Report: Bassil to sue army chief after his term ends
The issue of the army commander post will take center stage in the next few weeks, amid “the lack of chances to reach a solution in the presidential file prior to the January 10 expiry of the army chief’s term,” MTV reported on Tuesday.
Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil is meanwhile waging an “all-out war” against the army chief, General Joseph Aoun, the TV network said.
Bassil is waging his “war” on three fronts: preventing Aoun from becoming president, blocking the extension of his term as army chief and suing him after the end of his term, MTV said.
“A legal file is being prepared in this regard in cooperation with a prominent judge,” the TV network added.
