Justice Minister Abdel Latif Wehbe denied that he asked to be released from his government mission because of the uproar caused by the results of a written exam for the right to practice law.

Wehbe said in an interview with journalist Radwan Al-Ramadan this evening, Sunday, on the second 2M TV channel that “the ministry is a responsibility, and there are parties that have its respect and status, and a small whirlwind cannot push me to ask for release” , stressing that he usually fulfills his duties as Minister of Justice and General Secretary of the Authenticity and Modernity Party.

He stressed that the legal profession is open and that there is a committee that oversees the exam, pointing out that the minister is not the one who directly oversees the exam.

He explained that the names of all those deserving to pass the bar exam were included in the list of passers, pointing out that the Ministry of Justice agreed to review the documents of 103 candidates who did not pass the exam.

The Minister of Justice drew attention to the fact that only 800 candidates were able to pass the exam, adding that he persuaded the review committee to lower the pass rate to bring the number of passers to 2000, but he was not sure. whether all those whose names are included in the list of successful people deserve it.

On the other hand, Wehbe defended the success of the sons of lawyers and judges in the exam for the right to practice law, emphasizing that their work with their parents gives them the distinction of lawyers.

Wehbe showed that his spontaneity in his statements creates problems for him, but at the same time he confirmed his readiness to continue the upcoming battles over the revision of criminal law and the law on the legal profession. He said, “I don’t run away from battles, but I do my duty.”

He stressed that the revision of criminal law would raise a number of issues for discussion, especially with regard to the death penalty, individual freedoms and pre-trial detention.

He also reaffirmed his intention to criminalize underage marriage and said “my fingerprints will be present”, indicating that the prime minister is standing by him in his battle, before adding, “We are accompanied in this matter by the head of state . , and his decision will come into effect, and when we discuss with him, we will present what was approved.

Notably, the results of the bar exam have sparked widespread controversy on social media, to the point that the credibility of the exam has been called into question, especially after the names of relatives of a number of lawyers, judges and officials from the Ministry of Justice appeared on the list of successful candidates, but the Minister of Justice denied that there had been any falsification of the exam.
