Report: Buthaina Shaaban Involved in Samaha-Mamlouk Case

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The Internal Security Forces' Intelligence Bureau has discovered that Syrian President Bashar Assad's media adviser Buthaina Shaaban is involved in ex-minister Michel Samaha's case, a media report said on Friday.

“The Intelligence Bureau has referred an additional file in Samaha's case that includes the involvement of Buthaina Shaaban,” MTV quoted high-ranking sources as saying.

The file includes the analysis of phone conversations between Shaaban and Samaha made during the latter's presence in Damascus, the report said.

“Samaha called Shaaban and informed her of the steps he intended to make,” the sources clarified.

The sources revealed that “the file has been referred to the military prosecutor who in turn will refer it to the military investigative judge,” adding that the latter would study the case and issue an arrest warrant.

Lebanese judicial authorities have charged Samaha and Syrian security chief Maj. Gen. Ali Mamlouk with forming a group to commit terrorist crimes in Lebanon.

The two were also charged with plotting to assassinate political and religious figures.

A judicial source told Agence France Presse that General Mamlouk is "suspected of forming a group to provoke sectarian killings and terrorist acts using explosives, which were transported and stored by Samaha.”

The indictment also mentions a Syrian Colonel identified as Brig. Gen. Adnan.

It is time to bring in Interpol and the World court system. The ASSad rebime is an international terror group trying to create civil war and killing in Lebanon. When will the Lebanese courts indict them?

No one associated with the Assad regime could plead innocence in any of the crimes this regime has committed through the years. They are all partners in crime and their judgement day is getting closer.

Not everyone with Assad is guilty... One cannot judge all of them as if they were equals. By doing so, it would mean that one would be doing the same as Assad has been doing to his own people...

lol! you forgot that hezbos berri frangieh not only gave the key to one city but to the whole country and still are praying for them to come back...

funny how you praise orangina because he changed saying that only fools don t change so why don t you apply your logic to others... sinioura and hariri changed by being anti assad while your orangina became pro assad supporting this regime now!....
oh! and you forgot also what aoun said that even the most honest politician had to obey syria or die...
so your remarks are totally irrelevant as usual....

no matter how much you want to distort the past the fact of the matter remains that M8 are the ones still defending ASSad and his regime to the teeth...end of story.

It's knuckleheads sir and if you're still in doubt that the syrian regime has been responsible for 90% of the terror in Lebanon since the 70's then it's time for you to look in the mirror.

to bad that you follow the corrupt leaders that tell you what to say and do.
I'm not backing anybody, but you don't leak investigative information to the press, or try anybody in the media
that's called democracy and justice my son, if you didn't know it

Missing abraham 06 October 2012, 18:56

So a judge makes a judgement and refers the file to a prosecutor and leaks the information to the media what he did, wooww
I bet he informed the guilty party too
sorry this is lebanese justice <guilty until proven innocent>
How do we know that the file is not made up evidance
just asking

Yes the truth is spoken because Samaha had been in custody and being investigated for over two months.
On the other hand, I like women in black that show class so I am sure Samaha was after her skirt and got screwed by paying the price of his stupidity. She probably took care of him in Damascus and he paid the price in Lebanon.
