الباقر يُطالب بنقله من سجن العقرب ٢
————————–
أثناء التحقيق مع المحامي الحقوقي محمد الباقر أمام نيابة أمن الدولة أمس، قال إنه عند نقله إلى سجن “شديد الحراسة ٢” في يوم ٣٠ سبتمبر ٢٠١٩ تم تغمية عينيه وجعله يسير محني الظهر مع سيل من الإهانات، كما قاموا بتجريده من كل ما يملك – حتى أدوات النظافة الشخصية – وإلباسه زي السجن وهو مغمض العينين بصورة مهينة، ثم إقتياده إلى الزنزانة.

ظل الباقر بنفس ملابسه الداخلية التي تم القبض عليه بها وبدون أي أدوات نظافة لمدة ٩ أيام، وبدون السماح له بالاستحمام، بالإضافة إلى النوم على الأرض، مما أصابه بآلام في الظهر والقطنية وكتفه، وبمرض جلدي، وطلب عرضه على طبيب السجن وقُوبل طلبه بالرفض من قبل إدارة السجن. يُعاني الباقر من مشاكل في الكُلى وتم منعه من شراء مياه نظيفة، أو طعام من كانتين السجن بالرغم من ترك ذويه لنقود في الأمانات الخاصة به – كما هو متبع في السجون – مما إضطره لشرب مياه السجن غير النظيفة حتى اليوم وإلى تناول طعام غير آدمي، بالإضافة إلى سوء التهوية داخل الزنزانة ومنعه من الخروج للتريض خارجها طوال مدة إحتجازه. هذا مع إستمرار المعاملة المهينة بصورة يومية داخل الزنزانة، والتي بدأت عند الإستقبال داخل السجن.

ويستنكر الباقر إحتجازه داخل سجن “شديد الحراسة ٢”على الرغم من كونه محامي حقوقي، وذلك بالإضافة إلى ظروف إحتجازه غير الآدمية، ويطالب بنقله لسجن آخر ذو ظروف أكثر آدمية، كحد أدنى وتحسين ظروف الإحتجاز في هذا السجن.

Lawyer and HRD Mohamed Elbaker demands transfer from Scorpion 2 prison
————————————————
During the questioning of Baker by state security prosecution yesterday, he said that during his transfer to High Security Prison 2 on the 30th of September 2019, blindfolded and was made to walk bending while subjected to insults and humiliation. He was deprived of all his belongings including items of personal hygiene and was dressed in prison uniform, while blindfolded in a degrading manner, and was then lead to his cell.
Baker remained in the same underwear he had on when he was arrested and without any personal hygiene items for 9 days. He was not allowed to shower and was left to sleep on the floor, resulting in pains in his back and shoulders. He also contracted a skin infection, when he asked to be examined by the prison doctor, his request was denied.
Baker also suffers from renal problems. He was denied access to clean drinking water or food from the prison canteen although his family had left money in his name in the prison safe, as is the rule in prisons. He had to drink the polluted prison water and consume food of extremely bad quality, in addition to lack of ventilation in his cell and denying him any time out of it. The humiliating treatment that began on the first day continues daily until the time of writing this statement.
Baker rejects his detention in High Security Prison 2 despite the fact that he is a human rights lawyer. His prison conditions are inhumane. He demands the transfer to another prison with more humane conditions satisfying he minimal standards of detention as well as the improvement of conditions in this prison.

Bangladesh: BNP expels lawyer from assoc body for defending Abrar’s killer

October 9, 2019

Bangladesh Nationalist Party has expelled Morsheda Khatun Shilpi — defence lawyer for Mujahidul, an accused of BUET student Abrar Fahad killing — from BNP associate organisation Jatiyatabadi Ainjibi Forum for violating the organisation’s discipline.

BNP expelled the lawyer, also a member of the 179-member central convening committee of JAF, in a press release signed by the party senior joint-secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on early Wednesday.

BNP protested Abrar murder and alleged that he was murdered for criticising the government’s anti-state deal with India and demanded highest punishment for the killers.

Morsheda was expelled against the backdrop of social media outrage against her for taking part in the legal battle for an accused in the case of killing Abrar Fahad and many demanded her expulsion from JAF.

The press release signed by Rizvi, however, did not mention whether she was expelled for standing as the defence lawyer of Mujahidul.
