The families were demonstrating in front of the house of investigative Judge Fadi Sawan demanding that he pursues his investigation into the tragic explosion that left 200 dead and thousands injured. أهالي الضحايا عاملين اعتصام قدام بيت فادي صوّان. ام بلش الامن فيهم ضرب ! #٤_آب #سلطة_ساقطة #التدقيق_الجنائي_الآن #لبنان pic.twitter.com/dAonriStW9— Marie-Rose Osta (@marieroseosta) February 1, 2021 The investigation, which was initially supposed to take 5 days, has not produced real results in almost 6 months since the disaster. As officials, including the sitting President, Michel Aoun, knew about the dangerous ammonium nitrate stored at the Beirut Port, the blast could have been prevented had the government been duly alert.

However, oppression by the state’s authorities is attempting to cut out the lights on justice. اهالي ضحايا انفجار بيروت يسألون عن التحقيق بجريمة قتل ابنائهم.. الرد جاء بقمعهم بشكل وحشي ..لا تعليق .. pic.twitter.com/nCMDJkDJTY— Salman Andary (@salmanonline) February 1, 2021 Share on Facebook WhatsApp Donate Tweet Copy Link Support our independent media - contribute today!
