Report: Higher Judicial Council Doesn't Intend to Discuss Bitar Removal


The Higher Judicial Council rejects "the intimidation and treason accusations campaign against the judiciary," a Council source has said.

The Council "also rejects any attempt to undermine the judiciary's role as an independent authority," the source told Kuwait's al-Anbaa newspaper in remarks published Wednesday.

"The Council does not intend, in any way whatsoever, to discuss any format aimed at removing the investigative judge into the Beirut port blast file, Judge Tarek Bitar," the source added.
