dispute.

It noted that the FSL had received the samples on January 30.

“Both the delay and the manner in which the samples have been sent to the FSL have to be scrutinised by the Delhi Police Commissioner. The Commissioner will take action for the delay and file a status report,” the bench observed and asked the FSL to file their report on or before the next hearing on February 21.

Pakistan: Ahmed’s lawyer beaten during blasphemy trial

February 16, 2018

blasphemy

Our newest update on Ahmed’s blasphemy case brings somber news. Last Friday, Ahmed’s lawyer, Rizvam, was attacked by the prosecuting attorney.

A Brawl in Court

“The prosecuting attorney didn’t just make verbal statements against what the defense attorney was saying, he actually came to blows against the defense attorney,” FMI‘s Bruce Allen reports.

pray

“He beat him in the courtroom so much so that other lawyers present had to break up the fight and Rizvam had to go to the hospital. His left eye was severely injured, as was his nose. He has not lost vision in the eye, but he has lost use of it temporarily. His eyes are still under wraps.”

Rizvam has since been released from the hospital. This situation isn’t uncommon in Pakistani courtrooms. In fact, some situations have become so extreme that people have been murdered in the very court where justice was supposed to be sought.

And when Rizvam was attacked, the judge hearing the blasphemy case turned a blind eye and walked out of the courtroom. When the judge did this, Allen says it was a way of giving silent consent for the attack to continue.

Kenya/Canada: Bring back Miguna Miguna, Court orders the government

February 15, 2018

Opposition politician Miguna Miguna is free to return to Kenya after the High Court quashed Government decision to strip him of his citizenship.

As soon as the judgement was delivered, Miguna stated he would soon be back to face his tormentors.

But the Government maintained it followed the right procedure in deporting him and would appeal the decision.

In his hard-hitting judgement that sent a warning to State officials disobeying court orders, Justice Luka Kimaru ruled the decision to declare Miguna a non-Kenyan citizen and his subsequent deportation was null and void.

“The declaration by Interior CS Fred Matiang’i based on the advice of Director of Immigration Gordon Kihalangwa that Miguna is not a Kenyan citizen and that his presence in the country is against national interest is null, void and of no legal consequence,” he ruled.

The judge ordered the Government to restore Miguna’s status as a Kenyan. The lawyer was stripped of the right on February 6 just before he was deported to Canada.
