AMT says regrets Head of State's decision to promulgate law amending and supplementing Organic Law on CSM.

(TAP) - The Executive Board of the Tunisian Magistrates' Association (French: AMT) said it "deeply regretted" the decision of the President of the Republic to promulgate the law amending and supplementing Organic Law No. 2016-34 On the Supreme Judicial Council (French: CSM).

"In spite of the legal challenges filed by 37 MPs with the Provisional Constitutional Review Authority, the Organic Law amending and supplementing Organic Law No. 2016-34 on the CSM has been promulgated," the executive board of AMT deplored in a statement released Wednesday.

The Board also expressed its concern at the temptations to push aside any peaceful settlement of the CSM crisis because, it said, of the failure to implement the decision of the Administrative Tribunal and the disregard of the consensual judicial initiative around this issue.

"The decision of the President of the Republic to promulgate the Act amending and supplementing Organic Law No. 2016-34 on the CSM will have a negative impact on the stability of the institution and on the independence of the judiciary," warned the Board.
