Bugün, Türkiye’de ve dünyada, sadece savundukları müvekkilleri ve yerine getirdikleri mesleki faaliyetleri, siyasi iktidarların “hoşuna” gitmediği için binlerce meslektaşımız tutsaktır. Avukatlara ve avukatlık mesleğine yönelik olarak Türkiye’de uzun yıllardır yaratılan baskı ve şiddet ortamı ile mesleğimizin özgür ve güvenli bir şekilde yapılamayacak duruma getirilmeye çalışıldığının farkındayız. Mesleğimize yönelik her türlü saldırının karşısında, meslektaşlarımızın her zaman yanında olmaya devam edeceğiz.

İzmir Barosu olarak, Türkiye’de ve dünyada insan haklarının korunması ve gelişimi mücadelesini sürdüren tüm meslektaşlarımızı selamlıyor, avukatların sesinin yurttaşın nefesi olduğunun bilinciyle tüm meslektaşlarımızı 24 Ocak 2019 günü saat 16:00’da İstanbul Galatasaray Meydanı’na davet ediyoruz.

Söz konusu etkinlik için 24 Ocak 2019 günü saat: 05.00’te İzmir Barosu’ndan otobüs hareket edecektir.

Armenia: Justice Ministry Seeks To Protect Embattled Lawyers

January 16, 2019

Armenia - Angry residents of Echmiadzin block a highway in protest against a Yerevan court's decision to release retired General Manvel Grigorian from pretrial detention, January 12, 2019.

Armenia’s Justice Ministry and national bar association have drafted a bill that would make it a crime to insult lawyers or threaten them and their family members with violence.

The move results from angry public reactions to high-profile court cases involving former senior government and military officials accused of corruption. They have also targeted lawyers representing some of those former officials, including Manvel Grigorian, a retired army general prosecuted on corruption charges.

Last week one of Grigorian’s lawyers, Arsen Mkrtchian, was confronted outside a court in Yerevan by protesters furious with his client’s recent release from pretrial detention. Some of those protesters verbally abused Mkrtchian and spat at his car.

Armenia’s Chamber of Advocates condemned the incident and demanded stronger government protection of its members dealing with sensitive criminal cases. The chairman of the bar association, Ara Zohrabian, said earlier this week that failure to do so would put lawyers at risk of serious physical attacks.

The resulting bill drafted by the Justice Ministry and the Chamber of Advocates calls for criminalizing slander, insults and threats voiced against lawyers. All forms of libel were decriminalized in Armenia about a decade ago.

Not all Armenian lawyers agree with the proposed bill.
