Iran: Iran prison SHOCK: Inside the CHILLING torture cells as Ayatollah of DEATH takes charge

April 25, 2019

EXCLUSIVE: IRAN’S controversial record on human rights is universally acknowledged – but with Tehran’s latest appointment of the so-called Ayatollah Death taking control over the country’s prison system, campaigners have demanded more is done to stop the harrowing atrocities carried out on prisoners.

Iran prison horror: Ebrahim Raisi

Food deprivation, violent lashings and solitary confinement. These are the harrowing experiences of prisoners serving time in Iran’s jails. And those are the lucky ones; in 1988, at least 5,000 people were killed in a series of state sponsored murders, in what critics of the regime claim is Iran’s bloodiest execution on record. Now charities and opposition parties fear further atrocities could be committed, following the appointment of ‘Ayatollah Death’ who is accused of having a leading role in the murders.

Hardline cleric Ebrahim Raisi is now in charge of Iranian jails – including where British woman Nazanin Zaghari Ratcliffe is currently being held.

The appointment of the ultra conservative leader puts thousands of prisoners in mortal danger, according to UK-based NGO International Observatory of Human Rights, who represent oppressed women in the region.

Raisi is accused of being one of the leading figures behind the 1988 mass execution of at least 5,000 Iranian prisoners – but the real figure of the deaths is likely to be far, far higher.

And human rights activists have lashed out at the controversial appointment, blasting the news as a backward-step for Iran.

Nasrin Sotoudeh was sentenced last month to 38 years in jail and 148 lashes for representing women’s rights and defending a number of female protesters jailed in the strict Muslim country for standing against the compulsory hijab (veiling) law.

Her sentence was passed on March 11 this year while she was in prison, without a trial having taken place – and just one day later, the United Nations announced Iran will get a seat on the UN women’s rights committee – a decision that sparked a raft of damning complaints over the country’s violations of women’s rights.

Iran/Italy: Nasrin, protesta di 200 avvocati davanti al consolato iraniano di Milano

18/04/19

«Nasrin Sotoudeh è stata condannata a una pena elevatissima perché, evidentemente, difendeva persone che si riteneva non dovessero essere difese. Per gli avvocati è un dovere intervenire e protestare non solo quando vengono
negati i più elementari diritti di difesa delle persone, ovunquesi trovino, ma quando questa negazione dei diritti avvenga colpendo gli avvocati». Con queste parole il presidente dell’Ordine degli avvocati di Milano, Vinicio Nardo, ha aperto la manifestazione di protesta dei legali milanesi giovedì pomeriggio davanti al Consolato generale iraniano di Milano per la condanna a 38 anni di carcere inflitta all’avvocatessa iraniana.

«L’Iran è un grande e importante Paese – ha aggiunto Nardo – e ho chiesto di incontrare il Console generale, il quale gentilmente mi riceverà domani. Gli porterò la nostra delibera, nella quale proponiamo anche di candidare Nasrin Sotoudeh al Premio Nobel per la Pace, e gli porterò il senso di questa manifestazione» per «una serie di violazioni che non potevano lasciarci indifferenti».

Alla manifestazione, a cui erano presenti in oltre 200 persone, hanno aderito anche delegazioni di altri ordini (Torino, Busto Arsizio), associazioni forensi e della società civile che hanno espresso la loro solidarietà all’avvocatessa Sotoudeh. Tra loro, la Camera penale milanese, con la presidente Monica Gambirasio, AslaWomen, con l’avvocatessa Barbara De Muro, l’Unione avvocati amministrativisti, con il presidente Umberto Fantigrossi, la consigliera dell’Ordine Silvia Belloni, una delegazione del Partito radicale, la deputata Lia Quartapelle, alcuni consiglieri comunali Pd, con l’avvocato Alessandro Giungi, e l’associazione Italia Stato di Diritto, con la presidente Simona Viola.

France/Iran: Le barreau de Paris soutient les avocats iraniens injustement emprisonnés

le 12 avril, 2019

Shirin Ebadi, avocate iranienne et prix Nobel de la paix en 2003, était reçue le 11 avril par le barreau de Paris pour une conférence exceptionnelle sur la situation des avocats iraniens.

En présence de plus de 400 avocats du barreau de Paris, de hautes personnalités, de parlementaires, d’élus de la mairie de Paris et d’ONG engagés dans la défense des droits de l’Homme, Shirin Ebadi a rappelé avec force la situation difficile des avocats iraniens, dont beaucoup sont aujourd’hui détenus pour avoir exercé leur métier, et avoir notamment défendu les libertés et droits fondamentaux des femmes iraniennes.

Le bâtonnier de Paris Marie-Aimée Peyron a exprimé toute la solidarité du barreau de Paris pour ces derniers en déclarant : « Le Barreau de Paris est soucieux de prêter son regard à celles et ceux dont les yeux n’osent plus s’ouvrir ». Marie-Aimée Peyron a également affirmé qu’« il convient de lutter ensemble contre la fin totale de l’indépendance judiciaire en Iran. » Elle a conclu son discours en égrenant le nom des avocats iraniens aujourd’hui incarcérés, et en rappelant que le barreau de Paris a placé l’une d’entre eux, Nasrin Sotoudeh, sous sa protection et l’a élu membre d’honneur.

Le vice-bâtonnier de Paris Basile Ader a ensuite lu le courrier que Nasrin Sotoudeh avait adressé la veille, par l’intermédiaire de son mari, au conseil de l’ordre du Barreau de Paris et aux barreaux de France. Nasrin Sotoudeh, avocate iranienne, a été condamnée le mois dernier à 38 ans d’emprisonnement et 148 coups de fouet pour avoir défendu des femmes ayant refusé de porter le voile.

Dans son courrier, Nasrin Sotoudeh dit sa joie d’être soutenue par ses confrères français. Elle dénonce les procédures et les peines injustes qui ont été prononcées contre elle et ses confrères iraniens par la justice de son pays. Elle rappelle son combat pour la défense des droits des femmes partout dans le monde et remercie le Barreau de Paris de son soutien en la matière.

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.

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.
