Judge Demands Hard Labor Life Sentence for al-Hayek in Harb Murder Plot

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

State Commissioner to the Military Court Judge Saqr Saqr asked on Wednesday for a sentence of life in prison with hard labor for a Hizbullah member in the attempted assassination of Batroun MP Butros Harb.

Saqr referred the request against Mahmoud al-Hayek to Military Examining Magistrate Fadi Sawan to issue the indictment.

Sawan issued last month an in absentia arrest warrant for al-Hayek after Saqr charged him with the assassination attempt on Harb last year and with carrying out acts of terror.

Harb, a March 14 opposition lawmaker, escaped the assassination bid after residents of a building in which his office is located in the Beirut district of Badaro discovered individuals trying to booby-trap the elevator.

A string of high-level assassinations struck Lebanon between 2004 and 2008, targeting political, media and security figures who vocally opposed the Syrian government, including former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri who was killed in a powerful car bomb blast in February 2005.

you said it kiserwani: m8 comes here spreading their lies asking for proofs :)
even with such proof, they will refuse this clear matter and ask us to wait for the judgment as they did for samaha.
they are all a bunch of killers, thieves, drug traffickers, money launderers, kidnappers,....
in short the scum of the earth, and they dare call themselves: ashraf elnass. :)

Hizbullah constitution based on pre-historic rules. Kill all voices of moderation. They started by killing civilian teachers at AUB, hijacking planes, murdering Rafik Hariri, the only politician who was helping all Lebanese alike, and never had a weapon. Their prehistoric mind is a fertile soil to grow extremism in other religions.

Helping all Lebanese? Nice delusion.

Rafik Hariri was a thief. Nothing more, nothing less.

Where are all the defenders of Hizb Allah on this website? Why don't they defend them when everything is out in the open that they are murderers and assassins? They were behind the killing of Hariri, Tueini, Gemayel, Hawi and on and on. A resistance movement that kills more Lebanese and Arabs than it does Israelis...

They are the epitome of killing.

Cannot touch him Gabby, hes in Gods lineage and is beyond reproach the most holy of the holy. Besides we will be informed that this was all done by Israel and America as part of their bigger plan to return us back to the middle ages. In reality with current leadership it maybe leap years ahead of where we currently are.
