The Legal Centre, located in the heart of the Calais slum and created on the Calais’ Appeal initiative that gathers more than 50 000 signatories, invites you to a press conference on Friday, February 12th at 11:00 am, at our office, to bring you up to date with the appalling rise of very serious assaults against migrants by both militias and the police.
As part of our legal consultations (several hundred), numerous complaints and testimonials (more than fifty involving hundreds of victims) were reported. We now intend to hand them over to justice as quickly as possible.
During this press conference, we will unveil places and methods used by aggressors together with case examples, as well as the severity of injuries suffered by migrants, as recorded by medical profession and our team.
Interested in refugee law? You might like Colin's book, imaginatively called "Refugee Law" and published by Bristol University Press.
Communicating important legal concepts in an approachable way, this is an essential guide for students, lawyers and non-specialists alike.
Your responsiveness will be much appreciated regarding the scale of the assaults, the nature of their authors and the emergency of the situation.
