Muhanad al-Hasani

In a joint letter to the Syrian Bar Association (also in Arabic), L4L and Lawyers’ Rights Watch Canada (LRWC) called upon the Bar Association to annul the disbarment-for-life of Muhanad al-Hasani. By doing so, it would reconfirm the decision taken by the Syrian authorities in June 2011 to release Al-Hasani, and enable Al-Hasani to finally continue his work after having spent two years in detention.

L4L and LRWC also urged the Bar Association and its local branches, in coherence with the obligations binding upon them, to give more and visible support to suppressed lawyers. The pressure on lawyers in Syria is still increasing. Lawyers take part in protests throughout the country to support their colleagues in detention. On several occasions, lawyers have assaulted or even arrested during or after having participated in the peaceful protests. Some of the arrested lawyers have been tortured during their detention. The Bar Association seems to renounce its primary responsibility, the protection of its members.

L4L arranged a letter writing campaign. Click here for the letters that were send.
