Lawyers and barristers Saint-Étienne and Roanne are outraged and condemn the publication of a far-right website, after it drew up “a list of lawyers to be eliminated and exterminated” illustrated with unmistakable visuals.

This list, published on July 3, targets 97 lawyers who signed a platform against the National Rally.

On July 2, these lawyers – members of the Paris, Caen, Strasbourg and Montpellier bars – announced that they were forming a “Law Brigade Against the National Rally “, in the event of victory of the far-right party in the second round of the legislative elections, Sunday July 7.

Call for the murder of lawyers: “words of extreme violence and gravity”

The Rhône-Alpes Bar Association Conferencechaired by Me Adeline Tillier, vice-president of the Roanne bar – the latter specifying that “Black dresses won’t be intimidated” – but also the Saint-Étienne and Roanne bar have strongly condemned ““words of extreme violence and gravity”.

For the president of the Saint-Etienne order, Mr François Paquet-Cauet, “lWhen lawyers are attacked, fundamental freedoms are attacked.”

Lawyers, guarantors of fundamental rights

In a motion specific to each instance, the profession affirms its support for “unconditionally the colleagues specifically targeted by these threats”, reaffirming that “Lawyers will always fight for freedom of expression, the defense of individual liberties and the rule of law.”

Without being intimidated and while remaining “guarantors of fundamental rights.”
