“إسماعيل أبو زيد… التأديب و التعذيب قبل الاعدام”

و مازالت تجربة الاعتقال داخل معتقل برج العرب تجعلني شاهد على انتهاكات كنت اجهل إنها ترتكب بالرغم من ادعائي بأن لدي خبرة في مواجهة هذه الانتهاكات بسبب طبيعة عملي كمحامي، قبل الاعتقال كنت اعتقد إن الشخص المحكوم عليه بالإعدام يعامل معاملة خاصة باعتباره شخص شارف على الموت ، فمثلا كنت اظنه يُحتجز في زنزانة أحسن حال من زنزانة المحكوم العادي و إنه يتم تلبية ما يطلبه من احتياجات كما نص عليه قانون تنظيم السجون أو حتى من باب الشفقة، و لكنني اصطدمت بواقع إليم، أولا يتم احتجاز المحكوم عليه بالإعدام داخل أحد عنابر السجن الخاصة و هو عنبر التأديب هذا العنبر مقسم إلي نوعين من الزنازين ، زنازين خاصة بالمعتقلين الخاضعين للتأديب (سياسي و جنائي) ، و النوع الاخر هي زنازين “المخصوص” و هو مصطلح أو مرادف للاعدام ، زنازين محكوم المحكوم عليهم بالإعدام مثل زنازين التأديب تماما و يعاملون معاملة التأديب ، زنزانة صغيرة للغاية بدون دورة مياه ، الزيارة مرة كل شهر ، لا يتم فتح الزنازين إلا نصف ساعة يوميا و المطلوب في هذا الوقت إن يقوم المعتقل بالاستحمام و عسل ملابسه، ممنوع دخول “الكاتل” أو الغلاية، ممنوع الكبريت أو الولاعة و لكل محكوم بطانية واحدة فقط، كل يوم تفتيش أو ما يسمى “بالتجريدة”.و الزيارة “دواعي” و هي كلمة تعني إن الزيارة مدتها أقل من ربع ساعة.

منذ حوالي ٣ أشهر قامت قوة من المخبرين باقتحام أحد زنازين الاعدام و قاموا بضرب المعتقليين المحكوم عليهم بالإعدام (الجنائيين) بسبب تسرب خبر لإدارة المعتقل مفاده إن هؤلاء المعتقليين لديهم النية في الهروب (مجرد النية) و أسفر الضرب و التعذيب عن مقتل المعتقل الجنائي (إسماعيل أبو زيد) و كالعادة صدر التقرير الطبي إن سبب الوفاة هو هبوط حاد في الدورة الدموية و يوميا يتم تعذيب معتقل آخر من ضمن هذه المجموعة إسمه إبراهيم عبد الجليل.

China: A Statement by Lawyer Chen Jiangang, Blocked Today From Leaving China to Take Part in the Humphrey Fellowship Program

April 1, 2019

In the summer of 2018, I applied for the “Humphrey H. Humphrey Fellowship Program” to study law and human rights. After I was interviewed and had taken the TOEFL, I was accepted into the program. According to arrangements made by the program administrators, I was due to fly to the United States on April 1, 2019, to participate in English study in advance of the start of my program.

In order to succeed in traveling to the United States to study, I contacted the relevant personnel of the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau (Beijing PSB) to ask if I was still prohibited from leaving the country. I was told that I was prohibited from going to the United States for educational exchange, and that the exit ban on me and my family was of unlimited duration. The relevant personnel at the Beijing PSB told me that there were two reasons for the ban: first, I represented Xie Yang, one of the lawyers detained in the “709 Lawyers Incident”; second, the US government accepted me as a visiting scholar, “Who knows what they are up to in getting you to come to the US?”

Today, April 1, 2019, I went to the Beijing Capital Airport in the morning to board the plane [flight DL128]. I was pulled away at Customs (海关). A Customs official, who wore the name tag Zhang Guoxin (张国信), told me: Per instructions from the Beijing Public Security Bureau, Chen Jiangang will not be allowed to pass through Customs because his exit will endanger national security. They refused to give me any explanation in writing. After I demanded repeatedly for the basis of the exit ban, Zhang Guoxin replied: “The reasons cannot be explicitly stated; we just can’t let you leave the country.”

Iran: More Than 600,000 Sign Petition To Free Prominent Iran Rights Defender

(A banner with a giant portrait of jailed Iranian lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh is seen on the headquarters of the French National Bar Council, demanding her release, in Paris, March 28, 2019)

More than 600,000 have signed a petition calling for the release of prominent Iranian human rights activist and legal counsel, Nasrin Sotoudeh, Amnesty International (AI) reported.

Meanwhile, in a letter dated March 30, Ms. Sotoudeh disclosed that she has been sentenced to a total of 38 years imprisonment, twelve years of it obligatory, and 148 lashes.

Sotoudeh also maintained that she has been sentenced to twelve years for defending the “Girls of the Revolution Street,” and “advocating corruption and prostitution.”

The anti-hijab movement gained more traction in Iran last year as many lone women (aka the Girls of the Revolution Street) dared to remove their headscarves in public places as a show of defiance. Some of them were arrested and prosecuted. Sotoudeh played a pivotal role in defending the women who dared to drop their headscarves in busy streets across Iran.
