Protesters in Tunisia have gathered outside the Palace of Justice in the capital, Tunis, to denounce the defamation of sacked female judges. They are among 57 judges dismissed by the President last week after he accused them of corruption and protecting terrorists. Those dismissed have since faced online attacks by supporters of the president- one of the female judges has been accused of adultery. The Judges’ Association began a week-long protest on Monday against the move by the Tunisian president. He has ordered their salaries to be deducted for the days they remain on strike.
