Cairo (CNN) — Egypt’s high court is indefinitely suspending all its sessions, after supporters of President Mohamed Morsy surrounded the building and blocked judges from entering.

Calling Sunday a “dismal, black day” in the history of the country’s judiciary, the court said in a statement that its judges will not return to work until they can do their jobs “without any psychological or physical pressures.”

“The judges of the Supreme Constitutional Court have no choice but to declare to the great Egyptian people that they are unable to perform their sacred mission in light of the current charged situation,” the statement said, according to the state-run MENA news agency.
