Egypt sacks 41 judges supporting Morsi

SHAFAQNA – According to Reuters report ” An Egyptian disciplinary court ordered 41 judges into compulsory retirement on Saturday for supporting the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, judicial sources said, the latest move in a sweeping crackdown on political dissent.” AFP said ” Thirty-one of the judges were accused of signing a political statement in solidarity with Morsi and reading it publicly at a protest camp of his supporters that the forcibly dispersed authorities on August 14, 2013.” Aljazeera TV said ” Egyptian law prohibits judges from engaging in politics, but critics and human rights groups say the judicial disciplinary court has turned a blind eye to judges who openly support the government of Sisi, who was elected president last year.”
