France/Israel/Palestine: L’ordre d’expulsion à vie de Jérusalem de Salah Hamouri confirmé

18/10/21

 L’ordre d’expulsion à vie de Jérusalem de Salah Hamouri confirmé

Le ministère israélien de l’Intérieur a annoncé ce lundi 18 octobre la révocation du statut de résident permanent de l’avocat franco-palestinien Salah Hamouri.

Salah Hamouri, avocat franco-palestinien de 36 ans, est né à Jérusalem. Il a toujours vécu en Palestine, c’est son pays et pourtant, aujourd’hui, il risque à tout moment d’être expulsé à vie de sa terre natale.

Jeudi 3 septembre 2020, Salah Hamouri avait été convoqué au centre d’interrogatoire de Moskobiyeh, à Jérusalem. Là-bas, lui avait été remise une lettre du ministre de l’Intérieur israélien. Ce dernier souhaitait retirer purement et simplement la carte de résidence permanente de Salah Hamouri, seul papier officiel lui permettant de vivre, chez lui, à Jérusalem.

“Les actions de Salah Hamouri constituent une violation grave de l’essentiel de son engagement en tant que résident israélien, et un abus de confiance vis-à-vis de l’Etat d’Israël”, avait indiqué Mme Shaked dans un communiqué pour justifier sa décision.

Salah Hamouri avait décidé ensuite de faire appel contre cette décision. Son appel a donc été rejeté ce lundi. Depuis plus de 15 ans maintenant, les autorités israéliennes tentent de briser Salah Hamouri parce qu’il s’oppose à l’Occupation et la colonisation israélienne de la Palestine.

Palestinien par son père, Français par sa mère, (Denise Hamouri est originaire de Bourg en Bresse), Salah Hamouri a grandi à Jérusalem. Il a été incarcéré à plusieurs reprises. En 2005, à 19 ans, alors étudiant en sociologie à Bethléem, il est accusé à tort, soupçonné d’avoir projeté l’assassinat d’un rabbin. Sur la recommandation de son avocate, il plaide coupable, pour éviter une peine de 14 ans de prison. Il sera condamné à une peine de 7 ans.

Egypt: Judges postpone trials of three Egypt activists

A leading figure in Egypt’s 2011 revolution, blogger Alaa Abdel-Fattah, appeared in court on Monday along with other co-defendants at the start of a new trial, his defence team said.

Abdel-Fattah, his lawyer Mohamed el-Baqer, another blogger Mohamed Ibrahim, and activist Yahia Hussein Abdel-Hadi face charges of “broadcasting false news” and belonging to “terrorist” groups in their trial before the Emergency State Security Court in Cairo.

The next hearing in the case was set for November 1, their lawyer Khaled Ali told the AFP news agency. Rulings in the exceptional courts are final and cannot be appealed.

Abdel-Fattah, a computer programmer and prominent figure in the uprising that toppled former leader Hosni Mubarak, has been in pre-trial detention since September 2019. He has spent most of the past decade in jail.

He was arrested in the wake of rare, night-time protests prompted by an exiled construction contractor calling for the removal of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi on claims of corruption.

His lawyer el-Baqer and Ibrahim, also known as “Oxygen”, were also detained in a large crackdown.

The trials of the three Egyptian activists and the rights lawyer were postponed Monday, their lawyer said. They will be tried in two separate proceedings in the same courtroom.

Rights group say there are about 60,000 political prisoners in Egypt facing brutal, unhygienic conditions and overcrowded cells. In a 2019 interview with 60 Minutes on CBS, el-Sisi said there were no political prisoners in Egypt.

The trial of Abdel-Fattah, Ibrahim and el-Baqer was postponed until November 1, while Abdel-Hadi’s was postponed to October 25, according to Ali. The judges postponed proceedings to allow defence lawyers time to review trial-related documents, he said.

The four face charges ranging from disseminating false news and misuse of social media platforms to joining a terrorist group, a reference to the Muslim Brotherhood, which Egypt designated as a terrorist group in 2013.

Egypt’s government has in recent years waged a wide-scale crackdown on dissent.

Abdel-Fattah and Ibrahim were arrested late in 2019 while on probation amid a sweeping security clampdown following small but rare anti-government protests. El-Baqer was arrested while attending a questioning session of Abdel-Fattah by prosecutors in September 2019.
