A couple dozen activists from We Want Accountability rallied Tuesday outside Beirut's Justice Palace to protest what they said were corrupt institutions and officials, as a delegation from the group met with Financial Prosecutor Judge Ali Ibrahim.Protesters held banners accusing state institutions of corruption and shouting slogans decrying officials who they said exploit state welfare to achieve narrow interests. Activist lawyer Wassef Harakeh later briefed reporters on the delegation's meeting with judge Ibrahim.He said the meeting tackled claims by head of the Central Inspection Directorate Judge George Awwad, who told a delegation of protesters last week that the directorate already passed on complaints to the judiciary. Harakeh held the Cabinet responsible for the inspection body, calling for reforms.
