Verschlechterung der Arbeitsbedingungen von Radhia Nasraoui

Für die Anwältin selbst hat sich die Situation nicht verbessert. Sie ist immer noch in ihrer Bewegungsfreiheit (darf Tunis nicht verlassen) eingeschränkt.

Hinzu kommt eine deutliche Verschlechterung in bezug auf ihr Engagement als Rechtsanwältin. Das Justizministerium verweigert ihr die Besuchserlaubnis zu den Klienten, die sich im Gefängnis befinden. Damit wird es Radhia äußerst schwer gemacht, eine gute Verteidigung für ihre Klienten aufzubauen.

Was können Sie tun?

Erinnern Sie den tunesischen Justizminister an die UN-Empfehlungen der "Grundprinzipien über die Rolle von Anwälten"! Fordern Sie bei der Gelegenheit auch wieder einmal die Annullierung des Urteils gegen Radhia Nasraoui ein!

Dear Minister,

I was very astonished to hear that the Tunisian Ministry of Justice has denied Radhia Nasraoui visiting permits to the prisons where her clients are being held.

Please allow me to remind you on the recommendations set out in the "Basis principles on the Role of Lawyers", adopted by the Eighth United Nations Congress on the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders, Havana, Cuba, 27 August to 7 September 1990:

"16. Governments shall ensure that lawyers (a) are able to perform all of their professional functions without intimidation, hindrance, harassment or improper interference; (b) are able to travel and to consult with their clients freely both within their own country and abroad: and (c) shall not suffer, or be threatened with, prosecution or administrative, economic or other sanctions for any action taken in accordance with recognized professional duties, standards and ethics. 19. No court or administrative authority before whom the right to counsel is recognized shall refuse to recognize the right of a lawyer to appear before it for his or her client unless that lawyer has been disqualified in accordance with national law and practice and in conformity with these principles."

I thus urge to enable for Radhia Nasraoui and other lawyers to collect permits for themselves and for other lawyers from the Ministry of Justice, as it was the case until recently.

Finally, I call on you to annul the sentence against Radhia Nasraoui and to lift the restrictions which curtail her profession. I urge that the harassment to which she and her family are subjected is put to an end.

Yours sincerely,
