France/Iran: Le soutien du barreau de Draguignan à l’avocate iranienne Nasrin Sotoudeh

le 4 juillet, 2019

Le regard déterminé de Nasrin Sotoudeh s’affiche désormais sur le mur du parvis du pôle culturel Chabran.

Cette avocate iranienne de 55 ans, lauréate du prix Sakharov du Parlement européen, a été condamnée par les autorités iraniennes à trente-trois ans de prison et 140 coups de fouet, pour incitation à la débauche.« Elle a commis deux crimes, a indiqué ce jeudi le bâtonnier Philippe Schreck. Celui d’être une femme, celui d’être une avocate, mais aussi celui d’avoir défendu des jeunes filles iraniennes coupables d’avoir ôté leur voile en public. »Ce jeudi soir, le barreau de Draguignan s’est associé au barreau national français, pour saluer son courage et exiger sa libération.Et pour que ce combat soit plus largement connu, la communauté Dracénie Provence Verdon a mis à disposition ce lieu culturel symbolique.« Il accueille 1.500 personnes par jour, a indiqué Olivier Audibert-Troin, et nous inaugurons en quelque sorte le mur des libertés. »Maître Nasrin Sotoudeh est inscrite depuis le mois de mars dernier au tableau de l’ordre des avocats, comme membre honoris causa du barreau dracénois.
« Nous nous battons pour la libération d’une avocate dracénoise », a conclu Me Schreck.

Iran/France: Caroline Vigneaux – Libérez Nasrin Sotoudeh

le 26 juin, 2019

L’avocate iranienne Nasrin Sotoudeh a été condamnée à 148 coups de fouet et 38 ans de prison. Son amie l’humoriste Caroline Vigneaux prend sa défense.

Fini de rire : Caroline Vigneaux prend tres au serieux le sort reserve a l'avocate iranienne Nasrin Sotoudeh.

C’est le début de l’été 2018. Je suis à Ispahan, en Iran. Je sirote un Spritz rafraîchissant, me prélasse au soleil après une passionnante visite du titanesque palais Ali Qâpou. Ce n’est pas ma boisson qui m’enivre – il m’en faut un peu plus –, mais le tourbillon de souvenirs que je viens d’accumuler au cours des derniers jours. Quelle beauté ! Et qu’on se sent petit devant tant d’Histoire ! L’Iran du XXIe siècle vibre au même rythme que la Perse du XVIIe, animée de mille et une couleurs.

En face de moi, mon amie s’évente de la main en remontant ses lunettes de soleil sur son crâne ; elles se noient dans sa dense chevelure brune. Elle me sourit et se redresse pour regarder la place Naghch-e Djahan. Je l’observe. Le profil de Nasrin est le reflet exact de son caractère : son nez droit, son menton saillant, son front conquérant… C’est une femme déterminée, tournée vers l’avenir, emplie d’espoir. Le genre de personnes qu’on se félicite de connaître, car la voir être, l’observer agir offrent une source d’inspiration inépuisable.

Moi non plus, je ne suis pas épuisée. Malgré les kilomètres parcourus,des ruines de Persépolis au désert des Kaluts, je suis contaminée par l’énergie contagieuse de Nasrin. Ensemble, nous nous sommes perdues dans le plus grand bazar du monde, à Téhéran, entre les étoffes vives, portées par l’odeur entêtante du cuir tanné et des épices. Ensemble, nous avons admiré la roche noire dans le désert du Dasht-e Lut, les dunes à perte de vue… Ensemble, nous avons respiré l’air frais de la montagne, au-dessus du village rouge d’Abyaneh.

Morocco/Spain: Sahara : Morocco expels seven people, including five Spanish lawyers

May 20, 2019

Five Spanish lawyers were expelled, Sunday, by the Moroccan authorities after they arrived at Laayoune airport, Europa Press reports.

Maria Dolores Travieso, a lawyer defended pro-Polisario activist Aminatou Haidar in the past, Ruth Sebastian Garcia, Lourdes Baron, Ramon Campos and Sidi Mohamed Taleb Buya were accompanied by two Norwegian observers from an NGO called Rafto, said the agency.

These seven people went to the Sahara as «observers for the trial of Nezha Khalidi, who is affiliated to Equipe Media group in Laayoune».

The decision of the Moroccan authorities was denounced, Sunday, by pro-Polisario platform Futuro Sahara.

On Thursday, New York-based NGO Human Rights Watch (HRW) slammed the Moroccan authorities in a statement, for «using a law designed to keep people from falsely claiming professional credentials to bring criminal charges against people trying to expose abuses».

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.

Turkey: Lawyers Associations join forces to raise concern for the rule of law and the legal profession in Turkey for the Day of the Endangered Lawyer

January 24, 2019

The Bar Human Rights Committee of England and Wales (BHRC) has joined ten other Bar Associations, Law Societies and Legal Organisations in a joint declaration concerning the breakdown of the rule of law and serious threats against the independence of Judges, Lawyers, and Prosecutors in Turkey.

The declaration marks the 9th annual Day of the Endangered Lawyer and, along with BHRC, includes Abogacía Española – Consejo General, Geneva Bar Association–Human Rights Commission, German Bar Association–Human Rights Committee, European Bar Human Rights Institute, Paris Bar Human Rights Institute, International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute, International Observatory for endangered lawyers, Law Society of England and Wales, Lawyers for Lawyers, and Norwegian Bar Association–Human Rights Committee.

The Day of the Endangered Lawyer was founded and is organised by the Foundation for the Day of the Endangered Lawyer based in Harrlem, the Netherlands. The 24th of January was chosen to be the annual International Day of the Endangered Lawyer because on this day in 1977 four lawyers and a co-worker were murdered at their office in Madrid, Spain. This was also known as the Massacre of Atocha.

The Day honours lawyers across the world who put themselves at risk in the fight for human rights and the rule of law. It aims to create awareness that the practice of the legal profession in many countries involves significant risks, but also to denounce the situation in a particular country where lawyers are victims of serious violations of their fundamental rights because of the exercise of their profession. Each year, the persecution of lawyers in a particular country is highlighted, and the Foundation coordinates activities outside of the country’s embassies around the world. Previous Days of the Endangered Lawyer have expressed concern for lawyers in Iran (2010), Turkey (2012), Basque Country/Spain (2013), Colombia (2014), the Philippines (2015), Honduras (2016), China (2017) and Egypt (2018).

In line with the focus for the Day of the Endangered Lawyer for 2019, the joint declaration expressed its concern for lawyers in Turkey:

#DayoftheEndangeredLawyer

 

La Fundación Jesús Pereda junto a CCOO de Zamora y de Palencia mantienen viva la “Memoria de Atocha”, el asesinato hace ya 42 años de cinco abogados laboralistas de CCOO y del PCE por parte de un grupo de pistoleros de extrema derecha.
Una conversación con Alejandro Ruiz-Huerta, uno de las cuatro personas supervivientes, recuperará el significado de aquellos hechos dramáticos y ofrecerá una mirada sindical al presente y hacia el futuro.
Será en Zamora el 28 de enero a las 11h00 y en Palencia ese mismo día a las 19h00, en las respectivas sedes de CCOO.

(Fundación Jesús Pereda de CCOO CyL Facebook, 22/01/19)
