Supreme Court of the United States
The decision of the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to suspend Parliament for 5 weeks is illegal, the Supreme Court of the UK has ruled.
Magistrates initially stated that the decision fell within their jurisdiction, thereby rebutting a previous ruling by the English Supreme Court, which ruled that suspending Parliament's work was not a court's prerogative.
The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld an appeal filed by its top prosecutor Xeni Dimitriou against the rejection of a furlough request for convicted November 17 terrorist Dimitris Koufodinas, paving the way for the likely approval of the request.
A few hours later, Koufodinas ended a hunger strike he started on May 2 to protest the refusal of his request.
