Courts under lockout
It is strange that a section of the general public which has been quick to condemn strikes by lawyers, has remained mute when the courts has been closed after police unleashed violence against the lawyers and assaulted the judges. Courts will continue to be closed on Monday and Tuesday and today lawyers resolved to enter the campus and recommence work on Monday. The State has continued to issue provocative statements against the lawyer community and spread misinformation on the assault on the judiciary without being challenged on why it entered the campus without permission from the court authorities and why its personnel behaved like rioters.
