A young man broke into the Justice Palace in Tripoli, the capital of North Lebanon, early Sunday morning. Upwards of 25,000 US dollars (nearly 40 million LL) was stolen from the Public Prosecution of the palace.
ِAfter suspecting a person of being involved in the robbery and summoning his father, that person was handed over by the father himself. He was identified as M.kh.A, a cleaning and maintenance worker at the justice palace.
Later on, judicial sources revealed that the father of M.kh.A noticed something was off with his son after he bought a motorcycle. This had led the father to search and find a huge sum of money in his possession.
The information stated that the young man broke into the back door of Tripoli's Justice Palace and entered into 4 registries. He also stole some drugs seized in Public Prosecutor's office, which reveals that he is most likely a drug addict.
Tripoli's Justice Palace was inaugurated on in October 2015 in presence of former Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi, former Public Works and Transportation Minister, Ghazi Zaiter, and former MP Samir Jisr.
