Chamoun’s arrest sparked protests across the country. Protesters blocked the road in front of the Serail and insisted they would not leave until Chamoun was released. It was Judge Aoun who declared to protesters that Chamoun would not be released until they left.
Despite her claim of undertaking “a thawra against corruption,” and calling “trash” the revolution of the nation against all corrupts without discrimination, Judge Aoun has not demonstrated the same impartiality as the people of the revolution.
It remains to see whether punitive actions would be taken or political intervention would force the disregard of her multiple violations.
