Ziad Itani's Case Under the Spotlight after 'Innocence' Declaration

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Saturday said the case of satirist Ziad Itani must not be exploited for “tarnishing” the role of the judiciary and competent security forces, Hariri's media office said.

“To put things in the right perspective, the case of Ziad Itani must be withdrawn from political and media grappling, and stop using it for purposes that harm the role of the judiciary and security apparatuses,” said Hariri.

Interior Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq announced Friday that comedian Ziad Itani detained on spy charges is “innocent,” as reports said a former Internal Security Forces officer is being interrogated over “fabricating” the case of spying for Israel.

“The case is in the hands of judicial and security bodies which assume their responsibilities in accordance with the laws away from any politicization,” the PM said.

“The latest developments in Itani's case are in the judiciary's custody which alone has the right to decide and refer it to the competent security authority for investigation. Attempts to exploit and politicize the issue are unacceptable,” he added.

Mashnuq also said the Lebanese should apologize to Itani “Innocence is not enough. Pride in him and his patriotism is the only firm truth,” he tweeted, slamming those who allegedly framed Itani as “spiteful, foolish and sectarian.”

For his part, Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat lashed out at Mashnouq, he said: “The Lebanese have nothing to do with an apology. No one authorized the minister to speak on their behalf. The authority has to apologize to the Lebanese for the great corruption and chaos,” instead, said Jumblat in a tweet.

TV networks reported that the ISF Intelligence Branch is interrogating Lt. Col. Suzanne al-Hajj over “fabricating the case against Ziad Itani.”

Itani was arrested in November 2017 on charges of collaborating with Israel and gathering information on political figures.

Suzanna

We sit together on the sofa
With the music way down low
Waited so long for this moment
It's hard to think it's really so
The door is locked there's no one home
They've all gone out we're all alone
Su-sanna, Su-sanna
Su-sanna I'm crazy loving you

Her brother in law is Hadi Hobeiche from Al Moustakbal, she was known to be entering in the ISF with the support of Rifi and now they are denying that, stating she is from the FPM when the scandal burst out

ROFL :D

"Le commandant Hobeiche est fière de cette réalisation. «Je suis heureuse d’avoir apporté ma contribution à cette renaissance à laquelle nous assistons au sein des FSI et je suis reconnaissante au général Rifi de m’avoir donné la chance d’y participer», confie-t-elle" http://magazine.com.lb/index.php/fr/mobile/item/2716-suzan-hajj-hobeiche-une-pionnière?issue_id=64?issue_id=64

Thumb janoubi 04 March 2018, 12:25

so what you waffled is evidence according to your one neuron sectarian mind that Suzan Al Hajj is a protege of Rifi?

You have a pathetic existence. Commit suicide and spare yourself the pain of living among human beings.

Thumb blablablablabla 04 March 2018, 12:48

Commiting suicide?

I wouldn't do that. I m enjoying so much my life seeing how losers like you are behaving since you first logged here :D

Very daechist from you you re not even having one neuron.

@blablablabla

You really are subhuman. You claim suzanne al hajj is a riffi appointee/supporter etc. just to make yourself sound knowledgeable.

Let's see:
suzanne al hajj was the head of the cyber crime unit until approximately a month ago when she was put on administrative leave because she tweeted insulting comments against saudi women; something an official in her position should not do.

You claim Riffi is a daesh official in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia is the founding father of Daesh. Why would suzanne al hajj insult Saudi women in her tweets instead of being flattering and supportive since Saudi Arabia according to you is her guardian/sponsor?

Why were OTV and the FPM media up in arms ( and still are ) when she was put on administrative leave?

I tend to agree with the above comments: Commit Suicide and save the world from your pathetic existence.

Thumb blablablablabla 04 March 2018, 13:06

LOL Because you re politicising your point of view of hatetress toward the FPM it doesn't mean she is.

When she got married, she was al Moustakbal, when she was appointed she was Moustakbal when she pressed a like on charbel khalil she committed a mistake but she was a moustabal.

It clearly shows your comment is so illogical that it doesnt need a reply.

BUt anyway, from a daeshist point of view like yours, it isn't surprising.

Go back to Tripoli with your baltalji Rifi boys.

By the way is it still a gay city as we all know worldwide ? You must be enjoying your time with IceNorMan :D

Thumb blablablablabla 04 March 2018, 13:07

Besides all the ISF personnel that entered the ISF during Rifi periods were Moustakbal

Thumb ashtah 04 March 2018, 13:30

do you have a list that shows the total number of ISF intakes during Rifi 'periods' and their confirmed political affiliations? If not, STFU and don't humiliate yourself any further.

Thumb blablablablabla 04 March 2018, 14:55

you re a clown :D

well you just need to consult the Official Gazette but since you re a clown you won't do it

Thumb ashtah 06 March 2018, 12:51

I see; so the official gazette posts the names of the ISF intakes along with their political affiliation?
You deleted my comment 3 times coz it showed what a cheap troll you are!

Thumb justin 06 March 2018, 12:57

yep that's what losers do, delete comments and @blablabla is a confirmed loser:)

Thumb blablablablabla 04 March 2018, 13:10

Besides during RIFI mandate, according to an article written in french so as you re not educated to read the Molière langage, undercover personnel close to Rifi contacted western secret services to handle weapons to your beloved AL Nosra in 2012 through Tripoli and through Aarsal.
In 2014, Al Nosra splited up in 2, some of these weapons went to Daesh.
So do you feel it deeply now ? Very deep ?

Thumb liberty 05 March 2018, 06:23

" Al Nosra splited up in 2"
