A statement issued on behalf of representatives of Lebanon's top judicial bodies Friday congratulated judges on the "moral achievement" of the parliament's approval of a pay raise, and said the judges will resume with their duties, after a month-long strike to push demands.The statement comes in response to Parliament's approval of a pay hike for judges in Thursday evening's session, passed to put an end to a monthslong strike by judges demanding an increase in wages.The judges' one and a half month judicial recess was also restored in yesterday's session, which was attended by the Higher Judicial Council head Judge Jean Fahed to press for demands.
