Persons accused of missing hearings were usually arrested when exiting or entering Lebanon via Beirut's airport, or visiting General Security offices, the letter said.Lebanon's traffic law stipulates that if a fine is not paid one month after its issuance, the case is transferred to a court, where a hearing is subsequently scheduled. A judicial source told The Daily Star Thursday that the scheduling of a hearing could take a long time – up to one or two years. If a citizen ultimately misses the scheduled date, the source said, a warrant is issued for their arrest.
