Othman Slams 'Inaccuracy' after Reports Say Top Officer 'Facilitating Prostitution'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Internal Security Forces chief Maj. Gen. Imad Othman lamented Wednesday what he called “inaccuracy,” after media reports said the head of the ISF's Bureau for Combating Morality Crimes had been detained on charges of “involvement in running prostitution rings.”

“What is being circulated lacks the least requirements of accuracy and can be labeled as repugnant defamation,” Othman said in a statement.

“The Directorate General of the ISF is the only side entitled to announce the results of its investigations and it rejects all the circulated reports and fabrications,” the ISF chief added.

The aforementioned bureau's chief, Colonel Johnny Haddad, was “summoned to interrogation Monday evening and subsequently detained in connection with financial ties to the owner of a touristic project in the Choueifat area suspected of being used for illegal prostitution,” media reports said on Wednesday.

“Five policemen were summoned to interrogation on Tuesday morning and three of them were detained as the two others were freed,” the reports added.

inaccurate doesn't mean fake.... we know the officer was taking bakhishes from the hotel manager....

As mentioned below, from what I read on social media it appears he is in partnership with this establishment and was providing 'protection'.

FPM at best, they're the 'Christian' Hizbala, but without the Christian values just like Hizbala and their none existent Islamic values. Both run 'protection' programs for money....

Another FPM Colonel 'fighting' corruption.

Johnny Haddad is a partner in this 'pleasure' project.

That is how the military can afford luxury cars; two/three maids, private schools and universities for their children; the latest fashion for their wives and mistresses; luxury vacations abroad.

The reports are inaccurate, Colonel Johnny Haddad was summoned to interrogation late Monday afternoon, not Monday evening. The rest is fine and on the nose.

If the head of the nation runs the largest political and economical sham the nation has seen what would you expect his officers to be like?

As I wrote yesterday, I don’t trust the cops, the army and even less the terrorist org aka Hizbala.

Let Ivan (or Vlad aka Volodia) come for 90 days!
