Tunisian justice suspends president’s dismissal of 50 judges

A Tunisian administrative court has suspended the dismissal of fifty judges sacked by President Kais Saied in June, a lawyer told Reuters on Wednesday.

Saied sacked 57 judges on June 1, accusing them of corruption and protecting terrorists – charges which the Association of Tunisian Judges said were primarily politically motivated.

The lawyer, Kamel Ben Massoud, told Reuters the court rejected appeals from at least seven other judges.
