Only one week after his administrative detention without charge or trial was renewed once more by the Israeli occupation, Salah Hamouri, the French-Palestinian lawyer and political prisoner, was declared an honorary citizen of the commune of Montcel at a ceremony organized by Mayor Gregory Bonnet and the town’s city council on 6 July.

Earlier this month, a federal judge in Argentina formally asked the government of Russia to arrest Ali Akbar Velayati, an Iranian diplomat who traveled to Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Velayati, a personal envoy of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, travels the world these days to ensure that other governments hear the views of Iran’s ruling theocrat, particularly on the subject of the 2015 nuclear agreement.

Twenty-four years ago, Velayati was Iran’s foreign minister. Twenty-four years ago, on July 18, a car bomb destroyed the AMIA Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) building in Buenos Aires. The blast killed 85 people and injured hundreds of others. Argentine investigators eventually tied the atrocity to the government of Iran.

Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who investigated the bombing, was able to prove that the authorization for the attack was made during a meeting of Iran’s National Security Council on August 14, 1993. Nisman compiled an unassailable dossier of evidence that implicated several Iranian officials, including Velayati, in the horrible crime. Indeed, Velayati and seven other Iranian officials have been the subjects of international arrest warrants since 2006.

Nisman was eventually murdered for his fearless investigations. His killer, or killers, remain at large.

L’abjecte nouvelle vient de tomber : Salah Hamouri reste en prison.
Un nouvel ordre vient d’être émis, la détention administrative de Salah est prolongée de 3 mois.

 Après 10 mois de détention, toujours aucune charge n’est prononcée contre notre compatriote.
 Après 10 mois de détention, les demandes des autorités françaises, y compris du Président Emmanuel Macron en personne à Netanyahou n’ont eu aucun effet sur les autorités israéliennes qui s’acharnent sur Salah Hamouri.
 Après 10 mois d’injustice qui se prolongent aujourd’hui, nous demandons une nouvelle fois quels moyens sont mis par France Diplomatie pour faire respecter un Français arbitrairement incarcéré. C’est un homme, une famille qui sont atteints brutalement par cette décision perverse. Mais c’est aussi la France qui est insultée avec cette prolongation alors qu’elle n’a de cesse de dérouler le tapis rouge aux dirigeants israéliens.

📍Dans ces conditions nous demandons solennellement au Président Macron de manifester publiquement sa position de soutien à Salah Hamouri et qu’il reçoive son épouse, Elsa Lefort, afin de l’informer des dispositions qu’il entend prendre face à cette situation qui n’a que trop duré. La liberté de Salah Hamouri ne saurait s’arrêter aux frontières de l’Etat israélien. La liberté est universelle, la France doit en être dépositaire et actrice majeure.

Argentina/Iran/Israel: Argentine Senators Discuss Removal of Ex-President Kirchner’s Legal Immunity Over AMIA Bombing, Alberto Nisman Killing

June 5, 2018

Argentine senators began discussions on Tuesday on the possible removal of former President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s immunity from prosecution — less than a week after a federal court in Buenos Aires ruled definitively that Alberto Nisman, the federal prosecutor who was investigating the 1994 terrorist bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in the Argentine capital, along with the Kirchner government’s alleged cover-up of Iran’s culpability, was assassinated in January 2015.

Nisman’s body was found in his Buenos Aires apartment hours before he was due to present a formal complaint to Argentina’s Congress that detailed the alleged role of Kirchner and her government colleagues in covering up Iran’s responsibility for the AMIA atrocity. Eighty-five people died and hundreds more were wounded when a truck packed with explosives rammed into the AMIA building in downtown Buenos Aires on July 18, 1994.

While government-appointed investigators initially tried to depict Nisman’s death as a suicide, in December 2017 federal judge Julian Ercolini issued the first ruling that Nisman had been murdered. In the same month, the federal judge investigating Nisman’s original complaint against the former Kirchner government, Claudio Bonadio, indicted the ex-president and several of her close colleagues on treason charges related to a secret pact that effectively exonerated the Tehran regime for the AMIA bombing. Bonadio also requested formally that the Argentine Senate — of which Kirchner is an elected member — remove her legal immunity.

Argentina/Iran/Israel: Argentine federal court confirms AMIA prosecutor was murdered


June 2, 2018

Judge rules Alberto Nisman was killed as ‘direct consequence’ of his accusations of cover-up in 1994 Jewish center bombing; instructs ‘speedy and serious’ investigation

An Argentine federal appeals court confirmed Friday that special prosecutor Alberto Nisman, found dead in 2015 while investigating a 1994 Jewish center bombing, was murdered.

The Federal Court of Buenos Aires said there was no doubt that Nisman’s death was a homicide rather than suicide, El Pais reported, and came as a “direct consequence” of his accusations that then-president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner covered up Iran’s role in the attack on the Buenos Aires AMIA center that left 85 dead and hundreds wounded.

The court called on the judge overseeing the case to focus on the investigation of the homicide “with the speed and seriousness that such a grave matter imposes.”

The court thus confirmed a federal judge’s ruling in December that Nisman’s death “could not have been a suicide.”

Judge Julian Ercolini wrote in a 656-page ruling then that there was enough evidence to support foul play in the death of Nisman, who was discovered in his Buenos Aires apartment with a gunshot wound to the head, delivered at close range from a handgun found at his side.

Ercolini’s ruling also pointed to one suspect in the death: Diego Lagomarsino, an IT employee in Nisman’s office, who he said was a possible accessory to murder.

Nisman had previously accused the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group of carrying out the attack AMIA at the direction of Iran. He established how and when Iran commissioned the bombing and that Hezbollah recruited and dispatched the suicide-bomber, Ibrahim Berro, who drove the explosives-filled Renault Trafic van into the building on July 18, 1994.

The prosecutor later accused Kirchner and other officials of agreeing to ignore Iran’s involvement in exchange for commercial benefits for Argentina, in violation of the country’s penal code and the independence of the judiciary.

France/Israel: Qu’en est-il de la libération de Salah Hamouri, victime de l’arbitraire israélien?

le 1er juin, 2018

En ce début de mois de juin, et après près de dix mois d’incarcération dans les geôles israéliennes, le Comité de soutien de l’avocat franco-palestinien, Salah Hamouri, fait le point sur sa situation douloureuse, d’une injustice criante.

Tout d’abord, à l’occasion de la visite du Consul général de France à Tel Aviv auprès de Salah Hamouri, le 26 avril, ce dernier a fait la demande expresse – confirmée par nos soins et son conseil français auprès de l’Elysée – de bénéficier désormais de la protection diplomatique.

Celle-ci, en deux mots, consiste à ce que l’Etat français – un individu ne pouvant le faire – saisisse les juridictions internationales pour faire condamner l’Etat responsable de la détention arbitraire de l’un de ses concitoyens. En quelque sorte le préjudice subi par Salah est considéré comme un préjudice contre la France. Cette procédure dépend uniquement du Président de la République qui a un droit discrétionnaire pour le faire ou non.

En second lieu, lors de l’audience dite de “mi-peine”, le 22 mai, le juge israélien, sous l’influence du Shin Bet déclarant avoir de nouveaux éléments qu’il ne pouvait rendre publics – a laissé planer la prolongation de 3 mois de l’emprisonnement de Salah qui devrait « normalement » sortir fin juin. Cet arbitraire est une machine infernale. On affirme sans jamais avoir à prouver et on ajoute des peines de prison à l’infini à un Palestinien.
