A number of members in the judicial associations organized a protest Wednesday in front of the courts compound in Tripoli and uttered their rejection for the judicial authority item in the constitution draft.

The protesting members strongly denounced, in a statement, the results that the Constituent Assembly reached, as they do not consider the judicial authorities’ call for an autonomous Libyan judiciary.

“We suspend our communication with the Constitution Drafting Assembly after they violated the independency of the Libyan judiciary in the forthcoming constitution, not to mention that they also ignored all the recommendations in favor of the greater good of the country.” The members announced.

They also said that they will make a constitutional appeal against the Assembly in the Supreme Court after it had looked away from their demands.
