Madagascar: Un avocat tabassé par trois personnes dont une est armée

Samedi matin vers à Antanimena, l’avocat Aly Roman Aliarivelo, a été tabassé par les fils d’un Général Directeur de la Sécurité à la primature et leur ami . L’acte portant coups et blessures à l’avocat a été filmé par un passant et a été publié sur Facebook. La vidéo est devenue virale sur les réseaux sociaux. Tout de suite, la primature ne s’est pas attardée de faire une communiquée. Le général en question a été remercié après cette affaire.
Étant un avocat poche du parti Freedom, Lalatiana Rakotondrazafy déclare qu’elle ne peut pas laisser passer cet acte de barbarie aussi facilement. Une question se pose : si c’était un citoyen ordinaire, est-ce que les autorités seraient elles intervenues. En tout cas, ce qui s’est passé peut servir de leçon à ceux qui croient être au-dessus de la loi… Ou pas.

China: China Makes Lawyers Swear Oath of Loyalty or Face Sanctions

December 4, 2018

Police stand guard outside the Xianning Intermediate People's Court during the trial of a Chinese business tycoon in Xianning, central China's Hubei province, March 31, 2014.

China has stepped up pressure on its embattled legal profession, requiring more than 100,000 lawyers to take a new national oath to “root out instability,” particularly in ethnic minority areas of the country.

Justice minister Fu Zhenghua attended a collective lawyers’ oath-taking ceremony in Hohhot, the regional capital of Inner Mongolia on Sunday, the same day as more than 100,000 lawyers took the same oath in hundreds of Chinese cities, the ministry of justice said in a statement on its website.

The lawyers swore allegiance to the People’s Republic of China, and to “strive to build a socialist country ruled by law,” it said.

The oath ceremonies were aimed at “strengthening lawyers’ ideological and political education,” the ministry said.

But under newly revised rules on oath-taking, lawyers who failed to take the oath could face professional sanctions.

The new rules say that oath-taking is a necessary prerequisite to professional practice, according to Shanghai human rights lawyer Dai Peiqing.

“We weren’t invited,” Dai said of himself and his fellow rights attorneys. “We have been marginalized.”

“I wouldn’t have gone anyway … I have no need to stand up and wave my fist around and parrot these pretty-sounding words,” he said. “I don’t like the swearing with a clenched fist; it’s like violence.”
