The Constitutional Council Tuesday abolished a controversial law appointing Justice Ministry employees as public notaries, putting an end to the short life of a bill deemed unconstitutional by many.Endorsed by the legislature in April, the law allowed 45 Justice Ministry employees, who have been working as acting-public notaries, to temporarily replace full-timers on holiday or unable to work, to become full-fledged public notaries so long as they passed a special exam.Tuesday, the council rejected a challenge filed by a number of MPs to a law making Civil Defense contract workers and volunteers full-timers after they passed certain tests.
