Cameroon: Opposition Leaders Arrested

January 30, 2019

Cameroonian opposition leader Maurice Kamto was arrested in Douala on January 28, 2019 for what appears to be politically motivated reasons.

Cameroonian authorities have arrested political opponents and violently broken up peaceful protests since January 26, 2019. The country’s opposition leader, Maurice Kamto, was arrested in Douala on January 28 for what appears to be politically motivated reasons and remains in detention.

The crackdown appears to be coordinated, as opposition figures allied with Kamto – Albert Dzongang, Christian Penda Ekoka, Alain Fogue, and Célestin Djamen – were also arrested on January 28. Djamen was arrested and taken from a hospital where he was receiving treatment for injuries suffered on January 26 while protesting.

“The Cameroonian government’s crackdown shows that it is unwilling to accept a role for opposition parties, sending a chilling message to those who would dare challenge the status quo,” said Ida Sawyer, deputy Africa director at Human Rights Watch. “The latest crackdown was consistent with the methods of a government whose security forces have committed grave abuses against civilians and dissenting voices in recent years.”

The government should free all those arrested or charge them with a crime, permit protests to go forward, and investigate and punish police violence, Human Rights Watch said.

The whereabouts of Kamto and his colleagues are currently unknown. Human Rights Watch spoke with Emmanuel Simh, a lawyer for Kamto and the others detained, who confirmed that he filed a request to the General Prosecutor in the capital, Yaoundé, seeking access to his clients. He has yet to be provided access. Under Cameroonian law, the police must present any person accused of a crime before a judge within 48 hours, which can be renewed twice.

The arrests follow a violent crackdown on protesters by Biya’s government against Kamto’s supporters who were gathered across Douala on January 26. The protesters called for a recount of the vote, amongst other demands. Witness accounts, medical records, video clips, and images obtained by Human Rights Watch show the heavy-handed and targeted reaction of the Cameroonian state security agents toward the protesters.

As the protest started, police officers, including elements of the Équipes spéciales d’intervention rapide, a special police unit, used teargas and rubber bullets from close range to disperse the crowd, including demonstrators. Witnesses reported chaotic scenes as people fled.

Among those injured was Michelle Ndoki, a well-known lawyer close to Kamto, and Célestin Djamen, both shot in the leg at close range with rubber bullets. Other protesters were treated in several hospitals in Douala for minor injuries after police beat them.

Arrestation du Professeur Maurice KAMTO
Déclaration de la Société française pour le Droit international

Lors de sa réunion du 2 février 2019, le Conseil de la Société a adopté la présente déclaration :

Nous avons appris avec consternation l’arrestation du Professeur Maurice Kamto, membre éminent de la Société française pour le Droit international depuis de nombreuses années. Nous n’entendons pas nous ingérer dans les affaires intérieures de la République du Cameroun mais nous souhaitons attirer l’attention sur les principes fondamentaux du droit international, que notre Société a vocation à défendre et à promouvoir. Nous rappelons que la souveraineté, si elle confère des droits aux États, leur impose aussi des devoirs, y compris à l’égard de leurs propres ressortissants.

La République du Cameroun a souvent dans le passé manifesté son attachement au droit international, notamment devant la Cour internationale de Justice devant laquelle elle a été représentée par le Professeur Kamto. Nous l’appelons solennellement à respecter strictement les principes qui figurent dans la Charte africaine des droits de l’homme et des peuples et dans le Pacte international relatif aux droits civils et politiques l’une et l’autre ratifiés par le Cameroun.

Nous assurons Maurice Kamto et ses proches de tout notre soutien et de notre sympathie.

Turkey/Day of the Endangered Lawyer: ‘If Lawyers Lose Their Voice, Citizens Lose Their Breath’

January 25, 2019

Being dedicated to lawyers in Turkey, January 24 Day of the Endangered Lawyer has been marked by lawyers in İstanbul. Marching from Galatasaray Square to İstanbul Bar Association, lawyers said, “If lawyers lose their voice, citizens lose their breath.”

On January 24 Day of the Endangered Lawyers, which has been dedicated to lawyers in Turkey by the European Democratic Lawyers (AED), European Association of Lawyers for Democracy and World Human Rights (ELDH) and European Bar Human Rights Institute (IDHAE), lawyers marched from Galatasaray Square in Beyoğlu to İstanbul Bar Association.

The march, which was organized in protest against the attacks directed to lawyers in Turkey, was attended by a large number of people. Lawyers attended the march, wearing their robes.

Led by the İstanbul Bar Association, the protest march was supported by İstanbul Bar Association Chair Mehmet Durakoğlu, Adana Bar Association Chair Veli Küçük, Aydın Bar Association Chair Gökhan Bozkurt, Antalya Bar Association Chair Polat Balkan, Bursa Bar Association Chair Gürkan Altun, İzmir Bar Association Chair Özcan Yücel, Tekirdağ Bar Association Chair Sedat Tekneci, Hatay Bar Association Chair Ekrem Dönmez,Gaziantep Bar Association Chair Bektaş Şarklı, Mersin Bar Association Chair Bilgin Yeşilboğaz and Diyarbakır Bar Association Chair Cihan Aydın.

Since five lawyers were murdered in Spain by Francoists on January 24, 1977, this day has marked the “Day of the Endangered Lawyer.”

Throughout the march, the group attending the protest carried the photographs of journalist Uğur Mumcu, who was murdered on January 24, 1993, former Diyarbakır Bar Association Chair Tahir Elçi, who was murdered on November 28, 2015, and Progressive Lawyers Association (ÇHD) Chair Selçuk Kozağaçlı, who has been behind bars since September 17, 2018.

The group of people attending the march also chanted the slogans, “The advocacy has not kept silent and it will not do so”, “Right, law, justice” and “We are Tahir, we are Elçi, we are too numerous to be killed.”

Dans le cadre de ses diverses manifestations 2019 autour de « la journée internationale des avocats en danger », l’IDHAE a présenté, comme il l’avait fait les années précédentes, un ouvrage complet sur la situation du pays concerné. Cette synthèse, établie conjointement avec l’IDHBB -(qui est intervenu constamment depuis 1985 au soutien des avocats turcs)- évoque les cas personnels de 248 avocats en Turquie depuis 2012. (Rappelons que 222 avocats ont été condamnés à de lourdes peines de prison depuis le 15 juillet 2016). Cette présentation officielle s’est déroulée, autour d’un long débat, présenté et animé par le bâtonnier Bertrand FAVREAU, président de l’IDHAE, et Guislaine SEZE, représentant Défenseurs Sans Frontières (DSF) dans la salle du conseil de l’Ordre du barreau de Bordeaux exceptionnellement mise à disposition pour la circonstance.

Turkey: Legal Groups Around The World Rally Behind Turkey’s Dwindling Bar On The International Day Of The Endangered Lawyer

January 24, 2019

Today, the global bar groups rallied in support of the rule of law on the “International Day of the Endangered Lawyer.” The international effort is designed to draw attention to the thousands of lawyers and judges killed or imprisoned each year as they fight for basic legal rights in countries from China to Iran to Venezuela. However, no bar is more devastated than the one in Turkey where thousands of lawyers have been imprisoned and tortured for fighting the authoritarian regime of Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Despite the praise from our president, Erdogan has continued a comprehensive campaign against the free press and political dissidents. This campaign however first required the elimination of thousands of lawyers to eradicate the rule of law to make way for his brutal religious-based authoritarian rule.

We previously discussed how Turkey’s rising dictator, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, was likely to use the failed military coup to complete his objective to become a virtual dictator (backed by Islamist parties). That dire prediction appears to be fast becoming true with a roundup of thousands and the declaration of a state of emergency. Turkish academics have also been banned from leaving the country as well as the replacement of academic deans. Of course, Erdogan has offered his usual Orwellian rationization for the three-month state of emergency as necessary to protect civil liberties by suspending them “to eliminate the threat to democracy in our country, the rule of law, and the rights and freedom of our citizens.”  With that, and the support of his Islamist allies who passed sweeping new powers for the budding Sultan, Erdogan suspended civil liberties in Turkey.

The impact on the Turkish bar has been horrific.

France: La justice veut bloquer un site de la fachosphère

le 8 novembre, 2018

Neuf fournisseurs d’accès à Internet sont assignés en référé ce jeudi après-midi par le procureur de la République de Paris. Objectif : neutraliser un site ouvertement raciste et antisémite hébergé aux États-Unis et dont le directeur de publication vit au Japon.

C’est un des derniers actes de François Molins avant son départ pour la Cour de cassation. Le 16 octobre dernier, l’ancien procureur de Paris a assigné en référé devant le TGI de Paris neuf opérateurs télécoms pour qu’ils bloquent l’accès à un site assimilé à la fachosphère. Une procédure d’urgence inédite au civil. Ce site, autoproclamé Démocratie participative, publie des contenus « haineux à caractère raciste, antisémite et homophobe ».

Les neuf fournisseurs d’accès Internet sont assignés ce jeudi à 14 heures devant le président du tribunal de grande instance de Paris. Le juge des référés devra constater « le trouble manifestement illicite » causé par le site et en ordonner le blocage sous quinze jours, avec une astreinte pour chaque opérateur de 10 000 euros par jour de retard passé ce délai.

L’avocat fera, ce jeudi, en référé, ce qu’on appelle dans le jargon judiciaire une « intervention volontaire » devant le TGI de Paris, au nom du bâtonnier Denis Dreyfus, victime de Démocratie participative. Le site avait qualifié le bâtonnier de « perfide avocat juif », de « dénonciateur des blancs voulant se défendre de la sauvagerie arabe ». Des injures antisémites survenues aussitôt après que l’avocat a publiquement dénoncé des « tentatives de récupération » de l’extrême droite après le meurtre d’un de ses clients…

Belgium/USA: Des ténors du barreau belge interdits d’entrée aux USA parce qu’ils ont… plaidé dans des affaires de terrorisme!

le 18 septembre, 2018

Plusieurs pénalistes qui ont traité des dossiers de terrorisme sont concernés.

Ils ont chacun leur style, chacun leurs clients mais ont tous au moins deux points en commun : ils n’ont pas le droit d’entrer aux États-Unis et ont tous plaidé dans des affaires de terrorisme. Aussi surprenant que cela puisse paraître, pour ces pénalistes, le lien de cause à effet est évident !

Rien qu’à Bruxelles, ils sont au moins cinq dans la même situation. Tous ont voulu se rendre récemment au pays de l’oncle Sam et aucun n’a pu obtenir son Esta, l’autorisation de voyage obligatoire pour les ressortissants belges qui souhaitent rejoindre les USA.

J’y allais chaque été pour un mois rendre visite à ma famille et comme par hasard cette année, après avoir justement défendu une personne soupçonnée de terrorisme, j’ai été refusée“, témoigne une avocate qui préfère rester discrète sur son identité.
