Oqab Saqr Accuses Sayyed of 'Intimidating People, Tempting Others'

MP Oqab Saqr said he will choose the "right moment" to uncover the name of the mediator who was dispatched by former head of Lebanon's General Security Directorate Maj. Gen. Jamil Sayyed to PM Saad Hariri to ask for $15 million in return for giving up his case.

Saqr, in remarks published Wednesday by An-Nahar newspaper, accused Sayyed of "intimidating people and persuading others to get out of this (blackmail) issue."
