Amal Clooney meets Secretary of State Jeremy Hunt in London 12.12.2018

The case of the two Reuters journalists imprisoned for exposing the Rohingya crisis sends a chilling message. Journalism must never be a crime, as Jeremy Hunt discussed with Amal Clooney who is doing a great job representing Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo.

Jeremy Richard Streynsham Hunt (born 1 November 1966) is a British Conservative Party politician serving as Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs since 2018 and Member of Parliament (MP) for South West Surrey since 2005.

  1. Jeremy Hunt is also the idiot who in-famously mistook Japan for China (when referring to his wife’s birth country!!!) and who irreparably contributed for Brexit negotiations going downhill steeply by comparing the EU to a USSR prison – and never even having the guts to excuse for his extremely tasteless aberration. He is also a vivid supporter of limiting immigration, hence opposing the very segment of society Amal and her family represent. If they applied for asylumn these days, not decades ago – they would not have been accepted.

    What on earth drives Amal to meet with such british ‘dignitaries’? She tarnishes her professional and personal reputation.

    1. All good points. But I think Amal is pretty single minded about her specific purpose of getting the journalists freed. ANd if Jeremy Hunt can help advance that, she’ll go meet him. At the level where she and Hunt are you do you and dont worry about reputations. Amal’s work is pretty stellar and Hunt’s not going to die from his mistakes.

      1. It’s not clear what the background is for this meeting and photo op. I think the context is important to have.

        What has been clear to me viewing Amal’s “work” via the internet is that she does not do trial work or nuts and bolts legal work on cases. What she does is PR via the media. I would be curious why you think this qualifies as stellar.. while utilizing PR/media/UN speeches will make a PR splash and exert enough pressure to get something done for someone like Nasheed. please remember that the way he escaped prison in his country was that his attorneys’ stated he needed medical care in England; he was released specifically for that. Now, once he was out of the country( the Maldives) he frankly wasn’t going to go back. That was trickery, not stellar legal work. And what I would say to you is what about all of the other human rights victims who are not the client of Doughty Street and a former head of state? What has Amal done for them? That is why, I responded as I did in the post about Trial watch.
