Supreme Court has overturned previous ruling over Shamima Begum’s right to return to the UK to participate in her case.

The right to a fair trial protects all of us. Stripping someone’s citizenship without due process sets a dangerous precedent.
Citizenship-stripping is among the most extreme powers available to Gov. Making someone stateless is against international law.

Gov say Shamima Begum is eligible for Bangladeshi citizenship.

She was born in UK and has never held a Bangladeshi passport.…
The right to a #fairtrial is not something democratic Govs should take away on a whim and nor is someone’s British citizenship.

If a Gov is allowed to wield extreme powers like banishment without the basic safeguards of a fair trial it sets an extremely dangerous precedent.

Why is the right to fair trial important?
Who has the right to fair trial?
What role does media play?

Your questions answered.

The right to #fairtrial operates under the concept of innocent until proven guilty. ImageImage
Media agencies must definitely play a role in holding justice mechanisms accountable, but they are NOT a substitute for a fair and effective legal process.

Spent the day at Capitol yesterday, joining brave warriors from @Remove_TrumpNow @lawyers4goodgov in calling for #FairTrial

After delivering more than 1,000 of your letters to 80+ senators on Capitol Hill last week, we felt inspired and compelled to share your words via a new website:
As we read these letters, we witnessed a nation both refusing to be torn apart by personal ideologies and petitioning Congress to do likewise. This display of devotion to democracy has buoyed us up in our effort to take back the power of our individual voices and make them heard.
These genuine and personal letters are from citizens across the political spectrum who show a deep love and concern for our country and its citizens — and a hope for healing our partisan divide through the search for truth.

Extreme polarization in politics & life in general, a sense of community is what's needed.
The seemingly never ending scandals of the Catholic church, the fleecing by Megachurches, & attacks on Temples + Mosques contribute to our current climate of hate & institutional mistrust.
If ANY religion behaves like a business perhaps they should be taxed like a business.
I was born & raised Catholic, am an atty, & I love, no, I revere our Constitution.
Our 1st Amendment was written in part, as a remedy to the (perceived or true) digressions of est. religions.
The behavior, in this case, of the Catholic church would've horrified our founders.
Scientology, which is an alleged de facto cult, forbidding ppl to leave, using ppl as slaves, & ignoring reports of it's own sexual assault problems, IMO, shouldn't be allowed to so act TAX FREE!

A thread on some quotes from @gautambhatia88’s “The transformative constitution “In equality jurisprudence, the approach of focusing on the disproportionately exclusionary impact if politics rather than their formal character or motive is known as disparate impact”
“It is based on the premise that inequality and discrimination result not (only) from individual hostile acts, but from structures and institutions.” @gautambhatia88 Only in brackets important & added by me.
An test for entry may be “neutral” but yet exclude by aligning with exclusionary institutions; if an physical entrance test for firefighter includes activities not necessary for fulfilling duties and unintentionally poses #gender-barriers, deserves to be struck down. #NoteToSelf

Delighted to be in New York for the launch of #Trialwatch with brilliant @BarHumanRights colleagues @stephencragg1 & @SamuelZimran. BHRC conducts independent trial monitoring across many countries & we value the spotlight brought by trial observations.

Do say hi if you are here!
After a touch of stardust, the #Trialwatch panel has kicked off with a heavyweight #JournalismShouldNotBeACrime panel @MFFahmy11 @cdeloire @jrezaian @JameelJaffer @mariaressa chaired by Helena Kennedy QC. Chilling to hear experiences of journalists imprisoned. Why are they there?
As @MFFahmy11 talks about watching the world from the cage in the Egyptian courtroom, wondering whether the world is watching, a reminder why trial monitoring is so important. @BarHumanRights has monitored trials in Egypt and has raised concerns too on #fairtrials #cages.

EU Court’s Adv-Gen opinion on #Poland #FairTrial case is out. Thread to follow…
Irish High Court was asked by Polish Gov to extradite Mr Celmer under EU law for trial on drug charges. Irish judge ruled Poland’s Gov has seriously undermined rule of law by taking political control over judges (agreeing with Euro Commission) 2/
So Irish Court asked Court of Justice of EU to rule on # approach Irish Court should take. AG opinion is advice to CJEU on how CJEU should rule. Mostly CJEU takes that advice, but not always. 3/
