In a press statement issued on Thursday, families of firefighters who were killed by the August 4 Beirut Port Explosion expressed complete trust and support for Judge Tarek Bitar.
“We are his voice on the ground,” they said. The families called on all Lebanese to join them in a painful remembrance on August 4th in a march carrying pictures of the martyrs and voice out people’s pain inside the Beirut Port.
They added that there will be no political presence.
