Jebel Akhdar courts suspend work over security situation
Tripoli, 30 December 2012:
Courts in the Jebel Akhdar have temporarily suspended their work in the region until the security situation improves, a local judge told Libyan news agency LANA today.
Chairman Abdul Aziz Mustafa Al-Trabelsi, head of the Court of Appeals for Jebel Akhdar, said that the courts had suspended their work until improvements were made in security arrangements for their buildings and workers.
He said that the poor security situation in Derna was preventing the courts from carrying out their work properly, pointing to threats made against members of the judiciary in recent months.
Al-Trabelsi gave no indication of how long he thought that the courts’ work would be suspended for in his statement to LANA today.
