Fearing for the safety of his kin, Aasia Bibi’s counsel Saiful Malook has approached the United Nations to ensure his family’s security.

Aasia Bibi had been acquitted by the Supreme Court off blasphemy charges on October 31. The decision sparked countrywide demonstrations with protesters, led by Tehreek-e-Labbaik (TLP), threatening the state, army and judiciary.

The violent protests forced Malook to board a plane to the Netherlands on November 3. He told The Express Tribune about threats from sections of lawyers and it is difficult for him to practice in the prevailing situation.

“In the current scenario, it’s not possible for me to live in Pakistan,” the 62-year-old told AFP. “I need to stay alive as I still have to fight the legal battle for Aasia Bibi.”

Malook is currently in The Hague and has hinted on seeking political asylum.

Speaking to The Express Tribune, Malook expressed concerns about his family’s safety in Pakistan. He said he had written to the UN office in Pakistan seeking security for his family. Malook was dismayed at the inadequate security provided to his family by the authorities.

De spanningen in Pakistan lopen hoog op. Asia Bibi’s advocaat Saif-ul-Malook en de drie rechters van het Hooggerechtshof die haar hebben vrijgesproken, ontvangen doodsbedreigingen. De organisatie ‘Defence of Pakistan’ heeft een rechtszaak aangekondigd tegen de advocaat en de drie rechters. De Pakistaanse organisatie beschuldigt ook hen van godslastering.

De mullah’s van de grootste politieke partijen organiseren demonstraties om te eisen dat premier Imran Khan onthult waar Asia nu is. Scholen in Lahore zijn eerder gesloten vanwege de onrust.

Pakistan/The Netherlands/UK: Lawyer of Asia Bibi: Don’t deprive me of my honour

ANP-65520648

For lawyer Saif-ul-Malook (62) the Asia Bibi-affair far and wide is the most delicate matter with which he had to deal during his time as a jurist. „As I took this affair upon me, it felt as putting on a bomb jacket. To declare oneself a lawyer of the most well-known suspect of blasphemy in Pakistan stands equal to suicide.”

He looks energetic, the lawyer of Asia Bibi, the Pakistani Christian who in 2010 was sentenced to death. After the Supreme Court had recalled the judgement at Wednesday, Malook left his home country at Saturday. Shortly after he had spoken to the international media at The Hague Monday afternoon, he takes some time for an interview.

Malook, short in stature, looks with a penetrating view from above the rim of his glasses. “Just pose questions to me, I have time, even if it takes me three, four hours. The fact that I am now in the Netherlands is part of my vocation, for if I hadn’t been a lawyer, I wouldn’t have been here. I have lost my freedom, but not my self-regard and not the respect from the Western world for my role in the Bibi-affair too, as I hope.”

Malook became involved in the affair on the position of Christians in his country after the murder on the governor of the province of Punjab, Salman Taseer, in 2011. This politician plead for abolishing the notorious blasphemy laws. In Pakistan, these are applied frequently to condemn Christians and other minorities because of doubtful accusations.

Pakistan/The Netherlands: Aasia Bibi’s lawyer seeks refuge in Netherlands

November 5, 2018

Saif-ul-Malook fled to the Netherlands following threats to his life after Christian woman he represented was acquitted.

Aasia Bibi's lawyer seeks refuge in Netherlands

The agreement between the Pakistani government and a far-right political group that would see a Christian woman acquitted of blasphemy barred from leaving the country has no legal value, her lawyer, who has sought refuge in the Netherlands, said.

Aasia Bibi, a Christian woman accused of blasphemy, spent eight years on death row after being convicted by lower courts.

Last week, the Pakistani Supreme Court acquitted Bibi, saying there were “glaring and stark” contradictions in the evidence against her.

Saif-ul-Malook, who represented Bibi for years, told Al Jazeera he fled to the Netherlands on Saturday following threats to his life.

On Monday, Bibi’s lawyer Malook addressed the press conference alongside Jan Dirk van Nifterik, the director of the Dutch rights group Stichting Hulp Vervolgde Christenen (HVC, or Foundation to Help Persecuted Christians), who said that they had aided him in his escape from Pakistan.

Pakistan blasphemy case: Bibi’s lawyer flees country amid furore

“HVC was able to get him to the Netherlands, offer shelter and look after him,” said Nifterik. “We are grateful to Malook for his work on human rights.”

Malook said he took Bibi’s case because lawyers “do not have a religion”.

“[Lawyers] only … fight for justice, and only see that no one should be condemned unless there is evidence up to the standard.”

Malook said that he had no information on whether Bibi had been released from jail, saying the last time he spoke to a senior jail official about the matter – on Friday night – she remained in custody.

Malook himself faced numerous threats for representing Bibi, whose case has become emblematic of fair trial concerns in such cases in Pakistan.

Blasphemy is a sensitive subject in the country, and at least 74 people have been killed in violence associated with blasphemy allegations since 1990, according to an Al Jazeera tally.

Malook said that he spent days taking refuge at the French Embassy in Islamabad, before he was able to fly out early on Saturday morning.

He flew through Italy, before finally arriving in the Netherlands, he said.

The lawyer indicated that he was currently on a visit visa, but that he would be staying in the European country for an unspecified length of time. He said he would call his wife and children to join him “when I have a place for them to live”.

Pakistan/The Netherlands/UK: Blasphemy lawyer flees after Pakistan capitulates to extremists

November 5, 2018

The lawyer for a Christian woman cleared of blasphemy after spending eight years on death row in Pakistan has fled the country and her husband has asked Britain, the US and Canada to grant the family asylum.

Saif-ul-Mulook feared for his safety after the Supreme Court ­acquittal of Asia Bibi on Wednesday infuriated hardline Islamists, who held nationwide protests demanding her execution.

“In the current scenario, it’s not possible for me to live in Pakistan,” the 62-year-old lawyer said before boarding a plane to Europe on Saturday. “I need to stay alive as I still have to fight the legal battle for Asia Bibi.”

Ms Bibi’s husband, Ashiq Masih, called for Britain to grant the mother and their family refuge amid fears for their safety.

In a video, he says: “I am requesting the Prime Minister of the UK help us and as far as possible grant us freedom.”

Speaking in Punjabi, he also called for asylum from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and US President Donald Trump.

The lawyer said the Islamist outcry was “unfortunate but not unexpected”. “What’s painful is the response of the government. They cannot even implement an order of the country’s highest court,” he said, adding that “the struggle for justice must continue”.

Dawn, the country’s oldest newspaper, in an editorial on Saturday blasted the deal as “another surrender”. “Yet another government has capitulated to violent ­religious extremists who neither believe in democracy, nor the constitution,” it read.

Mr Mulook said last week that he would have to leave Pakistan because the followers of hardline cleric Khadim Hussain Rizvi had threatened to kill him as well as the judges who acquitted Ms Bibi.

On 19 June, representatives from the EU Delegation to Thailand and Embassies of Sweden, the Netherlands, France and the US observed an indictment hearing of the case of Ms. Sirikan Charoensiri, a human rights lawyer. The purpose of the hearing was to establish whether she would be charged with concealing evidence and refusing to comply with an order, after she refused to allow the authorities to conduct a warrantless search of her car, which contained her clients’ information and consequently should be protected by the lawyer-client privilege.

Egypt/Day of the Endangered Lawyer: Nederland

23/01/18

NOTEER IN DE NIEUWE AGENDA: 24 JANUARI
DAG VAN DE BEDREIGDE ADVOCAAT

EGYPTE: PIRAMIDES, DUIKEN…EN BEDREIGDE ADVOCATEN

Egypte heeft twee gezichten. Een prachtige vakantiebestemming. Maar ook een land van contrasten en conflicten. De mensenrechten en de onafhankelijkheid van de rechtspraak komen voortdurend onder druk. Ook de situatie van advocaten verslechtert in een rap tempo. Een groot aantal advocaten werd de afgelopen jaren gearresteerd in verband met hun werkzaamheden. Daarom staat de jaarlijkse ‘Dag van de bedreigde advocaat’ op 24 januari 2018 in het teken van Egypte. Met een manifestatie en lezing in Den Haag. Betuig je steun, ben erbij!

Gezamenlijk springen de stichting De Dag van de Bedreigde Advocaat en Lawyers for Lawyers die dag op de bres voor hun Egyptische collega’s. Met een demonstratie voor de rechtbank in Den Haag en een seminar, waarvoor Lawyers for Lawyers de bekende advocate Mahienour El-Massry (1986) heeft uitgenodigd. Deze jonge Egyptische advocate is gekend vanwege haar niet aflatende inzet voor de mensenrechten en kritische houding jegens het militaire regime in haar land.

We rekenen op jouw solidariteit én aanwezigheid op 24 januari.

PROGRAMMA

15.00 Manifestatie en aanbieden petitie, komt allen al dan niet in toga!
