法律界選委就中國律師被大規模拘捕、羈留及失蹤發出聲明

( 編按:選舉委員會30名法律界選委,就中國律師近日被大規模拘捕、羈留及失蹤的事件,今天發出的聲明,全文如下。)

我們作為法律專業從業員及選舉委員會法律界代表對在中國發生的大規模拘捕,羈留律師及律師的失蹤表示極度關注。

全世界的法律專業人士均有維護法律,保障其當事人的憲法權利及自由的責任。律師們應為爭取客戶的權益而受到保護,而非受到迫害。對律師作為一個目標群體的正面衝擊是對法律及法治的襲擊。法治亦是任何現代社會的基石。

我們與在彼岸的專業弟兄姊妹站在同一陣線要求個人的憲法權利得到尊重,而法律專業人士能夠在沒有恐懼之下執行他們的職務。

【Statement issued by the Legal ECs in relation to the mass arrest, detention and disappearance of lawyers in China】

We as members of the legal profession and as elected representatives of the legal sub-sector of the Election Committee are gravely concerned and alarmed at the mass arrest, detention and disappearance of lawyers in China.

Legal professionals all over the world have a duty to uphold the law, and protect the constitutional rights and freedoms of their clients. Lawyers should be protected and not persecuted for standing up for the rights of their clients. The frontal attack of lawyers as a target group is an assault on the law and the rule of law which is the cornerstone of any modern society.

We stand with our professional brothers and sisters across the border to demand that the constitutional rights of individuals be respected and that legal professionals be allowed to discharge their duty without fear.
