Detained Judges Set Free By SSS
The State Security Service has released all the judges arrested during a nationwide sweep between Friday and Saturday.
Sources in the agency said all the seven judges were released on self-recognition. From further investigation, it was realised that they were all released on bail late on Sunday.
“They reported back monday morning to clarify some pending issues which after they were all free to go back home. They will be coming back in subsequent days to come but generally, everything went very procedurally well and civil”, a source from the state security reported.
“They were released on bail on self recognition based on the fact that given their standing in the society, they cannot run away. They were instructed that they should come back today by 10am.
“They did report for investigation this morning and they have gone back home. And the investigation continues and preparation to charge them to court continued.”
The source added, “Also, action was sequel to lack of cooperation by National Judicial Council. Such as refusal by the NJC to allow the affected persons to be questioned by the DSS. Investigation started some seven months ago, precisely in April 2016.”
The crackdown has continued to generate mixed reactions across the country.
