Egypt: Judges Club Suspends Work At All Prosecution Offices

Judges of Egypt Club decided on Thursday to suspend work at all prosecution offices until prosecutor general Judge Talaat Ibrahim steps down, Minister of Justice Judge Ahmed Mekki is sacked, and Judge Zaghloul al-Balshi steps down from his post as head of judicial investigation.
