Hizbullah has informed Lebanese authorities that it hasn’t adopted the stance of MP Mohammed Raad on the arrest of former Minister Michel Samaha, informed sources told An Nahar daily on Saturday.
The sources said the Hizbullah leadership told the concerned officials that Raad’s pledge not to remain silent to Samaha’s arrest did not represent the stance of the Shiite party.
Except for Raad’s announcement, none of the other major parties that make up the Hizbullah-led March 8 alliance have announced support for the former MP and information minister.
Samaha was arrested on Thursday morning at his Jwar al-Khenshara home in the North Metn by the Internal Security Forces Intelligence Branch for reportedly transporting explosives in his vehicle from Syria to carry out bombing attacks mainly in the North.
He was referred to a military tribunal on Saturday.
