Opposed to the proposed reform of the judicial map which is a threat to the court of appeal of Agen, the union of young lawyers (UJA) Agen has launched on Wednesday with a call to action.
In the margins of a day of action scheduled for the beginning of January, the association wants to raise the awareness of elected representatives, the world economic and legal but also the citizens to the impact of the disappearance of the court of appeal for the territory.
“today, it is not clear what is precisely the guideline of this reform. If it simply comes down to an adherence to the judicial map on the administrative map, the individuals will be away from lawyers and judges, not to speak of the extension of time to audiencement, which is already an infringement of the fundamental rights”, pointed Me Sarah Vasseur, president of the UJA Agen.
Extending the mobilization
“While this reform is announced for a little while, our representatives have a first meeting at the Chancery in mid-December, and the conclusions of the report will be filed on the 15th January. It is essential to expand our engagement to reaffirm that we want to keep a court of appeal exercised in full, in Agen,” says Me Yasmira Gargat, executive vice-president.
The lawyers are also on strike on Wednesday.
