Protesters from March 14 youth organizations demonstrated in Sidon Friday to decry the Military Tribunal's decision to release former Information Minister Michel Samaha on bail.The Military Tribunal decided to release Samaha earlier this month on bail despite the pending conclusion to his retrial. The decision angered the March 14 bloc which has backed Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi's request that the Cabinet orders the retrial of Samaha be moved to the Judicial Council rather than the Military Tribunal.Rifi proposed that the Cabinet modify the Military Tribunal's jurisdiction after its release of Samaha so that similar cases are tried by civil rather than military courts in future.
