The lawyer is specifically asking for the enforcement of his right to freedom of movement, right to protest and demonstrate, right to personal liberty, right to freedom of expression, and right against unlawful arrest and malicious prosecution.

The motion is accompanied by an injunction application to restrain any further arrest until a determination of the Human Rights action.

“An order that the attempt by the officers of the respondent to arrest me on 28th October 2021 without telling me the reasons for the arrest, was unlawful,” a portion of the motion said

The action was filed on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, and is expected to be heard on Monday, December 13, 2021.
