Accusatory Committee Overrules Court Decision to Release Alaeddineإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
The accusatory committee of Beirut overruled on Wednesday a recent court order to release one of the attackers against al-Jadeed television, instead deciding to keep him in custody.
Judge Nada Dakroub overruled Beirut Examining Magistrate Judge Ghassan Owaidat’s decision, which called for keeping Wissam Alaeddine under judicial supervision.
He had also ordered that his passport be confiscated.
Alaeddine is charged with attempted murder and the possession of weapons.
Last week, unknown gunmen attacked al-Jadeed television's headquarters in the Beirut neighborhood of Wata el-Msaytbeh, opening fire on the building, hurling Molotov bombs and setting fire to tires.
Alaeddine was detained at the scene after his clothes caught fire.
