The CLHRF once again strongly denounces
the arbitrary detention of Dr. Mohammed Moghrabi by the Lebanese Syrian-appointed
government that lasted for 21 days.
Dr. Moghrabi's conditional release on
29/8/03, that harshly dictated a ban on him practicing law, is another horrible atrocity
that is unjustly inflicted on this world renowned Human Rights Activist. This condition
has no legal grounds and no acceptable civilized ethical or moral justifications.
The CLHRF understands this banning
condition as an unconscionable Stalinist crime committed against Dr. Moghrabi's successful
professional performance as a lawyer. With cold blood and without conscience the Beirut
puppet regime is evilly trying to assassinate Dr. Moghrabi's human rights services
of advocacy that he offers to hundreds of innocent victims every year.
According to Lebanese law Dr. Moghrabi is
entitled to continue to practice his profession as a lawyer until a court of law such as
the Court of Appeal decides otherwise.
The CLHRF considers the whole case that
has been fabricated against Dr. Moghrabi to be a political taming and intimidation
maneuver based on venomous grudges, lack of tolerance and hatred.
The CLHRF calls on all the countries of
the free world and all human rights international and local organizations to put pressure
on the Lebanese Syrian installed regime to drop all charges submitted against Dr.
Moghrabi, and to fully respect and safeguards his rights as a professional lawyer and
practicing human rights advocate.
