Al-Hasakah: Participation in candlelight vigil leads to disciplinary proceedings against attorney

KURDWATCH, September 8, 2011—On September 4, 2011, the al-Hasakah bar association opened disciplinary proceedings against the attorney and human rights activist Faisal Badr (b. 1963, married, four children). The assumed reason for the proceedings is Badr´s participation in a candlelight vigil organized by attorneys in al-Hasakah in protest, among other things, against the bar association´s persecution of oppositional attorneys. In an interview with the television station al-Arabiya, Badr had commented publicly on the candlelight vigil.
