A judicial source told MTV that the State Security finished its investigation with William Noun at 9 am and was planning to release him.

However, according to the source, Judge Zaher Hamadeh asked to postpone his release, summon Peter Bou Saab, and is now no longer answering his phone.

Yesterday, William Noun‘s family house was raided by authorities and he’s been detained ever since.

Protestors closed roads and highways across Lebanon in support. MPs have publicly called this out, with several making their way into the State Security facility to be with William Noun.

Protests have been escalating the last few days over frustrations of stalemate and attempted obstruction of the Beirut Port blast investigation.
