A court session scheduled for Thursday to discuss closing down the Burj Hammoud landfill in east Beirut is expected to turn into a "scandal," a lawyer involved in the matter said.Bazzi claimed that the judge following up the case had tasked an expert with compiling a study into the landfill that showed no negative impact, contradicting past studies.The landfills were opened as part of a March 2016 trash plan implemented by former Prime Minister Tammam Salam's government, in response to a trash crisis that hit the country in 2015 when Beirut's Naameh landfill was closed without an alternative in place.Bazzi warned that lawyers will pursue further legal measures if their claims over the landfill are not substantiated by the court.
