Aoun: I Demand Citizens Not to Obey the Police Intelligence Bureau because it is an Armed Gang

Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun criticized on Tuesday the Police Intelligence Bureau and General Prosecution calling them an "armed gang" demanding citizens not to obey them.

He stressed that the intelligence bureau does not abide by the laws, wondering who it answers to and who monitors its budget.

The MP said after the movement's weekly meeting: "Talk of a state is a big lie because this is a failed state and there are great efforts to destroy it."

Addressing former Genereal Security chief Jamil al-Sayyed's recent positions regarding the investigation in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, Aoun demanded that House Speaker Nabih Berri form a parliamentary investigation committee to investigate with General Prosecutor Saeed Mirza, Internal Security Forces chief Ashraf Rifi, and head of the Intelligence Bureau Wissam al-Hasan because they followed up on the investigation in the crime.

He said that Sayyed can stand trial before the committee along with those he accused in order to reach solutions in the false witnesses file in Hariri's assassination.
