Bitar Schedules Interrogation Sessions for ex-Ministers and Diab
Beirut port blast investigative judge Tarek Bitar has scheduled sessions for the interrogation of three former ministers and ex-PM Hassan Diab, TV networks said on Tuesday.
The TV networks said ex-minister Ali Hassan Khalil has been summoned to appear before Bitar on October 12 while Ghazi Zoaiter and Nouhad al-Mashnouq have been summoned for questioning on October 13. Both dates precede the date of parliament’s return to session, which means that the ex-ministers who are also incumbent MPs will not enjoy parliamentary immunity.
A session to interrogate Diab has meanwhile been set for October 28, the TV networks added.
