Lawyers Syndicate denounces judge’s conduct [Archives:2005/877/Local News]

September 15 2005

SANA'A- Sept. 10- The Lawyers syndicate has published a scathing criticism of the North primary court in the Capital Secretariat. The syndicate described the court as arrogant, unbecoming and its behavior as inappropriate from a judiciary.

A primary example of this behavior, the syndicate cited, was the manhandling of one of its members Mohamed Al-Miswary. As he was in the judge's office, doing his routine work, the judge ordered his civilian and military aides to force him out of the office.

The syndicate said that it finds no excuse for the ministry of justice's mild attitude towards this judge, in spite of the repeated complaints on his deliberate insults to lawyers.

The lawyers Syndicate in Sana'a reminds of their previous complaints, which they filed against the same judge before in 11.5.2005.

The syndicate voiced a call to all those concerned with defending the judiciary, to demand the resignation of this judge and his likes and to hold them accountable for their behavior.

The Syndicate said that it is holding fast to its constitutional and legal rights in the face of this judge and those who back him.
