Courts in Sana’a announce strike [Archives:2003/650/Local News]

July 14 2003

Courts and general prosecutions in the capital secretariat announced a general strike beginning from 8th July in protest to an attack and beating against the south of secretariat head of appeal prosecution court by brigadier general M. M., a high ranking commander in the army and his guards on 6 July probably because the judge did not obey the brigadier general on a disputed issue.
It so happened that last month another judge namely Amin Hajar member of the prison prosecution was also assaulted while he did not rule in favor of a number of military people. Another incident took place last week when an attorney general came under attack by a central security general. It is worth mentioning that none of the previous incidents received suitable measures and that is why the judges are protesting through strike.
