House Speaker Nabih Berri was planning to boycott the launch of the new judicial year on Monday after President Michel Suleiman suggested during his recent consultations that the false witnesses file be discussed at the National Dialogue after failing to discuss it during Cabinet.
Suleiman was quick to clarify, through his sources, that he was not behind this suggestion, reported the daily An Nahar Sunday.
The president also stressed the National Dialogue's central role and aim at reaching a defense strategy.
In light of these developments, the daily said that Berri will participate in the launch of the new judicial year, which is sponsored by Suleiman.
