Judge Bitar issues decision stipulating the postponement of Zeaiter questioning session

Sources told Sawt Beirut International that the questioning session set for the hearing of Former Minister of Public Works, MP Ghazi Zeaiter, included an unexpected twist.. His Attorney at-Law, Samer Al Hajj, submitted formal defensesrelated to the Judicial Council’s lack of jurisdiction to prosecute Minister Zeaiter, given that the authority shall be handed to the Supreme Council for Trial of Presidents and Ministers.

The submission of these defenses was a significant breakthrough since it was perceived as an acknowledgement of the court investigator’s processes in this case.
