Report: Aoun, Berri, Miqati Agreed Bitar Issue Must First be Tackled by Judiciary
President Michel Aoun, Speaker Nabih Berri and PM Najib Miqati agreed in their meeting on Monday on “finding a solution through the judiciary for the issue of Beirut port blast investigative judge Tarek Bitar,” LBCI TV said.
They also agreed that “should the judiciary fail to resolve it, a solution can be found through parliament,” the TV network added.
As for the issue of Information Minister George Kordahi’s resignation, LBCI quoted sources as saying that the matter cannot be resolved in Cabinet.
“He personally has the ability to take a decision, seeing as the door of sacking is closed while the door of resignation is open for Kordahi himself,” the sources added.
