Less than a month ago, Michel Hayek released his annual predictions for Lebanon and the world covering topics from politics, entertainment, security, and much more.
Soon enough, one of Michel Hayek’s predictions regarding the judicial system seems to have come to fruition:
“Everything that has happened and is happening in the country is enough, and what will happen in the Lebanese judiciary — from the top of the pyramid to the bottom of the base, including the courts and those inside them — will be a scale of its own.”
The Higher Judicial Council was meant to convene in an attempt to remove Judge Bitar but 6 members refused to appear due to popular discontent. This resulted in a failed session with the Justice Minister reportedly leaving from the backdoor.
