Report: Lebanese-Austrian Woman Goes Missing in Lebanonإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Security forces are searching for a Lebanese-Austrian woman who was reportedly kidnapped after arriving in Lebanon on Monday, media reports said.
The National News Agency reported that the Baabda police station received a phone call on Tuesday on the 112 emergency hotline from mobile number 78-881299 in which a woman, who identified herself as Maria Sadeq, claimed she was kidnapped and assaulted by two people.
The woman said she didn’t know her whereabouts but believed she is held at the house of her kidnappers who were in the next room.
Security forces have so far failed to identify her location over their inability to access the telecom data which has created controversy in Lebanon.
But the case has been referred to the Internal Security forces General Directorate to ask for the telecom data and investigate whether the woman’s claims are true.
The interior ministry said earlier this month that only the competent judicial committee decides whether security agencies can obtain the information on telecommunication records.
