The August provision states that muftis in the Greek border region of Western Thrace must retire at the age of 67.
Accordingly, the mufti of Komotini, Cemali Meco, 81, and his counterpart in Xanthi, Mehmet Emin Sinikoglu, 78, must retire as members of the judiciary in early October.
The lawyers said their retirement violates EU law and that they have already appealed to the Council of State, Greece highest administrative court.
