Lawyers Guild claims NATO activists “disappeared” without warrant or charges

 

(Lee Klawans)   According to an interview with National Lawyers Guild (NLG) spokesman Kris Hermes, Chicago police officers raided a Bridgeport apartment complex on Wednesday evening without a valid warrant and detained up to nine people without cause.

The NLG is working in Chicago this week sending monitors to protests at the NATO Summit 2012 to insure activists rights are not violated. They are also functioning as lawyers for anyone detained during the week’s activities.

The NLG worked through the night to locate the arrested activists. They were unable to get any information from the Chicago Police Department (CPD) or even any acknowledgement that a raid had taken place.

“We’ve called police officials at every level trying to find out where they were being held. We were denied any information at all about any people being arrested, let alone a raid happening last night. So essentially these people were disappeared for more than 12 hours until we could finally locate them,” said NLG spokesman Kris Hermes.

They were found at the CPD Organized Crime Division police station lock up at 3340 W. Fillmore St. on the West Side.

Lawyers from The NLG were allowed to meet with nine individuals and reported that they were in low spirits, confused about why they were arrested and shackled at both their hands and feet at the meeting. No charges have been filed against them almost 24 hours after their arrest and an Illinois States Attorney at the station refused to meet with the NLG lawyers.

  • After reviewing the article in the Examiner, what happened to the National Lawyers Guild, only confirms my suspicions. In Philadelphia, there are people dissapearing every day due to police action. They’re not lawyers or activist, they’re generallly working class people, white, black, etc., who can not afford lawyers and make bail. When I read your article, Popeye, I can only say that our country has really descended into a third world republic. Point the finger at Washington, DC. They set the legal precedent for these unconstitutional actions. Keep in mind HR 437 or 347, the NDAA;it’s all leading to eventual martial law.

  • is the National Lawyers Guild a branch of the London Lawyers Guild like the American Bar Association? The Chicago Port Authority and Maritime Law and this presents a potential rat nest made of U.S. Constitutional law. I am puzzled about this.
