Saied accused the judges of corruption and terrorist protection, mostly on politically motivated charges, according to the Tunisian Association of Judges.

Last summer, Saied repealed the 2014 constitution and dissolved an elected parliament after seizing power in a move called a coup.
Among the judges fired was Youssef Bouzaker, former chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council, whose members were replaced this year.
