Introduction to Middle Eastern Law

Chibli Mallat

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the more traditional adjudication of criminal and administrative cases. It argues that in the field of constitutional and criminal law, whenever the slightest political overtone appears in a case — that is, prisoners of conscience, operations of the police and security services, review of electoral laws and elections, detention of political opponents under seditious acts, etc. — the legal professions find themselves struggling in a generally adverse environment. In areas of public life which are considered eminently ‘political’, regardless of whether people toil under traditional monarchies or revolutionary potentates, executive power has been reluctant to allow any serious review of state power.
