إعتداء على مراسلة "الجديد" غدي فرنسيس بالضرب خلال "تغطيتها انتخابات للحزب القومي"

Read this story in English W460

تعرضت مراسلة تلفزيون "الجديد" غدي فرنسيس، لاعتداء بالضرب أثناء تغطيتها انتخابات الحزب السوري القومي الإجتماعي في ضهور الشوير.

وقد روت فرنسيس للوكالة الوطنية للاعلام تفاصيل ما حدث، بأنها بينما كانت خارج الفندق الذي تجري فيه الانتخابات، تقدم منها أحد محازبي "القومي" المدعو حسين هاشم وطلب منها المغادرة، فردت بأنها موجودة على الطريق العام، وعندها حاول إجبارها جسديا على المغادرة، وحين قاومته عمد إلى توجيه لكمة إلى خدها وركلها في أماكن متفرقة من جسدها.

وأضافت فرنسيس إن عددا من الموجودين في المكان حاولوا التدخل "ومنهم الزميل في جريدة "الأخبار" فراس الشوفي، فعمد المعتدي إلى لكم الشوفي في وجهه وأدماه".

وإثر الحادث، استنكر الحزب السوري القومي الاجتماعي، في بيان صادر له ما حصل وقال:" التعرض بالضرب لإعلامية تعمل في قناة تلفزيونية زاهرة وعريقة لا يمت بصلة إلى ثقافة القوميين الاجتماعيين، فالحريات، وخصوصا منها الإعلامية، هي شأن مقدس، وانطلاقا من هذا المقدس نتقدم بالاعتذار من قناة "الجديد" ومن رئيس مجلس إدارتها الأستاذ تحسين خياط ومن كل العاملين فيها".

كما نفى الحزب "نفيا قاطعا أن يكون الشخص الذي ذكر اسمه في الحادثة مرافقا لرئيس الحزب النائب أسعد حردان" ، مشيرا الى أنه "زميل للإعلامية فرنسيس ويعمل في جريدة البناء".

وختم البيان بالتأكيد على أنه "سيتابع هذا الموضوع أمام الجهات المختصة لتبيان كل الملابسات".

وتعليقا على الحادث، أصدرت جمعية "إعلاميون ضد العنف" بيانا استنكرت فيه الاعتداء على فرنسيس، ودعت السلطات المختصة "إلى التحرك العاجل من أجل تعقب الفاعل واتخاذ التدابير القضائية بحقه".

واعتبرت الجمعية "أن هذا الاستهداف المتمادي للصحافيين مرده للبيئة الحاضنة التي توفرها حكومة "حزب الله" في محاولة متواصلة لإسكات الأصوات الحرة وتدجين الأقلام الجريئة والتعتيم على الحقائق وتشويه الوقائع".

Now all the media reporters should start a "media resistance" and carry arms with them all the time.

Next time one of the polticians bodyguards punches a woman in the face, it will rain bullets on his own.

since yesterday, I have been astonished at this news!
are we in lebanon? is this happening here?
things happening here these days represent us lebanese? since when a woman is punched in the face and kicked several times? (and in public)
are the thugs driving our life?
with this government all the thugs are loose to do whatever they want unpunished!
definately we need to be constantly armed to face this law of the jungle era.
good job m8....

All we Lebanese are good at doing is claiming that we are always right and who ever disagrees with us should be shot dead on the spot! A bit of humility and modesty would far for us Lebanese!

What a shoking sexist and chauvinistic statement! Then again maybe not so stoking considering the source is M8. Their actions and speech betray their true neanderthal philosophy and state of mind.

The SSNP should be placed in the bin of Lebanons History, a party of such idoelogy would not be permitted to operate in a normal civil country.

As bad as this incident is, and the perpetrator deserves to be beaten to death, Hariri Mafia killed two supporters of Shaker Berjawi not long ago in Beirut and destroyed scores of cars and private and public property and not one word about the incident was written here. Democracy, freedom and sovereignty alright, as well as the love of life and the institutions. ya 3ein

so, somehow this is still justified in your eyes.

I feel sorry for you and the people that chose to be your friends. In no civilized country should this be allowed. Of course, these are syrian supporters, so it's probably business as usual in their eyes.

We never said we support this samiam! We said all such acts should be published not only the ones that are of interest to M14. Nothing else. Read before you comment you will look smarter :)

And you still fight and protect your leadership after you see and hear things like this? lets have the usual diatribe about M8 or M16, this is the character of being Lebanese we speak with a forked tongue. On one hand we condemn violence and on the other we wish it upon all who disagree with us. pitiful....

Physical violence is the practice of those who lack the intelligence to talk. And to hit a woman is plain retardation.

On another note, shouldn't the article say SSNP "apologized to al Jadeed" rather than apologized from al Jadeed", it sounds like a translation from Arabic... With all due respect to the Naharnet staff who do a great job in my opinion.

how can you apologize and deny it at the same time?

The people accusing the person of probably "being part of M14" are stupid, we all know that, but then the people from M14 come here and say that this bodyguard represents all of M8. Ahhhh, Lebanon. No thinking, just shouting.

How else kan SSNP and ther likes prove they are "real" men? Another alternative is to hide in a hole.

i d like to ask FPMers how they feel to be allied to a party that wants lebanon and syria to be one... who denies the existence of lebanon and dream of a greater syria! isn t that contradictory to what they pretend to want? a sovereign and independent lebanon?

see how illogic FPM and M8 are....

please give me a clear reference or statement from M8 supporting your words :)

Some Sunni Islamists M14 supporters believe in a world Sunni Islamic state. The SSNP want Syria and Lebanon to unite, but not under Hariri!! It is an ideology you fool just like the Phalange still talks about a "Christian" state in Lebanon.

Ghadi Francis is part of the SSNP, by the way. Just pointing this out so people know that the reason he beat her is probably not political.

After all, she said to the SSNP exactly what Dr. Hayto Wati said when Joumblat insulted him (and Jumblat insults everybody, even himself, but nobody is as Hayto Wateh as Dr. Hayto Wateh): darb alhabeeb metl akl el zbeeb
