NNA - Head of the General Labor Confederation, Bechara Al-Asmar, said from the Justice Palace in Baabda, ahead of the hearing session in the lawsuit against him filed by caretaker Minister of Economy and Trade, Raed Khoury, on charges of slander: "We are facing political viciousness today. (...) We resorted to the judiciary and to the Shura Council and not to the street. (...) We have trust in the judiciary."
"This is a reason for us to demand syndical immunity. There is no alternative to immunity," he said.
