Chief Prosecutor Wael College Buallay said at a news conference today, September 4, 2012, that the Supreme Court of Appeal released judgements against 13 opposition activists in the case for conspiracy to overthrow the government and keeping contact with foreign entities in violation of the provisions of the constitution.
Political Aide to the Secretary General, Mr Khalil al Marzouq comments on the rulings.
"Although they call it civilian rulling, it's still a military ruling as it used to be.
Provisions are the same, and the practices also, because the whole process is governed by the will of power, not the will of law or fair procedures.
This is why we were not surprised, but we hope that the authority will provide something to the international community justification for this power."
