France: Chambéry : les avocats des deux Savoie manifestent pour le maintien de leur Cour d’appel

le 14 décembre, 2017

Au moins 200 avocats des barreaux de Thonon-les-Bains, Bonneville, Annecy, Albertville et Chambéry se sont rassemblés jeudi matin à Chambéry à l’occasion d’une conférence du Défenseur des Droits Jacques Toubon. Leur message: aidez-nous à défendre le maintien de la Cour d’appel de Chambéry.

 

Au moins 200 avocats venus d'Albertville, Bonneville, Thonon, Annecy, Chambéry et d'autres barreaux de Rhône-Alpes pour défendre la Cour d'appel

Les Chambériens ont assisté jeudi matin à un défilé de robes noires entre la place de Genève et le Palais de justice. Les avocats des deux Savoie sont inquiets: le maintien de la Cour d’appel de Chambéry est de nouveau menacé. Les bâtonniers des cinq tribunaux de grande instance (Thonon-les-Bains, Bonneville, Annecy, Albertville et Chambéry), entourés de leurs confrères des dix autres barreaux de Rhône-Alpes ont rappelé l’importance de cette Cour d’appel, notamment pour tout ce qui concerne le contentieux de la montagne, mais aussi pour maintenir une justice de proximité.

La suppression de la Cour d’appel de Chambéry risquerait de voir les citoyens ne plus exercer leur droit de la défense s’ils devaient demain traverser une partie de la France pour aller mener des actions en justice ou se défendre face à des actions engagées contre eux”, a expliqué la bâtonnière de Chambéry Me Catherine Anxionnaz, entourée de ses cinq collègues.

Argentina/Israel/Iran: Experts: Treason Charge Against Argentinian Ex-President Vindicates Murdered Prosecutor

December 12, 2017

FeaturedImage_2017-12-13_150257_YouTube_Alberto_Nisman

In an op-ed published in The New York Times on Monday, Mark Dubowitz and Toby Dershowitz, argued that the treason charge sought against Argentinian ex-President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and a number of her top aides, vindicates the late Alberto Nisman’s investigation into the 1994 AMIA bombing.

Last Thursday, Argentinians woke up to a political earthquake as the federal judge Claudio Bonadio, who investigated Kirchner’s government role in covering up Iran’s involvement in the 1994 bombing of the Jewish community center, indicted Kirchner, Foreign Minister Hector Timerman, as well as other government officials. Dubowitz and Dershowitz, respectively the CEO and senior vice president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, explained that Kirchner was being charged with “nothing less than covering up Iran’s role in one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in the Americas before Sept. 11.”

Charges against Kirchner include “treason against the homeland” and she could spend 25 years in jail.  The judge has asked lawmakers in the Senate to strip away her parliamentary immunity so that she can be arrested and tried.

From 2004 to 2015, Dubowitz and Dershowitz recounted, Alberto Nisman investigated the AMIA terror attack and concluded that Iran planned it, and that later, the Kirchner government sought to “whitewash” the Islamic Republic’s role in the attack by establishing a joint “truth commission” that would allow them to identify the culprits of the bombing. The memorandum of understanding between Argentina and Iran would also remove Interpol’s red notices (similar to arrest warrants) against the perpetrators.

Kirchner’s government, with the help of Foreign Minister Hector Timerman, established backchannels by way of Syria, to negotiate the secret pact.

Nisman was found dead in his apartment the day before he was due to testify before Congress about his findings in January 2015.

“In a normal democracy,” the experts noted, “investigating the murders of a man like Alberto Nisman would be a top priority.” It wasn’t until December 2015, when Mauricio Macri, the newly elected president, ordered an independent investigation.

Bangladesh: বসা নিয়ে বাগবিতণ্ডা : ভ্রাম্যমাণ আদালতে এবার আইনজীবীর সাজা

দিনাজপুরের বীরগঞ্জে এসি ল্যান্ডের কক্ষে বসা নিয়ে বাগবিতণ্ডার জের ধরে সিনিয়র এক আইনজীবীকে ভ্রাম্যমাণ আদালত বসিয়ে সাজা দিয়েছেন বীরগঞ্জের এসি ল্যান্ড বিরোদা রানী রায়। ভুক্তভোগী আইনজীবীর নাম অ্যাডভোকেট নিরোদ বিহারী রায়।

গত মঙ্গলবার সকালে একটি নামজারির মামলায় শুনানি করতে গেলে তাঁকে ৫০০ টাকা জরিমানা, অনাদায়ে এক দিনের করাদণ্ড দেওয়া হয়।

সাজা দেওয়ার সময় এসি ল্যান্ড তাঁর বক্তব্যে ‘আমি আমার ক্ষমতা দেখালাম, পারলে আপনি আপনার ক্ষমতা দেখান’ এমন উক্তি করেছেন বলে অভিযোগ করেন ভুক্তভোগী সিনিয়র আইনজীবী নিরোদ বিহারী রায়। পরে জেলা আইনজীবী সমিতি বিষয়টি জেলা প্রশাসককে জানালে তাত্ক্ষণিকভাবে এসি ল্যান্ড বিরোদা রানী রায়কে কুড়িগ্রামের ভূরুঙ্গামারী উপজেলায় বদলি করা হয়।

এ ঘটনায় জেলা আইনজীবী সমিতি আজ বৃহস্পতিবার ও আগামী রবিবার দুই দিনের প্রতিবাদ কর্মসূচি ঘোষণা করেছে।

জানা গেছে, মো. সাহেব আলী নামের এক ব্যক্তির একটি জমির খারিজ আবেদনের (পুরাতন নাম বাতিল করা বা নামজারি) শুনানি ছিল গত মঙ্গলবার এসি ল্যান্ড অফিসে। সাহেব আলীর প্রতিপক্ষ হলেন মো. খায়রুল ইসলাম গং। সাহেব আলীর আইনজীবী হচ্ছেন নিরোদ বাহারী রায়। আর প্রতিপক্ষ খায়রুল ইসলাম গংয়ের আইনজীবী হলেন অ্যাডভোকেট নুরুল ইসলাম ও শিক্ষানবিশ আইনজীবী মোহাম্মদ ওয়ারিস উল ইসলাম অলি।

China/UK: BHRC calls for release of Li Yuhan as China’s arrest of human rights lawyers continues

December 12, 2017

BHRC has released a statement calling for the immediate release of and production of evidence against Li Yuhan, a Chinese lawyer known to have defended numerous human rights cases over 26 years in practice.

BHRC also calls upon the Chinese authorities to affirm, enforce and ensure full respect for fundamental rights of human rights defenders as guaranteed under national and international law.

Ms Li was arrested on 9 October 2017 by public security officers of the Shenyang Public Security Bureau’s Helping branch office. She could not be traced until 31 October when her family was verbally informed that she was being detained in the Shenyang City #1 Detention Center for allegedly “picking quarrels and provoking troubles.”

At the time of her arrest, Ms Li was defending lawyer Wang Yu, who was charged with the crime of “subverting state power” following the 709 Crackdown.

Ms Li’s arrest and detention appears to form part of the Chinese authorities’ wider approach at suppressing lawyers’ freedom of expression, as demonstrated by the continued detention of many human rights defenders more than two years after the 709 Crackdown.

Turkey/EU: PACE Report: Situation Of Lawyers In Turkey Causes Grave Concerns

December 14, 2017

“The situation of lawyers in Turkey following the failed coup d’état of July 2016 and that of lawyers representing Kurdish clients, or otherwise associated with the Kurdish cause, have both given rise to grave concerns,” said Sabien Lahaye-Battheu, a reporter appointed by Parliamentary Assembly of Council of Europe (PACE) for “The case for drafting a European Convention on the profession of lawyer.

Laheye-Battheu, who is a member of Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) at European Parliament from Belgium, has also stated in her report’s provisional version that “the decree laws introduced under Turkey’s state of emergency reduced the rights of the defence” in the country.

The report’s parts related to the situation of defence and lawyers in Turkey as follow:

“According to the CCBE, by September 13, 2017, 1343 lawyers were subject to criminal prosecution and 524 had been arrested since the coup. These included 18 lawyers who had been representing the university lecturer and teacher dismissed under the emergency decree-laws.

“Further mass arrests of lawyers accused of links with the Gülen movement include those of 19 lawyers in Kahramanmaraş province, 11 lawyers in Denizli province, arrest warrants for 62 members of the İstanbul Bar Association, 22 lawyers in İzmir (including Taner Kılıç, chair of Amnesty International Turkey), 4 lawyers and members of the Human Rights Association (IHD) in Mardin province; 22 lawyers in Antalya and 50 lawyers in İstanbul.

“On May 9, 2017, Mustafa Özben, a lawyer and academic at a university shut down by the Turkish government on account of alleged links to the Gülen movement, was abducted in Ankara, following which his wife filed a complaint with the Turkish Constitutional Court alleging that he was kidnapped by the Turkish intelligence services.

“In July 2017, 3 lawyers were imprisoned for up to 12 years on charges relating to links to the Gülen movement.

“The CCBE has referred to a statement by the Adana Bar Association expressing its members ‘fear’ and ‘concern’ about possible reprisals against lawyers…, the decision made by some not to provide legal assistance to people detained in relation to the failed coup, and the negative treatment they faced from the police and prosecutors if they represented the detainees.

Thailand: Human rights lawyer faces Computer Crime charges for FB post

December 14, 2017

The police have summoned Anon Numpa, a human rights lawyer, and pro-democracy activist, to meet the police because of his Facebook post criticising a verdict.
Anon Nampa (file photo)
According to Thai Lawyers for Human Rights, Lt Col Supharat Kam-in filed a complaint against Anon for his Facebook post, published on 2 Nov 2017. Supharat accused Anon of contempt of the court and importing false information onto the computer system, under Article 14 of the Computer Crime Act.
Anon’s problematic post is related to a news report about the Khon Kaen Court’s verdict on 2 Nov which found seven anti-junta activists guilty of contempt of the court for their activities in front of Khon Kaen Court on 10 Jan 2017. The peaceful symbolic activity was organised to give moral courage to Jaturapat Boonpattararaksa, alias Pai Daodin, a pro-democracy activist who has been sentenced to 2 years and six months in jail for lese majeste.
Among the seven is Sirawit Serithiwat, a well-known anti-junta activist who faces several charges from his political expression. The court sentenced Sirawith to six months in jail (suspended for two years), a fine and 1-year community service. The court also prohibits the seven “from associating or gathering to do any activity or repeating the same activity”.

France: Réforme de la carte judiciaire : une “journée blanche” ce jeudi pour les barreaux du grand Sud-Ouest

le 14 décembre, 2017

Les 36 barreaux du grand Sud-Ouest, parmi lesquels ceux de Montpellier, Mende et Toulouse, sont appelés à une journée de grève ce jeudi 14 décembre, pour protester contre le silence du ministère de la Justice au sujet de la réforme imminente de la carte judiciaire.

Ce jeudi 14 décembre, les avocats sont appelés à observer une “journée blanche”, sans aucune activité juridictionnelle, par les36 barreaux du grand Sud-Ouest, des Sables-d’Olonne (Vendée) à Montpellier.

Chaque barreau est libre de décliner cette journée comme il l’entend, par des fermetures de cabinet, des grèves des audiences ou des rassemblements sur les marches des Palais de Justice.

A Montpellier, des grèves sont possibles mais aucun rassemblement ne devrait avoir lieu. A Mende, pas de grève non plus.

Ce mouvement vise à dénoncer le silence du ministère de la Justiceau sujet de la réforme imminente de la carte judiciaire. Les avocats protestent contre le manque de dialogue et d’informations de la Chancellerie sur la proposition de la loi d’orientation et de programmation pour le redressement de la justice adoptée par le Sénat en première lecture le 24 octobre, qui réforme la carte judiciaire.
