Report: Makari to Stay in Paris after Threats

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Deputy Speaker Farid Makari is planning to stay in France until next April over recent threats made against him, al-Liwaa newspaper reported on Thursday.

Al-Liwaa said that Makari, who is a member of the March 14 opposition alliance, “has decided not to return to Beirut at this stage.”

The daily quoted an informed parliamentary source as saying that his decision came following “threats.”

“So he decided to stay in France until April 2013,” the source added.

Several March 14 officials and MPs have received death threats through text messages and at least two have escaped assassination attempts.

Makari's alleged decision came as Tripoli Mufti Sheikh Malek al-Shaar announced on Wednesday that he will not be returning to Lebanon from a trip to Europe after receiving information that he could be the target of an assassination plot.

These people have it made. They get paid, and they are not even staying in Lebanon. When a leader is useless to his country, he should resign. Why do I want to be in a government, which I don't have much respect for. I guess they are in it for financial security.

He'll return as soon as Bashar dies... When the Alpha goes away, the beta (hezbollah) will be lost and will stop the killings.

the beta will never stop, unless we put some courage, and finish them...these guys have become overly dangerous (beyond any naive reasoning or optimism), and need to be done with...

What a shame that threats are forcing these people to stay abroad. Why isn't there a government response to this.

The threat is within. If Hezb isn't a proxy to these threats, they should openly come out and tell these threatened people not to worry. But I doubt they will do that.
