As we predicted on 24 January, Libya’s Supreme Court has just approved the draft constitution issued by the Constitutional Drafting Assembly.

A Supreme Court ruling issued earlier today stated that the Administrative Court of al-Baydha has no jurisdiction over constitutional cases, which in effect rendered al-Baydha ruling invalid.

This morning, Essa Rashwan, a social media activist, accused Fayez Sarraj, head of Libya’s UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), of trying to “bribe” Supreme Court judges.

Mr Rashwan posted a decree on his Facebook page which he claimed was signed by Mr Sarraj covering the cost of official trips to Italy and the Netherlands for judicial officials including the head of the Supreme Court.
