Amal Clooney will be soon again in Vogue magazine 04.03.2018

Amal Clooney has opened the doors of her mansion to Ms Leibovitz, for an ‘at home’ interview, set to be published in a few months’ time.

Amal Clooney has also borrowed £7 million of diamonds to wear for the occasion.

The jewels, said to have been lent by Cartier, were delivered to the mansion on the banks of the Thames in a bulletproof Brinks security van last Wednesday.

A source close to the Clooneys told The Mail on Sunday: ‘This has been organised for a long while. It is Amal’s chance to do a sit-down interview and show the inside of her house.’

Amal Clooney at the Watermark Conference for Women in San Jose 23.02.2018

Amal Clooney is all smiles as she arrives onstage at the 2018 Watermark Conference for Women held at the San Jose Convention Center on Friday (February 23) in San Jose, Calififornia, USA.

Amal Clooney was only 4 when her family fled the Lebanese Civil War, so she doesn’t remember much about its horrors. But her mother has told her of the afternoon when the small school bus she and her sister were riding was hours late. The bus had to veer off the road near their Beirut home, because of shelling ahead.

“As a parent now, I can’t imagine how terrifying that must have been,” Amal Clooney said Friday at the Watermark Conference for Women Silicon Valley in San Jose.

As Amal Clooney acknowledged, the experience of being a refugee from a war-torn area, as well as a mother, has informed her activism on behalf of victims of violence. Now Clooney’s support extends to the students who survived last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. She and George Clooney plan to attend the students’ anti-gun violence march in Washington, D.C., on March 24.

Moreover, the couple have pledged $500,000 to help fund the event. They announced their donation this week in the name of their children, Ella and Alexander.

“I’m just blown away by these students,” Clooney said, during an onstage conversation with “All Things Considered” co-host Kelly McEvers at the San Jose Convention Center.

“They are turning a tragedy into advocacy,” said Clooney, whose clients have included journalists imprisoned by governments in Egypt and Azerbaijan, as well as an Iraqi woman whose family and ethnic Yazidi community were targeted by ISIS for genocide, rape and sex slavery.

She noted that it’s only been a little over a week since the Parkland shooting, when a 19-year-old former student, Nikolas Cruz, opened fire at the suburban high school, killing 14 students and three staff members.

Students reported hiding in closets, listening to gunfire in nearby classrooms, texting their parents to say good-bye and then surviving, only to learn that friends and classmates had died.

“I’m in awe of how courageous they are and how effective they are,” Clooney said. In the last week, the students have started a national conversation about gun control and school safety that could bring about a reckoning over gun violence in America.

These students notably have called out President Donald Trump, members of congress and the National Rifle Association for their refusal to acknowledge what the students see as the key factor in mass shootings: the accessibility of guns in America, especially of high-powered rifles like the AR-15, which was used by Cruz.

“I don’t think I would have had the presence of mind or the courage to do what they are doing at age 16, let alone having gone through what they have,” Clooney said.

She also praised the students for the way they have spoken passionately and intelligently and asked the “tough questions” in their appearances on national television and in face-to-face encounters with U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and with Trump at the White House.

“They are the best vehicle (for change),” Clooney said. “They are our best hope.”

As someone not born in the United States, Clooney said she has always looked at this country as one that provides a “great example to others.” Clooney grew up in the United Kingdom, but got her law degree at New York University, worked for a time on Wall Street and lives with her husband in Los Angeles part-time.

But in one way, She suggested, America is not living up to its best self.

“The idea that children are scared to go to school, bullet-proof backpacks are being sold out and that students have to go through these live shooter drills,” she said. “And the conclusion is, ‘Let’s start arming teachers.’ It just doesn’t make sense to me.”

She also disputed other ideas being floated about how to address mass shootings.

People say maybe it’s because there is violence in films or there is a mental health issue,” she said. “But there’s violence in films and mental health issues in other countries. This is the only country where this kind of problem exists.”

Amal Clooney emphasized why this issue has become personal to her, and why she and her family will attend the march to support efforts to bring about change: “It’s likely that my children will go to school here. I know their lives literally depend on (change happening).”

Amal Clooney and Nadia Murad discuss the importance to bring ISIS to justice on CNN 19.03.2017

Amal Clooney and her client, Nadia Murad tell to Fareed Zakaria why it is necessary to bring ISIS/Daesh to justice.

(CNN) A Yazidi woman who was kidnapped and taken as a sex slave by ISIS told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Sunday that the Iraqi government and the UN should establish an investigation in order to bring members of the brutal regime to justice.

Nadia Murad, along with her counsel, international human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, described her ordeal to Zakaria. It began in 2014 after ISIS militants arrived at her village in Sinjar, Kurdistan, she said.

“Early morning on August 3, 2014, they attacked us,” she recalled.

“Nearly 6,500 women and children from the Yazidi were abducted and about 5,000 people from the community were killed during that day. For eight months, they separated us from our mothers and our sisters and our brothers, and some of them were killed and others disappeared.”

Murad’s mother and six of her brothers and stepbrothers were executed. Murad, along with other unmarried women, was taken as a sex slave and passed around various ISIS militants.

At one point, she told the UN Security Council in 2015, as punishment for a failed escape attempt, she was gang raped until she passed out. All of this, she said, was considered legal under ISIS rule — which dictates that Yazidis, because they do not practice Islam, can be taken as slaves on religious grounds.

“They sold girls, girls that were underage, because ISIS considered that permissible under Islamic law,” Murad said. “They came not just to attack certain people, but they came for all Yazidis.”

The violence against the Yazidi community continues to this day, said Clooney, who represents Murad. More than 6,000 Yazidis are believed to remain in captivity, some of them from Murad’s own family, Clooney said.

It’s time, she said, to bring ISIS to justice for committing some of “the worst crimes of our generation.”

“We know that there’s a military campaign going on where ISIS is being taken on on the battlefield. What we want is to see ISIS members also in a courtroom,” Clooney said.

There hasn’t been a “single prosecution against ISIS in a court anywhere in the world for the crimes committed against the Yazidis … for any international crimes,” she added.

Last week, Clooney addressed the UN in a bid to convince the Security Council to set up an investigation in Iraq to start collecting evidence. “ISIS is not a local threat, it’s a global threat,” Amal Clooney said.

“So, my message to the UN was, this is a global threat. It needs a global response. And part of that response must be a judicial one. It cannot be only on the battlefield. You can’t defeat ISIS on the battlefield alone, because you have to also deal with future recruiting. And I think trials and exposing the brutality of ISIS and trying to make a dent in some of their shiny propaganda by showing that it’s not a holy war and showing what they’re really doing to children, to women, is one way to help that,” she said.

Clooney believes an investigation also is crucial to ensure that evidence is properly collected. “ISIS has set up a whole bureaucracy involving the slave trade where they’ve set up committees, they’ve set up courts, so there are documents, there’s DNA, there are mass graves, and nobody is actually collecting this evidence. And if it gets lost, it means we can never have trials and we can never have justice,” she said.

Amal Clooney said she is asking the Iraqi government and the UN to step in and set up a thorough investigation. In order to make that happen, she said, Iraq needed only to send a letter to the Security Council saying, “Please establish an investigation.”

“There’s already a resolution drafted and ready,” she said, “And if Iraq just sends the letter, then there will be a vote. And from all of my conversations, including with the Russian ambassador and the United States ambassador and others, it seems that there’s actually broad support in the Council.

“So, this actually should move forward. It’s in line with the Iraqi government’s interests, because they’re going after ISIS.”

Murad, who now lives in Germany, said she hoped ISIS would finally be brought to justice.

Then, she said, switching from her native language to a halting English, she “wondered,” that “maybe if I can speak English, maybe the UN, they can understand … what we want. But I can’t.”

“We can hear you no matter what language you speak,” said Zakaria.

‘Yazidis in Iraq are IS genocide victims’ BBC interview 07.03.2017

Amal Clooney acting on behalf of the Yazidis in Iraq is calling for a formal investigation into Islamic State (IS) for the crime of genocide.

On Tuesday, she discussed the decision with Fiona Bruce on BBC News, which showed a haunting reel of ISIS atrocities before the beginning of the interview.

“I’ve been to refuges in Germany like the one you showed in your piece and I have interviewed former child soldiers and young girls who were raped and enslaved by ISIS,” Clooney told Bruce.

“It’s been the most harrowing testimony I’ve ever heard. We know that it’s genocide. The UN has said so. In other words: ISIS is trying to destroy them as a group and we are allowing it to happen without actually calling ISIS to account,” she added.

One of the first steps to holding ISIS responsible, Amal Clooney explained, is to preserve evidence of the atrocities on the ground. Unfortunately, that evidence is hard to collect, and it’s disappearing fast. “There are mass graves that are being discovered; just a few days ago in Mosul a huge mass grave that’s thought to have 4,000 bodies in it was discovered and there’s other types of evidence as well,” she explained.

She’ll be back on the world stage this week, appearing at the United Nations.
