La France et la Belgique vont renforcer leur coopération en matière de suivi et de prise en charge des détenus radicalisés et envisagent une harmonisation entre leurs services respectifs sur les modalités de signalement de ceux qui sortent de prison, a déclaré lundi Edouard Philippe.
« Nos deux pays doivent anticiper dès aujourd’hui et ensemble la sortie des détenus condamnés pour des infractions terroristes en lien avec l’islam radical ainsi que celles des détenus de droit commun » radicalisés, a dit le Premier ministre français à l’issue d’une réunion de coopération franco-belge sur la sécurité et lutte contre le terrorisme à Paris.
« La perspective de cette fin de peine constitue un défi majeur et inédit pour nos administrations pénitentiaires, nos autorités judiciaires, et nos services de renseignement« , a-t-il ajouté lors d’une conférence de presse aux côtés de son homologue belge Charles Michel.
Pour relever ce défi, les administrations française et belge vont approfondir leur coopération pour renforcer le suivi et la prise en charge des détenus radicalisés, a-t-il dit. Paris et Bruxelles proposent également « de réfléchir à une harmonisation entre services français et belge des modalités de signalement des détenus radicalisés sortant de prison dans le système d’information Schengen« .
450 détenus radicalisés et une cinquantaine de terroristes sortiront des prisons françaises d’ici fin 2019
Selon les autorités françaises, près de 450 détenus de droit commun radicalisés et une cinquantaines de condamnés pour terrorisme sortiront de prison d’ici fin 2019.
Face à l’inquiétude suscitée par la perspective de leur sortie, la ministre française de la Justice a assuré la semaine dernière que ces détenus feraient l’objet d’un suivi spécifique mettant notamment à contribution l’ensemble des services de renseignement pénitentiaire et intérieurs français. La question des sortants de prison radicalisés préoccupe également la Belgique où deux policières et un passant ont été tués le 29 mai à Liège par un délinquant qui venait de sortir de prison où il s’était apparemment radicalisé.

Belgium: 28 radicalised prisoners will be released from prison this year – specialists sound the alarm

Cet article a été aussi publié en : frFrançais (French) deDeutsch (German) esEspañol (Spanish) itItaliano (Italian) nlNederlands (Dutch)

28 radicalized inmates will be released from prison this year. There may be others because there is always the possibility of parole. Already, 76 prisoners with radical profiles left prison in 2017. They are mostly the most extremist. They belong to the heaviest category. They are all on the list of the anti-terrorist organization (OCAD) or the internal prison service that monitors extremists.
This may sound absurd, but many mayors do not even know when radicalised prisoners will come out of prison to stay in their community. There is a total improvisation in the management of releases of radicalised prisoners and their accompaniment once out of jail. However, the management of radicalized prisoners does not tolerate approximation. More professionalism is urgently needed.

Yemen: A military assault on Hodeidah will almost certainly have catastrophic humanitarian impact

Cet article a été aussi publié en : frFrançais (French) arالعربية (Arabic)

A bloody battle just ahead
Yemeni government forces, supported by the Arab Coalition, are preparing to launch an assault on Hodeida, a strategically important port on the Red Sea. This is not the port through which international aid and, according to the Yemeni government and the Coalition, Iranian arms are delivered to the Shiite Houthi rebels.
The problem is that the region is densely populated – about 600,000 inhabitants and displaced. However, the government forces do not seem to be in a position to win quickly over their adversaries, which means that the battle is likely to drag on, making the port inoperable. This means that the blockade of the areas controlled by the Shiite rebels will worsen, which suggests an explosion of the humanitarian catastrophe, already one of the worst the world has known.
For its part, the Arab Coalition draws attention to the risks posed by the Houthis to shipping in the Red Sea, an international communication route of vital importance, at least for Europe. Already, Houthi rebels have repeatedly attacked Saudi oil tankers off Hodeida. It is therefore unlikely that both sides will pay any attention to the UN’s calls for restraint.

UN sounds alarm on Hodeida
Humanitarian agencies in Yemen are deeply worried by the likely impact of a possible military assault on the port city of Hodeidah. The UN and its partners estimate that as many as 600,000 civilians are currently living in and around Hodeidah.
“A military attack or siege on Hodeidah will impact hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians,” said Ms. Lise Grande, the Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen. “Humanitarian organisations have rushed to develop a contingency plan. In a prolonged worst case, we fear that as many as 250,000 people may lose everything— even their lives.”
In addition to being one of Yemen’s most densely populated areas, Hodeidah is the single most important point of entry for the food and basic supplies needed to prevent famine and a recurrence of a cholera epidemic. Close to 70 percent of Yemen’s imports, including commercial and humanitarian goods, enter through the ports of Hodeidah and Saleef, just to the north of Hodeidah.
Our top priority is helping to ensure the 22 million Yemenis who need some form of humanitarian aid and protection receive the assistance they need,” said Ms. Grande. “Cutting off imports through Hodeidah for any length of time will put Yemen’s population at extreme, unjustifiable risk.”
Across the country, people are desperate for food, medical help and protection. This is why humanitarian organisations have dramatically ramped up the amount of assistance we are providing. Yemen is already the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. With so many lives at stake, absolutely everything has to be done by the parties to the conflict to protect civilians and ensure they have the assistance they need to survive,” said Ms. Grande.
The UN and partners are requesting USD 3 billion through the 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan to support 22.2 million people in need. To date, USD 1.5 billion, half of resources necessary for the year, has been received.
