Taking a similar approach to former Beirut Blast investigator Judge Fadi Sawwan, who was removed after charging politicians, investigative Judge Tarek Bitar is now going after political and security figures, NNA confirmed.
The investigation has made little progress in the past year. However, the inclination to summon previously indicted officials showcases their possible links to the blast no matter their categorical denial.
It is worth noting that Diab, who was a university professor upon his designation of Prime Minister, was practically new in the political stage and in his position when the explosion occurred.
