Bassil Warns against Amnesty Law that would Strengthen 'Crime'

W460

Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Jebran Bassil on Sunday warned against approving an amnesty law that would “consolidate the strength of crime.”

“As if we haven’t learned from the amnesty laws that were approved after the war, which eliminated the principle of accountability and opened the doors wide to corruption,” Bassil tweeted.

“Today the people are calling for putting on trial every suspect and holding accountable every wrongdoer and we support the harshening of penalties and approving anti-corruption laws,” Bassil added.

“Instead of consolidating the strength of crime, we must consolidate the strength of the judiciary,” he said.

Parliament is scheduled to discuss a general amnesty draft law on Tuesday.

MP Yassine Jaber has announced that those accused of financial crimes cannot benefit from the proposed law.

Without this unfair law, you'd never have married the POS Aoun's daughter. You'd be selling termoss on some cart in Hamra.

واكيم يفضح سبب انقلاب باسيل على قانون العفو العام

أكد عضو تكتل الجمهورية القوية النائب عماد واكيم، أنه “بالمختصر المفيد ودحضاً لكذب الباسليين اسمعوا جيداً: عندما الفت الحكومة لجنة لدراسة قانون العفو دون وجود مسودة كان وزراء القوات موجودين واللجنة لم تعقد اي اجتماع عندما طرح الرئيس الحريري خطته كان وزراء القوات قد سبق واستقالوا وكان حضور كامل لوزراء التيار وموافقة بالاجماع”.

وأضاف، عبر “تويتر”، “في الجلسة التي طرح فيها الحريري خطته مع قانون العفو وافق باسيل استرضاء للحريري لتشكيل الحكومة عندما لم يوافق الحريري على تشكيل الحكومة وفق الطلب انقلب جبران الى الضغط عليه ورفض
قانون العفو هذا القانون او غيره لا يهم جبران الا كسلعة سياسية فهو يعتبر نفسه السلطة وفوق القوانين”.
