Judges' words

Strong words from the judges in this NYT story:

"It is enough that for the past 52 years, we have been carrying the liability of rigging the elections in this country," Zakariya Ahmed Abdel Aziz, chairman of the Judges Club, said at a meeting in August.
And this WaPo one:

"We're insisting that the elections were flawed. The government can't stand that because people will believe us and not them," said Bastawisi, a 29-year court veteran and currently an appeals court judge.
I'm just glad this is getting attention after the bombings.
