General Prosecution Files a Lawsuit against Fneish's Brother over Illegal Medications

The General Prosecution filed a lawsuit on Saturday against Abdul Latif Fneish, brother of Minister of State for Administrative Reform Mohammad Fneish for being involved in the illegal drugs scandal, al-Jadeed television reported.

“Abdul Latif Fneish will be tried for forging medications,” al-Jadeed said.

Media reports revealed in November that the brother of Hizbullah's Minister Fneish might be involved in forging certificates of laboratory tests.

On November 13, General Prosecutor Judge Hatem Madi issued a search and investigative warrant against two people involved in this scandal, including the brother of Fneish.

The other suspect was identified as Fouad Ahmed Wehbeh.

Following the scandal Minister Fneish announced that he would not protect anyone found guilty in this case.

Reports said the forgery has been lingering on for about ten months before it was exposed.

Head of Parliament’s Public Health, Labor and Social Affairs committee MP Atef Majdalani revealed that more than 100 medications had been illegally imported into Lebanon.
