We denounce this publication which directly undermines the independence of the lawyer and the free choice by any person of his defender. Any assimilation of the lawyer to the alleged offense and to the litigant whom he must defend must be fought with force in that it calls into question the fundamental right to a fair trial from which everyone benefits, in all matters.
We give our full support to our colleague and have a special thought for all the victims of the attacks of November 13 also instrumentalized by this publication.
