Maldives judiciary suspends 56 lawyers without a hearing after they file a petition critical of the courts

Judicial authorities in the Maldives have suspended the licenses of 56 attorneys who signed a petition accusing the courts up not upholding the rule of law.  The attorneys charged the courts with hasty, closed-door decisions in cases involving opposition officials in the government, among other accusations of politicization.

The 56 suspended lawyers amount to more than one-third of all attorneys on the island nation.
