for the occasion all the names of the MPs who did endorse the motion to have the blast indicted officials tried at the Supreme Council instead of a judicial court must be made public on news channels, media oultets, social media and any other means. They need to be ostracized completely from the society, Lebanese people must confront them directly on every possible occasion, public or private, official events or everyday life, covering them with shame and disgrace, rebuking also their family members and relations.
