Abboud-Oueidat Row on Othman Torpedoes Judicial Council Meeting


The Higher Judicial Council failed to convene yesterday due to a dispute between Council chief Judge Suheil Abboud and his deputy, State Prosecutor Ghassan Oueidat, over putting a letter demanding the prosecution of ISF chief Maj. Gen. Omad Othman on the session’s agenda, informed sources said.

The letter was sent by the lawyers of two activist groups -- the People Want to Reform the Regime and the State Recovery Gathering.

The letter was placed on the meeting’s agenda “without the knowledge of Judge Oueidat, who categorically rejected the matter, the thing that led to canceling the meeting,” the sources told al-Liwaa newspaper in remarks published Wednesday.
