The Chief Justice of the Libyan Supreme Court, Mohammed Al-Hafi, announced Thursday the reactivation of the constitutional circuit court which has been suspended since 2016.
Al-Hafi said in a video statement that the Supreme Court’s General Assembly had decided unanimously to reopen the constitutional circuit court.
He also said that the constitutional circuit court promised all Libyans that it would remain unbiased and stick to the rule of law.
The Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah welcomed the reactivation of the constitutional circuit court and wished it would prevent violations of some parties as well as the decisions that were made by some parties in violation of the political agreement.
The constitutional circuit court of the Supreme Court adjudicates cases and appeals of constitutional and legal aspects. It also specializes in adjudicating cases and disputes about laws, legislation and decisions issued by the executive and legislative authorities, as well as any violations or challenges to the constitutional declaration.
