The Lebanese Center for Human Rights (CLDH) condemns the letter sent by the Prime Minister to the Minister of Interior, seeing that it contradicts the principle of the separation of powers enshrined in the Lebanese Constitution. According to the law, appealing a judicial decision must be made before the competent authorities specified in article 344 up to article 354 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, i.e. the Judicial Inspection Commission. Especially that according to article 371 of the Penal Code, any official who directly or indirectly uses their authority or influence to impede or delay the execution of a judicial decision, judicial order, or any order issued by a competent authority can be sentenced to three months to two years in prison. Moreover, Article 399 of the same Code sentences any official responsible for the search for or prosecution of crimes to one month to three years imprisonment and a fine of 20,000 to 200,000 LBP if they neglect or defer news of an offense in connection with their work.
