Lebanese women's rights organizations are still awaiting the launch of an appeal against a criminal court's verdict in the case of Mohammad al-Nhaily, who stood accused of beating his wife Manal Assi to death in 2014 .A judicial source told The Daily Star that in general there are two ways in which an appeal can be brought, through either the State Prosecution of Appeals or the State Prosecution of Cassation.If the State Prosecution of Appeals does not challenge the verdict, the State Prosecution of Cassation has a month from the sentencing to launch its own legal case.In doing so, it would tell the Court of Cassation that the initial ruling was unfair and doesn't bring justice to the victim, the source explained. It is vital for the State Prosecution of Cassation to point out the legal gaps in the verdict, the source added.
