Justice Minister denies “Asharq Al-Awsat” report content, urges media not to publish false information

Caretaker Minister of Justice, Judge Henry Khoury, categorically denied in an issued statement today, what was published in “Asharq Al-Awsat” newspaper quoting a judicial source that “the Ministry of Justice contacts the judges and asks them to sign a petition to be submitted to the Central Bank Governor demanding that their salaries be paid at the exchange rate of 8000 Lebanese pounds to the dollar instead of the 1500 Lebanese pounds exchange rate currently approved.”

Khoury called on all media outlets “not to publish false information about the Ministry of Justice without referring to the Ministry’s media office or to the Minister of Justice personally.”

“As for accurate judicial sources, they are solely issued by the Minister’s office,” the statement underlined.
