Judge Zaher Hamadeh Just Summoned Peter Bou Saab Again

Judge Zaher Hamadeh just summoned Peter Bou Saab for questioning for the second time in two days.

Peter Bou Saab, who lost his firefighting brother in the Beirut Port blast, already expressed that he wouldn’t go for questioning the first time he was summoned a couple of days ago by Judge Zaher Hamadeh.

13 relatives of the Beirut Port blast victims were just brought in for questioning at the Barbar Khazen police barracks in Verdun, Beirut, this morning and then released. Peter Bou Saab didn’t show up.

This followed a week-long escalation in protests by mostly the families of the victims over the stalemate and attempted obstruction of the investigation into the Beirut Blast that left 244 people killed.

Over the weekend, William Noun, a victim’s brother, was arrested and detained by State Security for allegedly threatening to blow up the Justice Palace if they don’t get justice.

This led to a chaotic night of reactions including multiple road and highway closures across Lebanon in protest as well as MPs getting involved. Here’s the full recap of that night.
