STATEMENT

We
strongly condemn the malicious and motivated campaign
against human rights activists and their lawyers struggling
for justice for the victims of the genocidal carnage in
Gujarat in 2002.

The
patently false allegations of doctoring evidence are being
orchestrated at a time when crucial trials are nearing
competition and accused among whom are powerful politicians
and policemen face charges of criminal conspiracy and
murder.

The
allegations against Teesta Setalvad secretary Citizens for
Justice and Peace and the organisation she represents as
well as advocate Sohail Tirmizi a lawyer who has fought
tirelessly for justice were spearheaded first by the state
of Gujarat, then fuelled by a former employee.

The
timings of the malafide allegations are aimed at derailing
the course of justice and come at a time when the apex court
is poised to hear a complaint of conspiracy to commit mass
murder, subversion of justice and destruction of evidence.

The
brazen attempts need to be seen for what they are given the
seriousness of the charges against the Gujarat state and its
functionaries.
