In a statement to LBCI’s Nharkom Said, he said that the request to refer the case to the Judicial Council came from the head of the Lebanese Democratic Council Talal Erslan, voicing solidarity with him.

 

“Qabrchmoun incident is an organized security crime,” he stressed.

 

Al-Khoury stressed that they are in a political conflict with the head of the Progressive Socialist Party Walid Jumblatt, noting that it is their right to have a different opinion without using the judiciary as a tool.

 

“The judiciary has been subject to pressures from different political parties while it must act as an independent authority,” he added.

 

Regarding the cabinet, the deputy said that the Free Patriotic Movement is not against holding a cabinet session, pointing out that “it is wiser to reach an agreement before the cabinet convenes in order to avoid governmental debates.”
