“Referring judicial nominations to Finance Minister is a violation of constitution,” says Said Malek

After the Supreme Judicial Council and Minister of Justice Henry Khoury approved judicial nominations and forwarded them to Finance Minister Youssef Al-Khalil, they are still pending before the Minister of Finance.

It has been demonstrated that its delay jeopardizes the judicial body and jeopardizes the incompleteness of the General Assembly of the Court of Cassation, which is the body entrusted with considering dispute cases and litigating the state, and thus today’s decision is a political decision to halt work within the framework of this decree in order to prevent the formation of the General Assembly of the Court of Cassation, ensuring that the port bombings and related investigations continue.
