The judge Mazeh confirmed: "My resignation is final because my judicial decision was legal and politicized." In his first comment after submitting his resignation, he wrote through his private account on Facebook: "Am I not right, yes, God willing, so I don't care if I signed the punishment or the punishment was imposed on me, thanks God Lord of the worlds, and with the permission of my master Imam al-Hussein and my greatest master Ali."
The resigned judge also told local media outlets: "I was surprised to be informed as soon as I came to the Supreme Judicial Council that the case had been referred to the central inspection, and this is what I am not satisfied with, based on the dignity of the judiciary."
The Judge Mazeh issued a statement last Sunday, in which he said: "Some websites reported that the General Prosecutor, Judge Ghassan Aouidat, referred Judge Muhammad Mazeh to the Judicial Inspection Board due to ineligibility. I announce that I had not been informed of anything related to this matter."
He added: "In the event that it was true, before accepting me, I was referred to the inspection because of a decision I issued with completely clear of conscience and based on the provisions of the law that I mentioned in the decision, I formally submit an application for termination of my service in the judiciary on Tuesday, 30/6/2020."
