The House of Representatives is once again pushing for the removal of a Supreme Court justice, this time graft suspect Gazalba Saleh, after his involvement in a scandalous graft case has permeated the top court.
It is at least the third time within the span of a year that a judge faces removal from the bench of a prominent court after lawmakers reportedly vetted them through “strict” procedures prior to appointment.
In a House plenary convened earlier this week, legislators agreed to send a letter of request to revoke a presidential decree (Kepres) from 2017 on Gazalba’s appointment and permanently dismiss the currently suspended court justice.
