MEDEL

Once again MEDEL marks the 23rd of May as the Alert Day for the Independence of Justice, remembering that the independence of the Judiciary is the cornerstone of any free and democratic society.

Another year has passed and the challenges to the Rule of Law have increased in number and intensity.

A terrible war has started in Europe and images we all thought had been forever relegated to history books are back in front of everyone’s eyes – innocent civilians suffering the horrors of war and flagrant violations of international and humanitarian law. MEDEL calls for the urgent and immediate removal of all obstacles to the existence of a true international criminal justice, capable of thoroughly investigating and bringing to justice those responsible for such atrocities.

Interview of Monika Frąckowiak to "Le Soir"Monika Frackowiak, membre du bureau de MEDEL, à "Le Soir":
« A l’automne, Ursula von der Leyen avait fixé trois conditions à la Pologne, dont celle de réintégrer les juges destitués. A ce moment-là, il y en avait trois, aujourd’hui, il y en a sept. »
« Tous les projets de loi sur la table ne vont faire qu’aggraver la situation. »

Quelle place pour l’avocat au cœur du droit européen ? Comment les outils du droit de l’Union européenne protègent-ils les justiciables ? C’est autour de ces questions et de bien d’autres que se sont réunis la Délégation des Barreaux de France et ses partenaires le 10 février dernier à la Maison du barreau, à Paris, à l’occasion de la Présidence française du Conseil de l’Union européenne. L’occasion pour nous de rencontrer des acteurs incontournables de l’écosystème juridique et judiciaire européen. Dans cet épisode Filipe Marques, Président de l’association des magistrats européens pour la démocratie et les libertés (MEDEL).
