Geagea says unacceptable for authorities to say Hasrouni probe can't continue


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on Friday stressed that it is “unacceptable” for authorities to say that they have been prevented from continuing the probe into the abduction and killing of LF member Elias Hasrouni.

Addressing caretaker PM Najib Mikati, caretaker Interior Minister Bassam Mawlawi, caretaker Justice Minister Henri Khoury and State Prosecutor Ghassan Oueidat, Geagea said the LF has repeatedly asked security agencies about the progress of the investigation.

“We have received a single answer, which is that security agencies can no longer move forward with the investigation because they are being prevented from doing so,” Geagea added.

“This is unacceptable in all standards. We know that we are living under a corrupt state controlled by Hezbollah, but it is totally rejected for things to reach the extent of blocking a probe into the assassination of a Lebanese citizen,” the LF leader went on to say.

He accordingly called on Mikati, Mawlawi, Khoury, Oueidat and the investigative judges to “shoulder their responsibilities and ask security agencies to continue the probe until the end” so that “the truth can be unveiled and justice can be fulfilled.”

Brilliant idea lebateeese! Go ahead, drag the collaborator out of his sewer hiding place but instead of a tire drench his filthy turban with petrol tie it around his neck and set it on fire. As the collaborator burns, don't forget to do the sacred dance that you do, jump in place while you slap yourself silly like your Curly.
