A video exclusive to The961 reveals what took place inside the ProSec company where financial expert Hicham Mekanna claimed he was detained until Judge Ghada Aoun arrived to attempt to raid the office.
Mekanna, tasked with obtaining data from inside the ProSec office, told Al-Jadeed on Wednesday that while he was there, he was forced to stay in the office.
He added that he had a voice recording of himself asking to be allowed out and that the video is merely taken out of context.
However, in the exclusive video, ProSec‘s employees were not seen holding him against his will. Rather, it shows that Mekanna himself was refusing to leave despite the staff repeatedly telling him that he was free to go at any time.
