Civil Court rejects second case against JSC’s High Court appointments

The Civil Court has rejected a second case filed by a judge opposing the Judicial Services Commission (JSC)’s appointment of High Court’s judges, reports Haveeru.
Chief judge of the Family Court Hassan Saeed filed a case in the Civil Court calling for the JSC’s appointments to be invalidated.
Last week Criminal Court judge Abdul Bari Yousuf, one of the unsuccessful applicants to the High Court bench, filed a similar case that was accepted by the court – however it was blocked from hearing the matter by the Supreme Court, which issued an unprecedented Writ of Prohibition and requested the case file.
High Court judges appointment by the JSC last week include Juvenile Court Chief Judge Shuaib Hussein Zakariya, former Law Commission member Dr Azmiralda Zahir, Civil Court registrar Abdu Rauf Ibrahim, lawyer of former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, Abbas Shareef and Civil Court Chief Judge Ali Sameer.
