Al-Mustaqbal MP Qqab Saqr will hold a press conference on Thursday to respond to criticisms about his alleged involvement in arming the Free Syrian Army against President Bashar Assad's forces in the neighboring country.
Saqr will also be revealing the engagement of other Lebanese parties in Syria's events, Future TV reported on Tuesday.
The MP admitted on Monday that the three-part series on recordings published in al-Akhbar newspaper were authentic.
The newspaper had unveiled a taped conversation between him (Saqr) and Abou Nehman, a “leader in the armed Syrian opposition”, during which they apparently agree on a weapon delivery deal.
Meanwhile, General Prosecutor Judge Hatem Madi tasked on Tuesday the Central Criminal Investigations Bureau with examining audio recordings implicating Saqr in the transfer of arms to Syria in order to take the necessary decisions in light of the Lebanese regulations and the bilateral treaties with the Syrian government.
