Source: Egyptian judges' body urges referendum boycott

CAIRO - An influential body representing Egyptian judges will urge its members not to supervise a December15 referendum on a draft constitution, said a source in the organization, in a blow to President Mohamed Morsi.
The source said the decision over the referendum was made at a Judges' Club board meeting in Cairo on Sunday. Club decisions are not binding on its members.
The Club had voiced strong condemnation of a Nov. 22 decree issued by Morsi that expanded the president's powers and shielded them from judicial review.
