Judge Aoun to MPs: If you really wish to fight corruption, amend the Code of Criminal Trials

NNA – Mount Lebanon's Public Prosecutor, Judge Ghada Aoun, said today on Twitter: “Examples of antagonizing judges in corruption files and fabricating cases of libel and slander and legitimate suspicion, abusing the right of defense to the maximum extent to stop prosecutions in these cases...How long will the silence continue? Honorable Representatives, if you really want to fight corruption, amend the Code of Criminal Trials. At least an amendment would allow the investigation to continue even if a response or legitimate suspicion lawsuit is filed. Criminal prosecutions aim to protect society and are related to public order. A country that respects itself and wants to protect its people cannot allow these abuses of people's rights and the law...Is anyone listening?!"
