A Mount Lebanon judge in the Court of Appeals Monday indefinitely froze a previous decision to close the infamous Costa Brava landfill south of Beirut. The head of the court, Judge Elham Abdullah, issued the decision to keep the landfill open after it was closed for 48 hours and stopped accepting trash from Beirut's southern suburbs, surrounding areas and parts of Greater Beirut.As members of the Executive Department waited through the morning for the decision to take effect, the Court of Appeals gathered under Abdullah and made the decision to freeze the closure order.According to the report, an emergency meeting was held and only lasted five minutes before the decision to keep the landfill open was made.
