Lebanon's highest judicial body said Monday that it stood behind judges in their demands for better remuneration, but warned that there would be negatives consequences if there were further prolonged strikes by judges.The remarks by the Higher Judicial Council came in a statement issued after judges threatened to begin a strike from Monday but added that the body had not urged judges to postpone the walkout. It also follows several meetings between judges from Beirut and the Bekaa, in addition to judges working at the Justice Ministry and civil judges assigned to the Military Tribunal. As such, judges attended work Monday despite earlier calls to initiate a strike.
