Egyptian judges' body urges referendum boycott

Published: 12.02.12, 22:11 / Israel News

An influential body representing Egyptian judges will urge its members not to supervise a Dec. 15 referendum on a draft constitution, said a source in the organisation, in a blow to President Mohamed Mursi.

The source said the decision over the referendum was made at a Judges' Club board meeting in Cairo on Sunday. Club decisions are not binding on its members. The Club had voiced strong condemnation of a Nov. 22 decree issued by Mursi that expanded the president's powers and shielded them from judicial review. (Reuters)
