Berri: Parliament to Hold Open-Ended Sessions to Grill Govt. over Great Crime


Parliament will hold open-ended sessions as of Thursday to grill the government over “the great crime that affected the capital and the people,” Speaker Nabih Berri said on Sunday, referring to the catastrophic Beirut port blast.

Berri said the sessions will be held at the UNESCO Palace in Beirut instead of parliament’s building in downtown Beirut -- an area hit by massive devastation from the explosion and angry demonstrations.

Berri’s announcement comes amid seven resignations from parliament by the MPs Sami Gemayel, Nadim Gemayel, Elias Hankash, Marwan Hamadeh, Paula Yacoubian, Neemat Frem and Michel Mouawad.

You and your kind are the ones who shouldn’t be talking about democracy, you’re either Benefiting from his corruption or you’re simply one sided religious idiot who follows a criminal.

The greatest crime is Berri still being in power at the parlament.

I swear these people are unbelievable! The holier than thou attitude from the king of corruption is mind boggling. They have no shame! Just freakin leave the whole lot of you. All these useless negligent criminals are counting on the few stupid sheep they still have supporting them to continue to cling on to power. Just go and leave the bruised country try to patch itself up without having to see your miserable faces and hear your nauseating names. Tfeh

Well said Levant wa salim timak. Sadly your arguing with a brain washed gas stations attendant who has a prayer bruise on his forehead and flip flops on the other end. He has the IQ of a bird in spring and has nothing to say past what he is being told. The whole scheme of Kizb has failed as expected but to add insult onto misery they brought the nation down with them. Tfeh 3ala heik sha3b.
