If you are military and corrupt, your punishment is LL200,000 according to the Military court:

ختمت المحكمة العسكرية الدائمة برئاسة العميد الركن حسين عبدالله المحاكمات في سلسلة من الملفات التي تنظر فيها، وفي عدادها ملف يحاكم فيه أربعة عشر مدعى عليهم من العسكريين بتهمة الاشتراك في ما بينهم، قبول ودفع رشاوى من أجل تطويع مدنيين في الجيش وتمديد خدمات عسكريين وتوظيف آخرين، فقضت بتغريم نقيب في الجيش (هو الأعلى رتبة بينهم) ومؤهل سابق ورقيب مبلغا وقدره 200 ألف ليرة، وتغريم ستة آخرين من المدعى عليهم مبلغ 1900 ليرة عن كل واحد منهم.

Today, by definition, being a soldier = being corrupt. When the LAF doesn’t stop armed convoys going / coming from / to Syria or going south despite the U.N.resolution, they break the law and are unpatriotic. It’s treason and deserves the harshest of all sentences, death.

That's unfair. Soldiers obey orders, they don't invent them and I wouldn't want the LAF soldiers to invent orders. The unpatriotic corruption is from the civilian officials who are failing in they duty to give the army the proper orders.

You can’t have this logic as defense, the nazi soldiers were following orders too. Still, the LAF and the Nazis aren’t too different.

'sentenced three people in absentia'


They must have confessed on WhatsApp.

Thumb warrior 11 July 2018, 05:21

They are now embarrassed to say the suspect 'confessed' so they try them in absentia.

Trying people in absentia is the easiest as they cannot defend themselves. Well done LAF you meet with the expectations of the power of the day. And some wonder why we are a banana republic?
