Maronite Patriarch Condemns Political Meddling in Lebanon's Judicial System

Maronite Patriarch Bechara al-Rahi criticized the political meddling that keeps disrupting the Judiciary's work, deploring the impact that this is having on the country and citizens.

"The worst thing distorting the Lebanese judiciary, besides bribery, is the political interference that is influencing its verdicts and preventing their implementation," Al-Rahi said in his Sunday sermon.

“This is deeply hurting the Lebanese, undermining their confidence in the Judiciary and dashing the State's prestige,” he warned.
