Tripoli, 14 June 2014:
Attorney General Abdulqader Radwan has written to both the presidents of both Supreme Court and . . .[restrict]the Judges High Council requesting them to take a clear stand against the interference of the General National Congress (GNC) in the judiciary.
Radwan referred to the GNC session of 10 June in which he, Radwan was dismissed and Sadiq Al-Sour appointed in his place, saying he considers this to be GNC obstruction of the authority of judiciary authority. Al-Sour has thus far declined to accept the appointment.
“It was just a desperate reaction against the Supreme Court ruling on the illegality of Maetig’s election,” Congressman Abdullah Ghmati told Libya Herald.
The Libyan Judges Organization (LJO) has in fact already formally condemned the Radwan’s firing and called up the GNC to cancel it.
The First Deputy President of Congress, Ezzeddin Al-Awami, maintained that the GNC session of 10 June was illegitimate because of it lacked the required quorum, making it powerless to approve any decision taken that day.
