Communiqué of July 11, 2018

The Beirut Bar Association Council held a meeting on July 11, 2018, under the chairmanship of the Bar Association President, Attorney André Al Chidiac, and in the presence of the members. During the meeting, the participants addressed the situation of the courts in the palaces of justice and the unacceptable contempt and encroachment that lawyers are facing. The Council issued the following communique:

- The palaces of justice in Beirut, Baabda, Sidon and Tyre are in a deplorable condition; they are inappropriate for judges, lawyers and litigants, which undermines the image of justice in Lebanon. The situation now needs a radical solution in terms of finishing electricity and construction works and providing an alternative for the Palace of Justice of Baabda, as all repairing works are not enough anymore but do instead put litigant files at risk of damaging and loss.

- The Council tackled the attacks lawyers have been subject to for quite some time, namely the attack against the colleague Attorney Fady Kuheil, whose file is being followed by the Bar Association; by persons whom the law and the Constitution entrusted with maintaining the citizens’ safety and rights. The Council condemned these attacks, especially the latest one, out of respect for the institutions to which the aggressors belong. Therefore, the Bar Association Council calls on lawyers to stop attending court hearings for one hour, from 12 until 1 pm, on Monday, July 16, 2018.

- The Council warns against continued violation of laws and exposure of justice, including judges, lawyers and litigants, these acts indicating an increasing contempt of the institution state prestige.
