Charbel’s Coat Stolen Twice during Romania Visit

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Interior Minister Marwan Charbel’s coat was stolen twice during his visit to Romania with President Michel Suleiman earlier this week, reported the daily Ad Diyar on Sunday.

The first theft took place during a dinner thrown in Suleiman’s honor by his Romanian counterpart Traian Basescu.

The minister had handed his coat over to the coat check upon his arrival to the dinner, but when it was time to leave, the garment was not found.

Officials of the Romanian presidential palace were quick to inform Basescu of the incident, who promptly presented the interior minister with a new one.

Charbel was robbed yet again during another dinner, with Basescu’s coat being the new victim.

The following day, the minister grew cold during a ceremony in which Suleiman presented a wreath at the fallen soldiers’ monument, which prompted the president to order that the minister be granted a third coat.

The people who stole it knew his pockets were full of stolen money.

not an issue as it was purchased with dirty money, probably with the billion dollars missing at Ministry of Finance and Banque du Liban.

Slow news day??

The coats where not stolen, Charbel could not remember where he left them. They will probably end up for auction on EBay... "Almost new, previously owned by Clueless Politician"
