Aden (Debriefer) An Aden-based court decided to pause legal actions on Monday after a military leader in the Southern Transitional Council (STC) stormed into its building and assaulted judges.
Bouraiqa first-instance court officially suspends work after judges were assaulted by a security leader in the STC, the court said in a statement.
Activity will be resumed "only after [the court is] rehabilitated and felons are held accountable," the statement read.
Southern judges club in Aden declared halt of all works in Bouraiqa first-instance court and prosecution until the military leader, who stormed into the court, is detained and brought before the specialist criminal prosecution.
Staff officer of the STC-affiliated first support brigade, Maeen al-Maqrahi, raided into Bouraiqa first-instance court and insulted the chief justice and PP member at court hearing, the club said in a statement.
This is an "assault against justice prestige," the statement said, calling for halt of assaults by security and military individuals against judicial authority and judges.
