Yesterday, the judicial investigator in the Beirut port explosion case, Judge Tariq Al-Bitar, was notified of the lawsuit of “disputing the state” that was filed by the legal agents of former Prime Minister Hassan Diab, which required Al-Bitar to adjourn the interrogation session that was scheduled to hear Diab . Until the General Authority of the Court of Cassation decides on it As it is known, Al-Bitar will be notified of a similar lawsuit filed by the former minister and the defendant, Deputy defendant Nohad Al-Machnouk, which obliges the judicial investigator to stop taking action against him as well until the case is decided. Diab’s lawsuit was based on “Al-Bitar committed a distinctive deficiency in the performance of his work, and violates the principle of behaviour.” Al-Mashnouq’s lawsuit indicated that he “violated constitutional articles and ignored the indictment filed against the defendant before the House of Representatives.” How does “dispute with the state” differ from the rest of the cases, and does it meet the fate of previous cases that were rejected by the Courts of Cassation and Appeals in the past weeks? Who guarantees the “general body” of the Court of Cassation in the person of its president (the head of the Supreme Judicial Council), Judge Suhail Abboud, after the backgrounds from which he is moving became clear, and he is the one who stands as an impenetrable barrier against the questioning of Al-Bitar by the Supreme Judicial Council. “The victims in any case usually resort to the state’s claim of responsibility for the actions of the judicial judges, and the elements of damage must be present because of what they consider the wrong ruling after exhausting the prescribed methods of appeal to fix the errors,” says the legal representative of the accused, Lawyer Noam Farah, to Al-Akhbar. The difference between “disputing the state” and other lawsuits is that the first relates exclusively to the procedures of the plaintiff, not to the case as a whole. Diab and Al-Machnouk filed the two lawsuits after their requests were previously rejected, noting that the legal and constitutional consultations that preceded these lawsuits.
