Bassil: What reform would we hope for if the judiciary is not reformed?

Head of the Free Patriotic Movement, Gebran Bassil, commented in a tweet, Saturday, on the developments in the judicial situation in Lebanon, noting that any reform begins in the judiciary.

“There is no point in talking about reform or fighting corruption if there is no independent, bold and effective judiciary,” MP Bassil wrote on Twitter.

“The real revolution is the revolution of the honest judiciary that pursues people’s cases in the face of some corrupt judges who hide some files and neglect some of them and block others,” he added.

“What reform would we hope for if the judiciary is not reformed? Where are the media, civil society, the minister of justice, the Supreme Judicial Council, and the political forces?” the FPM leader asked.

“Every Lebanese must define his position between those who want reform so that the state can be established and money restored, and those who want corruption to continue so that the collapse drags on,” he said.
