Oweidat punishes Judge Ghada Aoun and calls on the security services not to refer to her

The Appellate Public Prosecutor, Judge Ghassan Oweidat, issued a decision to amend the decision to distribute work to the Appeal Public Prosecution in Mount Lebanon by limiting it to three lawyers for two years only, without noting the name of the Appeal Public Prosecutor in Mount Lebanon, Judge Ghada Aoun, and stopped two other judges who preceded the Disciplinary Council of Judges from working.

Oweidat’s decision comes as a disciplinary measure against Judge Aoun for not complying with her obligations before the Supreme Judicial Council in terms of respecting the laws and principles that regulate the work of judges in general, and her violation of the circulars issued by the discriminatory public prosecutor and other behavioral issues pending before the judicial inspection.

Judicial sources reported to Voice of Beirut International that Judge Oweidat based his decision to distribute the agenda at the Palace of Justice in Baabda on the text of Articles 13 of the Code of Criminal Procedure and 31 of Legislative Decree No. 150/83 of the Judicial Judiciary Law. In a decision, Oweidat stressed the need to refer files to the three judges from the public attorneys to whom the acts were restricted, specifying in his decision the other crimes that each of the three judges considers, provided that the discriminatory public prosecutor is informed of serious crimes.

The Public Prosecutor asked all the security services that make up the judicial police to abide by this decision.
