Mohamed Rafik

A strong-developed sense of justice made Mohamed Rafik decide to become a criminal defence lawyer after his time at the prosecutor’s office and the court. His thesis research into the treatment of detainees in the terrorist wing worked as a booster: in his view the harsh regime was nothing less than an incremental sentence on top of the verdict handed down by the judge. With the same drive that characterizes him throughout his entire legal career he now stands up for the underdog. Whether it is a suspect of terrorism or someone suspected of a financial crime does not make a difference to hem, because everyone deserves a fair trial and therefore a good defence.

Mohamed Rafik started his career at the prosecutor’s office in Breda. He then worked as a clerk at the court in Breda and Rotterdam. In 2017, his thesis research into the terrorist wing was an important source for te report of Amnesty International: Inhumane and Unnecessary, human rights violations in the terrorist wing. Via NautaDutilh (practice group criminal law) he started working at Jebbink Soeteman advocaten in 2018.
