Tunisian judges hold ‘day of anger’ against President dismissals of judges


Tunisian judges staged Thursday a protest under the title ‘Judges day of anger’ as part of a series of protests going on for nearly three weeks, denouncing the decision of President Kais Saied, to dismiss 57 judges without referring to the Supreme Judicial Council. Several judges announced a hunger strike in protest against their dismissal, and President’s decisions against the judicial institute. The Judges Association noted that the strike comes in demand of judicial dignity and independence. Judges demand the separation of powers, and for executive authority to refrain from interfering with judicial authority.
