Echo of the media – Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati affirmed, today, Saturday, that “the government is keen not to interfere in any file related to the judiciary.”

Najib Mikati discussed, during a meeting with the Minister of Justice, Judge Henry Khoury, the President of the Supreme Judicial Council, Judge Suhail Abboud, and the Public Prosecutor, Judge Ghassan Oweidat, in his office, the file of the security incidents that took place in Tayouneh, and the need to expedite the ongoing investigations to reveal the full circumstances of what happened and refer the perpetrators of these events to the competent judiciary.

Mikati stressed during the meeting that “the complete file of what happened is in the custody of the security services under the supervision of the competent judiciary,” stressing that “the government is keen not to interfere in any file related to the judiciary, and that the judicial authority must take whatever measures it deems appropriate.”

Al-Jadeed channel reported that during the meeting, it was decided to invite the judicial investigator in the Beirut port explosion case, Tariq Al-Bitar, to a meeting with the Supreme Judicial Council to discuss the latest developments.

At least 7 people were killed during armed unrest in the Tayouneh area in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, last Thursday, which the authorities described as an attack on demonstrators who were heading to participate in a protest called by “Hezbollah” and the “Amal” movement to demand the dismissal of the investigating judge in the Beirut port explosion.
