Lawyers representing the March 14 coalition and the Progressive Socialist Party accused Lebanon's judiciary Tuesday of being a political tool after the release on bail of a former minister convicted of terrorism.The lawyers claimed that the court acquitted Samaha from numerous legal items despite proof that he was preparing to carry out attacks in 2012 when he was arrested.Despite his release on a nearly $100,000 bail last week, Samaha's trial will continue and he is expected to stand in court on Thursday.
