During his meeting with a delegation from the Beirut Bar Association, El-Khoury said: “I stand by the lawyers with the demands that they talked about and I will faithfully transfer them to the competent references in order to achieve their implementation, therefore I stress that the relationship should be in the best condition between lawyers and judges.”

On the issue of referring the part related to the trial of presidents and ministers to the Parliament, Minister El-Khoury replied: “This matter is a legal point for discussion, so it is not vital to anticipate any legal position prematurely.”
