Sayyed: I Presented a Favor to the Egyptian Embassy in Order for it to Objectively Tackle the Situation

The press office of former General Security chief Major General Jamil al-Sayyed responded on Tuesday to the statement issued by the Egyptian embassy in Lebanon in which he justified his recent statement by saying that he "presented the embassy and its diplomats a favor to objectively tackle the situation."

Sayyed's statement said that the diplomatic official at the embassy is fully responsible for the security of its diplomats "due to the irresponsible positions he is presenting before his Lebanese visitors."

These positions may harm the stability and Lebanese-Syrian-Egyptian relations, it continued.

Sayyed told New TV that the he will hold a press conference once he returns to Lebanon in order to respond to those reacting to his recent press conference.

Furthermore, he told As Safir newspaper that he is preparing a lawsuit against the Special Tribunal for Lebanon demanding it to compensate him morally and financially for his wrongful imprisonment.
