#AceWorldNews – CAIRO – April 11 – Turkey’s Constitutional Court annulled parts of a law tightening government control of the judiciary, Reuters said, citing local media reports.

Articles granting the justice minister powers over the High Council of Judges and Prosecutors were reportedly cancelled.
