Tunisian Administrative Court suspends decision to dismiss 50 judges

0 105

A Tunisian administrative court suspended Wednesday the presidential decree decision issued in June, by which President Kais Saied dismissed fifty judges on charges of “covering up terrorist cases”, “corruption”, and “affiliation with political parties”. The new court decision, which included fifty of the dismissed judges, requires them to return to work and resume their duties pending a decision on the origins of the cases, a process that may take months and perhaps years, according to judicial sources. The court’s decision was based on an urgent request made by the defense committee of the dismissed judges, sources added, and it is likely that the cases of the other seven judges will be resolved soon, as the accusations against them are unproven.
